The weather is turning, and I hope for good! So glad to be able to work outside in short sleeves yesterday...felt good! Everyone seems to be busy ordering seed, which is keeping me busy too! Now is a good time for me to go through my "stash" of seed, saved or bought, do some organizing, and perhaps throw out anything over five years old. If it's older than that, chances are (for most things) it won't be good...depends on the seed! (Did you know onion seed is one that won't keep more than a year? After that they are not much good at germinating.) I also know that if I keep seed more than five years, I tend to get overwhelmed, as that is my main addiction, saving and/or buying seeds! Guess you could call me a Seed Collector......! Everyone enjoy their week! -deb

Hello all, and HAPPY NEW YEAR! I'm glad to have entered another new year with localharvest.org. The greenhouse is keeping all the baby herbs warm, and before we know it spring will be here again. Until then....I got a new seed catalog yesterday and am spending my time "daydreaming" about growing new types of basil and such! Perhaps i'll order some, and get it going in the greenhouse. Can't wait for farmer's market in May, I miss everyone! And, i'm still shelling pecans, too. I believe in doing two things at once (at least) and i can listen to music or on-tape books and shell pecans at the same time! Got to keep those hands busy! Dreaming up new herbal tea blends, too...can't wait to savor them, hot or cold! Truly i have been blessed beyond belief, and i can't wait to see what 2009 has in store for me! I'm off now, can't sit still too long.....! Have a great day!
