Hello fellow gardeners. If you’re coming from today’s Globe and Mail article, the full story about the tobacco gardener is here.
If you’d like seeds, I’ve got loads (I’m not going to grow them) and am happy to pass them on in the spirit they were given to me. Please send a self addressed stamped envelop to my P.O. Box and I’ll mail a few to you. Sorry everyone. I meant the tobacco seeds only. Have been inundated with seed requests (of all sorts) and have no more left to give.
If you’d like a peek at my gardens, there are a few more recent images and stories here.
Tomorrow is the Seeds of Diversity 25th Anniversary Celebration. Seeds of Diversity is Canada’s national heritage seed conservation effort, specifically focused on preserving and promoting non-hybrid plants of significance to this vast country. I am extremely proud (and consequently a little nervous) to be speaking as the keynote in front of a group of gardeners I hold in very high regard. The event will also include seed buying tables (last call for seed starting season!) and lunch is included in the fee. I believe tickets are still available.
