Buying veggie seeds in Hawaii

I bought some seeds in Hawaii. Brenda at Gardeningbren Blog, suggested there might be varieties of lettuce and spinach that tolerate heat better, so they may do better during our summer. The other day I bought some Red Salad Bowl lettuce for winter growing in Canada actually. Then today I got a Mesclun mix, a Bib or Limestone lettuce (no idea what it is but the picture looks great), Spinach Bloomsdale, some really cool looking red and white beans called Frijol, Huerto Pinto and a package of cosmos seeds. I saw a picture of them last night and thought...I should grow those again...they are so pretty. So even on vacation, I can't help but grab a few seeds.

Hello Erin, I am KL - another gardening addict. Welcome to Gardening Addict Anonymous :-). I am big time controlling myself from buying anything. The money factor is helping me there.

You sound as if you are having a wonderful vacation! The beans sound really interesting. Think I will try growing more beans to dry this interested in the cranberry one. Seed orders not all sent yet!! Love cosmos!

There is nothing that fills me with more joy then planning and buys seed for the garden. Except gardening itself of course.
