I have my seeds for the year, do you?
They are offering their second seed sale of the season: Order by Earth Day (April 22), and pick up your seeds at the Farmers Market on April 30th.
In March, I helped the CTF gals sort all of the seed orders. I had garden envy as I was packing up seeds for folks I am sure had 5 times the garden space that I do. And, because we are in the early stages of house shopping, I restrained myself from buying late season crops.
No matter, I did get some seeds for my little patch of soil:
- Shiraz Beets
- Touchstone Gold Beets
- Bull’s Blood Beets
- Maestro Shelling Peas
(Call me crazy for beets – I wanted a variety of colors. Maybe you will get pickled beets for Christmas this year!)
And for my mom’s garden:
- Echinacea Purpurea
- German Chamomile
- Garden Anarchy Sunflower Mix
What about all the lettuce, chard, spinach, and carrots I plan to grow?
Last year I worked at the Food Bank Farm all summer and for each day that I went, I earned a $5 coupon to the Food Co-op. So when the Uprising Organics seeds were on sale, I bought most of my seeds for this year. I think they should still germinate.
