30 Ways to Save £1-- Day 21 + A Long list about seeds

Number 21 of the 30 ways to save £1 list that earned me £30 back in April was
21. Every time you come home put any 5p in a jar. They are so small they get lost easily, you won't miss them from your purse and they soon turn into £1.
Actually there are not many 5ps around when I came to look. Nobody has put any through the letterbox for eggs for ages. I wonder if they are going to be withdrawn as they are such fiddly little things.

I tried to do a list of seeds, those grown this year and planned for next year. Did all tidy columns  on Word, copied it over to blog and it came out as one long list ! I have no idea how to make columns on the blog, so this is it. Any ideas?
