Seed collections

Just wondering if I'm the only who has a nice hefty seed collection. This is I think everything I have...I think it is. Oh wait, I don't think I put the tomato seeds I saved from last year, but I didn't know what their name was, I just labelled them by color(red/green 'striped', gold, purple, etc)

Lots of seeds.
I like provider string beans along with Italian flat beans.

Tell me about it...I don't even have enough room to plant them all...and I just bought 5 more seed packets today...Zebrina flowers, Tonda Di Parigi carrots, a lettuce collection(Black Seeded Simpson, Bibb, Prize Head, Grand Rapids), Purple Vienna Kohlrabi, and Climbing/Malabar Spinach. I am so insane...

Looks like a nice assortment of seeds you mention, and I notice you mention saving seeds...yet you include hybrids in your list. Saved seeds from hybrids will not produce what their parents produced.
I have over five hundred open-pollinated, heirloom, whatever-ever-you-wanna-call-em varieties in subzero storage and add more each year.
Hybrids are great to pick up at year-end clearance and throw into cold storage just for the production benefits. Last winter I bought 750 (all the store had) packets of assorted veg seeds for.....ta-da.....a penny/packet. They went straight to silca gel then to the freezer. Rainy day emergencys and all that.

I highly recommend this book for your seed saving activities.

Yeah most of the hybrids were from a nursery's booth last year at farmer's market...they had a couple big baskets of free seed packets and since it was free I grabbed what I could...I don't really trust hybrids cause I wonder if they're hybrids as in cross-bred or hybrids as in GMO type stuff. I've looked through the Seed Savers catalog so many times, I can recognize the same varieties in the seed aisles at stores here and grab 'em...the Zebrina flowers I got today were one of them. Oh and I forgot to mention I have way too many german chamomile seeds as well. They have naturalized on our property and become just about a weed basically, and I got alot of seed from them last year to give away as a free gift for buying from our farmer's market booth this year...if anyone has any amish pie pumpkin or jelly melon cucumber/kiwano horned melon, whatever you want to call it seeds I'd be happy to trade some german chamomile seeds or parris island lettuce seeds, I have plenty of them.
