January 25th National Seed Swap Day

If you happen to have a lot of seeds laying around the house that you do not intend to plant, today is your day to trade them for ones you might use. Now I am not sure how many of us have seeds laying around the house that we haven’t used. But if you do, this is the day for you. You can gather up your seeds and go trade them for ones you want! The day was created by Kathy Jentz from the Washington Garden Magazine. It is always the last Saturday of January which began on January 26th, 2006 at the 1st Annual Washington Garden Magazine Seed Exchange. So, if you have been hording seeds that you don’t intend to use, gather them up and go o your local Seed Exchange and have a ball!

How to celebrate – Find someone to trade your extra seeds with. Try and remember why you got those seeds you don’t want in the first place.Plant something, though you might want to wait for warmer weather.
