Seed you next year

Over at Green Zone for the first time in weeks to collect some seeds for next year. Firehouse 13 is thinking about building a bigger garden along the parking lot and perhaps taking over the lawn. Good riddance, grass! I figured I’d give them a headstart by saving them some seeds from Green Zone.

If you’re local, go over to Firehouse 13 and help yourself to some seeds: (clockwise from top left) dill, morning glories, bachelor’s button, and for those of you who are farsighted, scarlet runner beans!!!  Just wait until the morning glory husks and/or runner bean pods look brown and dry. Go ahead and snack too. Pick all the basil and make yourself some pesto. Pick all the kale and cook it up. Go for it! Frost is coming soon.

Saving seeds is kind of like sending a letter to the future. Today, I filled some seed envelopes for Firehouse 13 and sealed them shut. In just a couple months, the days will start getting longer. And in a couple months after that, it will be time to open the envelopes and plant some dill, morning glories, bachelor’s button, and scarlet runner beans.

Dear future,

Wish you were here.

xoxo, Green Zone
