Seed time

Seed time, originally uploaded by risabee2007.
Mostly greens, beets and corn. Short season, as we anticipate cold late-spring ground again. Many seeds we have on hand, some saved. With potatoes and fruit trees and sunchokes and such, we are well supplied. And this year for some of our staples -- tomatoes and the like -- we'll revert back to locally-grown starts, due to anticipated time constraints.

Yes, this catalog is from Maine and we are in Oregon. Our local seedsman is fabulous but expensive, and Fedco is a cooperative, avoids feeding the Monsanto/GMO monster, and works closely with Seed Savers Exchange. So, sure, this is a plug -- for the business model they represent: honest and responsible.
