Mini Update On The Seed Bank
It’s been a little quiet here unfortunately, but it’s not without just cause. The past few weeks have been a frenzy.
But, I am very pleased to say, the seed bank has found its new home in our new city: Victoria, BC. Most importantly, that new home not only includes housing for the seeds in the bank, but also new land which will be transformed from grass to garden space for the growing season in 2011. It was one of my biggest concerns with the upcoming relocation that space would be the difficult thing to find, but fortunately it’s worked out to my favour. There’s a lot of work to be done with the new land for next year, and in about three weeks we’ll be leaving the Kootenays for the warm, and fabulously long, growing season of the west coast.
Isolation for this years grow-outs is also in full swing, and it’s just a matter of time before all the veggies ripen and are harvested. Stay tuned to the current seeds for distribution list to see what will be available in fall 2010/winter 2011.
If it’s a little quiet around here the next few weeks, never fear, we’re just in the throws of moving. We’ll be back with updates and more information soon!
