A Seedy Haul

After the seed swap yesterday (and the copious miles biked), I was exhausted and starving. I hadn't really eaten before starting my mostly uphill trek, and at the exchange, even though I brought half of the baked goods, I didn't feel right nomming down on everything there. I ended up having one of everything (more, still, than I felt comfortable taking because of the number of people), but I might have passed out otherwise.

With that setup, here's the list of seed packets I staggered home with (and I thought I was being reasonable in picking so few seeds to take home?):

Key: Bold items were picked up in the three individual rounds of the seed exchange. Underlined items were picked up during the free-for-all. Items acquired through after-exchange exchanging are both bold and underlined. Unaltered items were included in the goodie bag from registration.

Items are alphabetized by their genus and then by their English name. The item presentation is "English name/description (Genus species) [Seed company if known]."

* The Plant List says that this is the accepted name for Shasta daisies, not Leucanthemum x superbum as written pretty much everywhere else.
+ The Plant List says that this is the accepted name, instead of Habranthus texanus written on the little orange envelope.

Can you tell I intend on making my own kimchi from veggies grown in my own garden, wherever that might be? A gardener I met at the exchange may have space he would like to share with me--I look forward to chatting with him about it!
