Seed Excitment
« on: January 29, 2015, 08:39:02 am »
At Christmas from work we got 15 of shop vouchers.  This is the amount the revenue allow without paying tax on them.  I was a bit sniffy and dismissive and later felt spoiled and bratty about the gift.

So what I am doing is using mine on plants from Wilko (the shops that take the vouchers are limited), I am then giving some to people at work and at home, they will plant some for themselves and some in pots which will be sold in a plant sale for the dog charity I support (long story, but it's an English lady in Bulgaria doing dog rescue)...

I will of course grow for the plant sale as well.  Some other people have donated their vouchers as well, so i should have LOTS OF SEEDS and hopefully LOTS OF PLANTS!

I was trying to think of maximising the gift and this was the only way I came up with.

Plantmageddon starts today!!!  :)

Don't wrestle with pigs, they will love it and you will just get all muddy.

I do love your idea of growing seeds and selling them for charity, that's awesome.
