Our First-ever Seed Swap!
Close to 30 Farmers and their relations got together this past weekend at Blake’s abode on the marsh …to trade stories, swap seed packets…and…of course…eat!
The dining room table was loaded with platters of goodies…artichoke dip and taco dip and antipasto…and deviled eggs and stuffed celery…and eggplant…and Danish meatballs….and chicken wings! And the “bar” was stocked with dozens of BYOB additions … more than enough to keep the conversations and the social mingling going full steam!
Farmers brought packets of seeds they were willing to hand out to whomever wanted them…the coffee table was packed with envelopes of Dill, Marigold, Bush Beans, Lettuce, Beets, Tomatoes and lots more! Many folks took one of these little package-of-promise home with them… with visions of a surplus bounty in their imaginings!
If you missed this gathering…don’t despair…we’ll do it again for sure! It was a fun event…a good time was had by all… and we’re sure to add another one to the calendar in time for the fall season!
Thanks, Blake for hosting! (1/28/13)
