my list of seed varieties to grow for 2017

Garden Planning

My total number of varieties to grow this year is 132. I’ve saved 9 myself, have 102 packets saved from previous years, and I’ll buy (or share with other gardeners) another 21. I’ll just grow a few plants of most varieties so I can try a lot of different ones. I’m trying 14 new varieties and many varieties that I grew last year that I won’t grow this year.
