Our seed stockpile keeps growing!
This time it’s courtesy of my sister-in-law, who gave us 16 packs from Seeds of Change (yes, the White House’s choice) of things we wouldn’t have bought, and I mean this in the nicest possible way. She came up with two groups: Asian greens and plants that attracts beneficial insects. So we now have seeds for Texas hummingbird sage (red!), medicinal borage (cool-looking!), butterfly weed (orange!) and tall fernleaf fiddlenecks (great name!). The greens include white icicle heirloom radishes, komatsuna (brassica rapa, in Latin, and not something I know from my local Asian store) and edible chrysanthemums (a zesty, edible green for an unusual addition to salads, canned goods, or freshly prepared vegetable dishes, according to Seeds of Change.)
The Brit has ruled out a sixth raised bed. That mean We’re (I’m) going to have become more efficient with our space.
