National Seed Swap Day

I'll have to admit that National Seed Swap Day caught me off-guard. I don't have a lot of seeds to swap today, but neither do I see any announcements of local events for swapping seeds today.

The only seeds I have an abundance of are calendula seeds. I would be happy to share those seeds year round with anyone local. I also collected a few kale seeds last year, but I will need to use them all myself.

Maybe the thing to do would be to suggest a neighborhood seed and plant swap for one of these weekends coming up. Now that my neighborhood has an email list, it might not be too difficult to get the word out. I can help a lot of people get these lovely calendula flowers into their yards. Once you have calendula flowers, you  will never run out of them. The photo below was taken on January 26 -- in the middle of winter. See more photos of the calendula I've grown in various stages of their lives, and learn how I eat it.
