My grandfather gave me his seed closet when he died... it used to be a apothecary case.
It's a wooden box with 200 little wooden drawers... 10 by 20.
It took me awhile to learn seeds... like how to harvest your own carrot seeds, lettuce seeds, etc.
I have weird things like Egyptian walking onions from my wife's side of the family from Oklahoma in the 1890's.
They self-propagate... so it's the same plant as 130 years ago.
It's an onion that is a shallot that is kinda a garlic... I use it a lot in cooking.
The Whole Seed catalog is my garden porn.
What an amazing TREASURE!!!! I'd be giddy with such a gift. I've been saving some seeds as well but not doing great at storing them lol. Hopefully I will have the time and get better at it! This year I have a very small crop but still going to have fun. Tomatoes, Cucumbers, blackberries, a fig, cherry and orange trees! But they're just starting - still so excited!
