You know you’ve arrived when people start sending you free stuff. In the post today mtp recieved some complimentary seeds (Tomato, Courgette, Basil and Kale) courtesy of Seeds of Italy. You know Seeds of Italy – usually on revolving wire rackets in your local garden centre, very bright large packets with instructions in more languages than you can recognise. I must admit I have only ever bought one pack before. I guess I just thought that the weather here wasn’t warm enough for seeds that would prefer to be in Italy. Maybe they should change their name to… Seeds of Slough, no?… anyway, thanks for the free seeds, I will be sowing them, I will be growing them and I will be reporting back.
