Forget Snowpocalypse! Seed Exchanges Are a Balm to Gardeners in Winter

I’m not really big on driving anymore.  It stems from driving back and forth to Champaign for school.  So it’s a pretty big deal that my first seed exchange required a trek out to Des Plaines yesterday.

Whoops, I promised no fancy gardening terms without explanation.  A seed exchange is just that.  You bring seeds, only the legal kind, and you take seeds.  It’s kind of cool because most gardeners have more than they want.  I’ve been struggling because in addition to my shared community garden plots, I still haven’t decided what I want to plant at our home garden.  I figured this seed exchange would at least get me to think about it.
