Garden + Wild Garden Seed of Philomath, OR
Took some pics in the garden yesterday. Some of my seeds from Wild Garden Seed out of Philomath have come up. When I lived in San Diego we did a batch of home brew and the home brew store sold hops from a farm in Philomath. Philomath has like 3,000 people, so that 2 of it's farms have had an effect on my life is pretty cool. Of course when I was little lots of farms there had an effect on me, but you get the point. Anyway. I ordered 16 seed packets from them-- some kales: red ursa, white russian, lacianto rainbow; 2 mustards: dragon tongue indian, japonica mix; some herbs: sacred basil, great green chervil, santo cilantro, korean mint; veggies: purple peacock broccoli, rutabaga, garden sorrel; summer greens: huauzontle, aurora orach, triple purple orach, brightest brilliant rainbow quinoa.
Hmmm, now that I've labeled the pics I realize there was only 1 pic of a Wild Garden Seed plant. C'est la vie. Last week I planted the 2 mustards, the 3 kales, the rutabaga, chervil, sorrel; there are signs of life from the mustards and the rutabaga. Yesterday I started the broc, basil, and mint in 6-packs. So more pics in the near future....
