Garden + Wild Garden Seed of Philomath, OR

Good ol' Philomath
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.

"Victoria" rhubarb
cress, seeds from Keely
radish, seeds Sara had
garlic, saved cloves from garlic I got from Ventura

Dragon's Tongue, I think
looks good, didn't taste like much
Purple Osaka mustard, old saved seed
potato, I think Dutch Yellow, don't have my notes with me

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....
