I feel passionately about only buying organic heritage seeds (heirloom is the American word) meaning they are non hybrids and you can save the seeds yourself for your next years garden. (Unless you have geese and they ate all your bean crop)
I've gone back to scarlet runner beans for this year, a crop Brent's dad always had. A new lettuce seed to try Devil's ear - I normally have drunken woman fringed head just because I think the names are so funny... Chocolate pepper - we are looking forward to these growing. An old favourite was brought again - Port Albert Cucumber..
Having kids with allergies and chronic illness has sent me on a path over the years learning about how to grow nutrient dense food, and now I'm studying to be a naturopath.. I'm totally loving my current assignment about macronutrients. One of the questions was to pick 3 amino acids to write about - of course I had to pick Lysine as it is an amino acid that cannot be generated in the human body and must be acquired through diet. It is also Sheldon’s favourite amino acid off The Big Bang Theory, possibly due to his germ phobia. In case you are wondering lysine can be found in a variety of foods, eggs, dairy and meat. Vegan sources of lysine are beans, peas, lentils, and avocado
I'm driving myself crazy with excitement checking daily
- okay twice a day to see if the first bloom is out on the lilac
Queen of the Night tulip has nearly finished blooming - just the right timing as the runner beans will be going in here.
