Planting on my Mind

I've obviously got  planting things and growing my own food on my mind.  I slipped this magazine in my supermarket shopping trolley yesterday without even giving it more than a cursory thought.  

I had spotted the free seeds and gift on the front cover, and although the little plastic things look nothing, I have a little plastic dibber just like this that is hiding somewhere in amongst all my planting stuff over and over and it's the most used bit of kit ever for making holes and lifting seedlings carefully to re-pot ... and you just can't say no to more Kale and Chard seeds can you.

Then before I knew it as soon as I got home I was signing up for a full years subscription.  Well it would have been foolish not to ..... with thirty six pounds worth of seeds free for a £36 years subscription,  I'm either getting the magazine totally free of charge or a heck of a lot of free food for next year.  Did I mention that I have more than enough seeds for this year without any shopping.

But sometimes you just HAVE to treat yourself don't you  ;-)

  1. Damn! I wish you'd treated yourself before I bought all my seeds! Enjoy your treat :)

  2. Bet you can't wait to get started

  3. and why not, growing things from seed is so exciting, I never get bored of it, be it food or flowers :)

  4. Wish I had enough dosh to get the subscription too, it's my favourite of the gardening magazines!
    I've got a few of these free sets too and got another one the other day as part of a set of a mini sieve, dibber scooper set and a little seed sower thingy from Poundland. That store has a lot of good gear for the gardener!
    The scooper end I use to pick up tiny seed beads when doing embroidery or jewellery making.
    Enjoy your magazine subscription Sue, I know you will get every pennys' worth from it!

  5. 36 pounds of seeds? That is a a lot of seeds! I am in seed planting mode daily at this point. Started some of my seedlings a few weeks back and am planting more now. Such a fun time of year!

  6. I love magazines but they can be an expensive habit. This one at least is value for money. Is it monthly?

  7. I am a magazine junkie, and would have signed up as well, it's a win, win situation.

  8. May all of your seeds sprout wonderfully and enjoy the magazine!

  9. ooh I'll keep an eye out for this!
