I was delighted to receive a package from Bifurcated Carrots in Amsterdam with some new to me garlic bulbs - German Extra Hardy, Polish White and the very coffee house sounding Red Toch.
They've also included some tomato seeds - yellow, pink and black varities to add interest next year. I'll be reporting.
For those of you new to seed saving and seed sharing there is an interesting programme on BBC Radio 4 ' A World in Your Ear' available to listen again over the internet until Saturday. Follow the link from here to hear Neenah Ellis of Grandmothers' Seeds explain why it matters.
