You Never Have the Same Garden Twice
Have you ever viewed a gardener’s shed and wondered why he has saved little bags of vegetables seeds? Why would a person take the trouble to separate the seeds and store them with the needed care and labeling when it is so easy to buy seeds? Well, it is almost a sure bet that a seeds collection of an avid gardener has resulted from many years of seeking out and purchasing many seeds he thought may take his fancy. Some may have developed into old friends and are lovingly replanted each year. Others may be more whimsical that appear only in years when the garden mood needs a change. That is part of the wonder of proper planning and planting techniques in gardening. You never have the same garden twice.
