I'm curious why you don't like it? I've always dreamed of moving to Christmas Island and retiring. Maybe some day....
I have a large bag of garlic I hot at the grocery store. I really like the taste and size - it's spicier and larger than the stuff we usually get. It looks like a hard neck variety a central woody stem extending off a base. I want to try to grow this garlic in the garden. Any ideas to test if it will sprout? Also, we are well into winter but this year has been mild. I can dig the soil in the raised beds still, so is it safe to plant now? I hear waiting for Spring tends to result in less growth of the bulbs.
GOOD LUCK TO YOU!Y'all. I have taken my seed buying obsession to the next level. I started pre-ordering bulk seeds last year and I'm just about ready to launch my website offering packets of a lot of the same varieties from the same growers that Territorial Seeds, Baker Creek, Johnny's etc. offers seed from. I'm still trying to flesh out my inventory a bit and I'm so nervous! I was hoping this might pay my way through this semester of school, at least, but honestly I've bought way more than tuition cost on seeds so far and I'm scared to death that I won't even recoup my investment.
Anyway, that's why I have 75 varieties of tomatoes. Guess I should fess up. Also, I just roped my dad into helping me with the business, and that's strangely exciting.
What are the top five species of seeds that you buy? I wish I could get some of everything and my personal tendency is to "go weird" but dad thinks I should offer normal "staple" type varieties, too.
What would you do?
Love my new logo, but I feel like it should have a chicken, version, too.

Anyway I post this here because that's what I did for the garden today—bought more seeds. I want to propagate and save seed from as many as possible this year to reduce what I have to purchase for next year... if it proves to be a viable thing to do, at least.
