Wild saturday night planned shelling radish seeds by the fire pit. pondering burying a cast iron p*t of baked beans next to the fire for a little slow-cooking happiness. a good book is patiently waiting next to me. contentment meter is reading pretty good right now 😊 hope yours is as well 💚
To say that this is tedious would be an understatement! the seeds are tiny and buried deep in the flesh. 👓 but i've had so many requests for pepino seeds that i'm determined to save some. plus i get to eat the fruit so it's not a total bummer. 😉💚🌱 #pepinogold#seedsaving#seedsavers#selfsufficiency#homesteading
It’s snowing like crazy outside and i’m craving spring, so i placated myself by re-organizing my seeds into glass storage tubes. it’s very hipster looking, but hopefully better than my old method of crumpling up the envelopes and shoving them into a giant beer glass.... 😬
Saving *night scented stock/evening stock* seed:::
just shared some videos on my stories with a bit of info about this divinely scented biennial cottage garden plant, who is actually a relative of the brassica family (cousin to broccoli, cabbage etc).
i originally received this plant from a revered herbalist elder as it was one of her favourites and now after growing her i completely understand why...
so please do have a lookie if you'd like to learn a little more or if you're keen to get your hands on some of these beauties, spreading biodiversity and getting her growing in your garden to delight your senses and impress your friends during evening dinner parties ;)
Next sunday we will be in middle lake sk set up at the seedy sunday event. humboldt folks take note, middle lake is just a short drive away if you are in need of seeds!
