The Seed Inventory

I thought that before I start seeds I should take a little bit of inventory as to what I have, what I want to eat this summer, and how much of it I actually want to grow.  With my new apartment I have a drastic reduction in the amount of space I have therefore I am either going to need to buy more of what I eat at a farmers' market, CSA, or Kroger or find an alternative planting spot to my current residence.  

So lets start with my seed inventory:

California Poppy (Orange); American Seed
Impatiens (mixed color); American SeedMarigold; Harvested from Wilmington College Community Garden 2010

Almost all of these seeds I was lucky enough to have given to me while I worked with Grow Food, Grow Hope in Wilmington.  Of course that also makes them quite a few months old and have been through a move, a new apartment, and stored in my basement so I'm not sure how viable many of them are going to be.  But I'm certainly ready to find out!  

What is everyone looking to grow this season?
