seed savers



Planting seeds. Time for planting seeds of planting a garden. Deep winter here, and currently shrouded by snow, it’s laughable to conjure a garden. But now the seed catalogs rush in, seducing and igniting.

I keep relatively epic gardens here. So much food, hundreds of perennials. These packets are last year’s, having been tucked into the fridge; they’ll be fine for the upcoming season. Some of my eternal favorites: bush beans, French thyme, baby lettuce mix, nasturtium.

Grow a few things. That’s all. I haven’t full sun anywhere on the property, and we can still eat endlessly during the summer. Be humbled, the garden is that venue.
