Free Seeds!

Each month in Kitchen Garden magazine (brilliant!) there is a free seed giveaway. This morning a big envelope arrived with 10 packets of free seeds. These are all for Autumn planting right now, all are hardy veggies which will overwinter well. Some White Lisbon, Winter hardy spring onions; a couple of frost hardy lettuce; winter parsley; and some Japanese onion seeds with a name that is something like 'shitzu' or 'sen cha' - anyway. In view of my desire to fill my cavernous 'hungry gap'..... I will get planting.

P.S. Anyone with a knowledge of the British 'Carry-on' films may have guessed that my love of the double-entendre is the reason I have this nickname.
