seed swappin time

Today I finally sat down and gathered all my seeds that have been scattered here there and everywhere and sorted through them. I purged a few old ones that have not germinated well, we didn't like or that had fallen out of the packets and into the bottom of my containers. They will become seed balls or planted throughout the property in super secret locations. I found five packets that had been labeled as melon. Unfortunately what sort of melon is in them is anybody's guess as the permanent marker I used was not so permanent. This year I will be sure and put papers inside the packets with the name of what is in them instead of having to play a guessing game. I do know they are either, thai golden round, piel de sapo, tigger or cantaloupe all of which are quite tasty.

Anywho, here is the list of seed that I have plenty of. All of them are heirloom even if I do not have them labeled with a particular name. Some seeds I have had long enough that I no longer remember the name. If anyone would like to trade some send me an email.

  3. I would love to talk to you about an issue that I feel is a hot topic in environmental news. I have written an article that I think your readers would be interested in seeing on your blog.

    Encouraging grocery shoppers to branch out from their usual selections and to join the local food movement, will help us conserve the forgotten species, and create a more sustainable agricultural system.
