Our seeds came in the mail today. We ordered from Seed Savers. Seed Savers is a really cool farm in Decorah, Iowa, that grows and sells heirloom seeds. It also has a historic orchard, visitor center, museum, heirloom animals, trails, concerts, all sorts of fun!
Burgess buttercup squash
jalapeño traveler strain
purple dark opal basil
early scarlet globe radish
five-color silverbeet chard
mini red bell peppers
Detroit dark red beets
cornfield pumpkin squash
We also have our perennial beds of strawberries, asparagus, rhubarb, and we’re planting three new grape vines.
I received a gift copy of Stella Natura: Working With Cosmic Rhythms. I am excited to incorporate Biodynamic rhythems to our planting and harvesting.
We have never been “good” gardeners. I try to get out to the garden everyday. I figure everything I garden is something I don’t mow!

I love springtime! I wish I had a sunny yard…I'm so limited in what I can grow b/c of all the shade! Sounds like you're going to have a good haul this year!
I was lazy and didn't do any gardening last year… this year though, I want to get some stuff out there!
I love the new pic on your header! 🙂
The picture is from the book The Story of the Root Children by Sibylle Von Olfers:
I plan to read my ancient copy at our next Waldorf play group.
Awesome! Have you been to Decorah? I have never been there but keep thinking we will take a trip out there one of these days…
how perfect, I was JUST thinking a few days ago that I *need* to get our garden planned (last year was pretty lame bc we got such a late start. I was apparently pre-occupied with a new gorgeous baby or some such nonsense) 😉 My goal this week is to get it planned/ordered. annnd convince my husband to turn part of the backyard into more garden? 🙂
