What's not to like about the annual seed swap? Busy people mark tiny packets, open and shake a few to share, close and move on to the next.
A big donation of flower seeds this year, courtesy of Debbie's work with a children's garden. I took a few each of the full-southern exposure lovers and will plant them in our window boxes, along with a couple dozen herbs. Kitchen garden beautification.
Did I mention there was food? We ate everything but Debbie's homemade BBQ sauce. Seed sorting is hard work.
Debbie also brought a plastic gallon milk jug with cuts made to show me how she uses them for winter sowing (more from her in an upcoming post).
Mmmm--some lovely new additions
I stripped some agretti seeds off their stems to share. We let them go to seed last fall and then dry out, at which point I stuffed whole stems into a paper bag and stored in a dry area.
Don't let anyone tell you saving seed is difficult. That pretty much describes it.
