“they tried to bury us but forgot we were seeds”. this saying has been attributed to the zapatista’s but the origin is open to interpretation. (and i know the spanish on the door is not entirely correct). what is not open to interpretation is people, like seeds, food, customs - are all migrants. migration happens - with animals, birds and yes, even people. this is one of our barn doors and invariably everyone who comes to visit gets their picture taken here. it’s our ethos - seeds, resilience - and hope. food is family. if your in the us, pretty much the only indigenous foods are blueberries and persimmons so good luck with that nationalistic food pride. to separate families, in any name or any law or reason, is immoral. art by @freyrichardsart#southold#nobullshit#seedsavers#weareseeds

The marigolds just started blooming and i love the color of this variety.the seeds came from my cousin who lives in colorado. after my dad died she sent me a bunch of seeds from her garden. that kind gesture touched my heart! even separated by many miles she knew what would cheer me. now, every time these marigolds bloom i think of my dad and my cousins love and kindness to me...not a bad way to start the day!
