Seeding time!!

We needed to get these seeds going weeks ago. Oh well! So, this is our high -tech greenhouse/ header house! We're getting all the plants started that we plan on selling at seedy Saturday in Calgary, on March 17. Its located at the Hillhurst Sunnyside community centre. Look for us there!! We will be selling potted herbs and advertising our grain and meat shares a little bit. Many other great vendors will also be there with seeds, plants etc.

We're also starting some annuals that take forever to grow, that we'll also be using for fresh herb sales in the summer. These slow growing annuals include rosemary and lavender.

What are your favorite herbs to grow or use? One of mine is basil. Basil tastes SO amazing and is so good in pretty much anything! Not to mention pesto sauce is one of my fav things to eat. You can expect to find lots of different kinds of basil at Seedy Saturday including Lettuce Leaf, Sweet, Dark Opal, Thai....mmmm!! We will have all the kitchen basics like thyme, oregano, sage, chives available. And, we'll have some special things too like Summer Savoury, Lovage, Soup Celery. So much to look forward too! Yep, believe it or not it's time to start dreaming what's going to go in your garden or on your windowsill :)

Till Seedy Saturday,look forward to seeing you there!
