I’ve not yet ordered seeds. Many of my seeds are now two years old – some three – and probably no longer viable. I had poor germination with the spinach and chard, for instance, already in September of last year. Sorting through all that now. Feels bad, throwing seeds away…

I’m putting together a business plan for Robin Hill Gardens. Just a dream-on-as-if-I-suddenly-had-the-money plan. It’s good fun.

  1. Fedco has Good King Henry? I downloaded a copy of their catalog, but pdf isn’t an inspiring way to look at a seed catalog. Your list looks good. I’m still ordering too. The bees look great! What a relief, eh? Also, I hope your novel goes well.

  2. I downloaded a copy of the Fedco tree catalog and found it. I’m still working on plant and seed orders, and have to admit I’m wondering where I’m going to put it all!

    Great news about your future chickens!
