Planning a Vegetable Garden and Seed Exchange

Plan Your Spring Garden by Attending a Seed Exchange

Here's a post from CasaSugar Community member radecor from The Girls' Guide to Gardening:

So to keep moving forward with my vegetable garden, I signed up to attend my first seed exchange next weekend. It is being hosted by Washington Gardener Magazine, and I was fortunate to meet the editor last year at a garden tweet up. Even better, the editor lives in my neighborhood!

No, I don't have any seeds to exchange, but I am hoping to get seeds to plant!  Apparently there will be plenty of leftover seeds after the swap, and I will be there to scoop them up! I have been thinking about what to plant, and my garden advisory team (soon-to-be garden biz owner Varetta and Mom) suggested that I plant things I like to eat!  Good advice. I spoke to my uncle last summer about fences and garden pests, and he also gave me advice on which plants would work well in a small city garden.

So armed with that information, I have come up with my beginning list for next weekend.

radecor's gardening list - version 1

  • Spinach (if I could eat this everyday, I would)
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Cucumbers
  • Squash
  • Eggplant
  • Tomatoes (i am not a tomato-eater but family members are, and I can use them in sauces)
  • Strawberries??

 

So . . . if you are planning a garden for Spring, check and see if your area is hosting a seed exchange! I will report back after next week (both here and my own blog) and let you know how it went!
