Let the Seeding Begin! Seedy Sunday is Coming!

The first seeds are here! I love this time of year. This is the first (and probably smallest) of many packages to arrive. It's the time of the year when we check the mailbox with almost fanatical fervour because we don't want anything to freeze! First thing to be seeded, probably this weekend, will be a flat of lettuce for us to eat, and maybe share with The Hens. Then the priority is peppers, tomatoes, herbs and some of the squash and melons that require a long season.

For those of you in the Brandon area this Sunday, February 14th is Seedy Sunday! Starting at noon at the West End Community Centre at 249 23rd Street a variety of seeds, including some from great local farms, will be available. Seeds of Diversity, Heritage Harvest Seeds, Prairie Garden Seeds and Room to Grow will all be there. Then, at 6:00 PM, a dinner of organic bison chili and bread is available for $6. A social follows with live music from dinner until 1:00 AM. All proceeds go to support the East End Community Garden Project - a most worthwhile cause! A great chance to get some great seed that you know will grow here, get some great advice from the seed saver, have some awesome organic chili and support a really great community project. Hope to see you there!
