AJC 2011 Week 6 - Itinerary: Simple Starts: I Decided...to Become a Defiant Seed Saver!

I Decided ..to become a Defiant Seed Saver

I Decided ..to become a Defiant Seed Saver
(Charlene would be so proud!)

It all started innocently enough (don't they always?) with last year's Seedy Saturday at a local community hall and once inside the door..well it was a slippery slope..So many wonderful heirloom seeds to choose from and all GMO FREE. I came home with 17th Century Italian Heirloom Fava Beans, Blue Jay Snap Beans (rare Canadian variety) and a brown paper bag containing 8 Mason Bee cocoons (which promptly went into the fridge).
While wandering around from table to table, I came across Seeds of Diversity Canda and joined up. Today I have successfully put out into that tiny greenhouse (the one in the corner guarded by the broken shovel) last summer's harvest of fava beans, blue jay beans and sunflowers. The Mason bee population increased and I have close to around 30 cocoons asleep in my fridge awaiting spring bloom.
The background is today's macro shot of my blooming Diane Witch Hazel. I had purchased it last Fall immediately upon hearing that it bloomed in February (my birthday month).
Kits used: Tangie Baxter: AJC11 Parcel 01, Spring Field Notes Paper 3, Paper 6, Elements 3, Dictionary Cuts Parcel 06 Tape.

  1. I just got my seeds in yesterday from Seed Savers Exchange. I can't wait to see how they grow!


Here under the Sheltering Palm, may you find parchment, fresh quill and ink. Scrawl a note and leave it there for me to find. Thank you and a Blessed Journey to you also.
