Wow, I'm excited. I got an email today that made my day! As great as it is to be "published" in Patti's newsletter every month, this seems more real... I got a post over on my Build-As-You-Grow-Bin page from a reporter with the Seattle Times. Yep, the paper that ran the article that started it all in 2005 is doing a follow-up of sorts. They're writing about the 20-30% increase in seed sales this year, focusing on Greg Lutovsky's seed farm over in Ellensburg. They would like to use my page as an example of someone using his design in the local area! How cool is that?
Anyway, I may very well have to buy new seed from him this year. I checked my seed boxes that I saved from last fall, and unfortunately all my seed potatoes have sprouted, along with the ones left in the storage boxes. Seems they don't last quite as long as I'd like, even in the proper conditions. I sure would like to make potato soup out of the remainder of my eating potatoes, if they're edible. Any ideas folks?
Well, on the seedling front, three of my four Red Sails lettuces sprouted today, so they went up stairs. And one of my mustard greens is considering poking it's head out of the dirt. I'll wait til tomorrow to see if others join it. Oh how I look forward to checking my seedlings when I get home after a long, stressful day at work. Man I'm glad gardening season is upon us. I don't know how I would survive without it.
Guess that's it for tonight. Busy weekend planned. Take care all, and enjoy your garden!
