Whilst cleaning up my very untidy desk I came across a few packets of vegetable seeds (as you do). I'm not quite sure where I got them from but I must have kept them because I loved the design so much. They're for the Little Veggie Patch Co based in Melbourne and the packaging was designed by Melbourne-born (but now Ade...
