    Hi! My name is Jen, I live in Rotterdam but my garden is in a small town near Leiden at my mom's place. I'm into seedsaving, and actually got into gardening because a local seed saving organisation handed out free seeds. Couldn't let them go to waste ;) That was 4 years ago. I've started with...
