Congratulations Pros, and a BIG WELL DONE to the prize winners on sharing your prizes. Great to see the Spirit of Christmas in action.

I thought I’d share with you some photos I took today of the Faerie tree that grows in our bog.

An update:

The money has been divided between Premier Seeds Direct (for seed buying!) and Amazon (for kit buying!) I've now had a lovely parcel from Premier Seeds Direct which has filled in lots of gaps in my seed collection, and hopefully resulted in a few interesting seeds that will be great to add to future seed swaps (I've deliberately tried to choose less common varieties, and avoid F1 varieties to allow seed saving).

I've bought:

Passion flower
Squash Blue Hubbard
Squash Galeux D'Eysines
Squash Uchiki Kuri
Oregano
Marjoram
Herb Fennel (Bronze)
Coriander
Asparagus Pea
Broad Bean Masterpiece
Lima O Del Papa Bean
Beetroot Burpees Golden
Beetroot Detroit Dark Red
Beetroot Albino White
Carrot Rainbow Mix
Carrot Royal Chantenay
Onion Red Baron
Onion Ailsa Craig
Pumpkin Rouge Vif D'Etampes
Celeriac Giant Prague
Kohlrabi Early White Vienna
Radish Mixed Coloured Easter Egg
Radish Mooli Minowase
Radish Zlata Yellow
Swede Wilhelmsburger
Mustard Wasabina
Mustard Komatsuna Tendergreen
Parsnip Tender and True
Winter Radish Black Spanish Round
Winter Radish Watermelon Red Meat

Sent a photograph of my mound of seeds to my parents and my Dad has asked if I know I don't have a farm? Big Grin

I have already sown lots of onion seeds, and will start sowing radishes in a few days. I do seem to have bought a lot of radishes (especially as I already have some) but I think they are a really nice catch crop, pollinators love the flowers, and I really like adding radish pods to salads as well as the bulbs, and cooking with radish leaves. I also have a lot of squash given my limited growing space, but hopefully I will manage to squeeze one plant of each in somewhere!

Thank you all again so much.

Lovely selection Pros! Squash don't have to take up huge amounts of ground space - grow them upwards! They're great on cattle panels that are bent over to form tunnels, if you like Smile

What a lovely collection of joy!
I love Burpees golden beetroot - I once used some to make a beautiful tart, but MrPP was very upset as he thought it was a peach tart!!
Asparagus pea? Umm, very pretty flowers but it only made it to the kitchen once.
