One of my main goals for this year is to be as frugal as is reasonable with the garden. I sat down and updated my seed inventory yesterday, finally throwing away some tomato seeds from my very first seed order ever in 2012. I want to have a cohesive garden this year and focus on growing things I like and growing them well.
Based on my current seed inventory, the only seeds I really need to order are onion and shallot. I have never successfully grown these before, though I got close last year. I have a better idea of what I need to do and as such, growing onions is on my list of 2018 Garden Goals.
On the flip side, the only seeds I need to order this year are onions and shallots. This has led me down a wild path of looking at seed companies I had never heard of and debating the merits of this onion versus this onion and blah blah blah. It’s utterly ridiculous, but I’m only growing one type of onion and one type of shallot since the seed is only good for one year and I have limited space.
I probably won’t decide until February. In part because that is when I will feel assured I will get onion packed for the 2018 season and in part because I will agonize over the onion choices for at least another month.
