Except that, as I said, these are the WRONG seeds, they didn't conform to what Russian Netted is supposed to look like (no net, and they were yellow, not brown, and had stripes.) They tasted fine, but so do a lot of other cukes I could grow. And next year the whole area will be devoted to the burr gherkins, so there wouldn't be the room for them anyway.I would order seeds NOW. I put in 2 small orders to Seeds'NSuch bc they have been offering good deals this Fall.
As you know most seeds have a good germination rate after 1-2 years, and packages for $1.00 each are a bargain, from a reputable source.
After my yearly October party, I intend to inventory and buy ALL the seeds I need for 2024.
I HAVE already ordered the only thing I KNEW I needed for next year I didn't have (white currant tomato seed). Beyond that, everything I plan is either already here, the product of searches I can't predict, or things I don't know about yet. I'm sure this IS a good time to stock up on seeds, but stocking up before I've worked out what I'm actually going to plant is how I wound up with several pounds worth of tomato seeds in the first place!
The only other thing I'm contemplating putting in I'd have to order is a pair of Nanking cherry trees , and I'm holding off on ordering them until the spring because the spring is when I'm supposed to plant them, and I'll probably only get one shot at this (I wanted white fruited cherries, and those are a lot harder to find than red ones.)
