Not that I really NEED seeds this year. I'm not even placing an order. Shocking, I know! But there are only a few things that I need this year and I've selected things from Seed Savers Exchange. Lucky for me that since they are a "local" company I can get their seeds at several local stores- including the grocery store we generally shop at.
But today I was totally surprised and delighted and picked up a few seeds that I wasn't really planning on. You see, V had some things to pick up at the local home store (Menards, if you're curious) so he picked me up after work to go along. They have their seed displays all set up. The usual Burpee's stuff and some other cheap, unknown origin seeds. But imagine my delight at turning around and seeing two display racks from Seeds of Change organics. Woot! So, I picked up some butternut squash seeds (one of my 'new things' for the year- I'm planning to do 3 sisters plantings) and a couple of other packets (some sunflowers and some bok choy). And I had a delightful conversation with an elderly couple selecting seeds for their garden.
All in all, a good trip for me. It really brightened my day. Now I just need to get some Black Aztec corn and I'm all set for the year.
So, for my Three Sisters I'm doing Black Aztec corn, Scarlet Runner beans and Butternut squash. I've always wanted to do this but for some reason haven't. This is the year!
