A Moment of Vanity

My winter lettuce seeds arrived from Tamar Organics on Saturday. I planted some out immediately, but that’s not what I wanted to blog about.

I have a confession. One of vanity.

I’m not big into cars or fancy clothes. But boxes and packaging, now these really get me going.

So you can imagine my excitement when my seeds packets looked like this:

All refined and brown paper bags smooth. A real touch of class compared to your bog-standard packets.

I love going out seed shopping, but this changes everything. Come Spring, will I suddenly be poring over a website, rather than sorting through racks at the garden centre?

I have no idea if these seeds are any better than the other ones in the shops. I don’t know if they’re greater value for money. At the moment though, I love them.

They even smell nice.
