Seed Update: May

It’s May here in the Bay Area (well, okay – it’s May everywhere, yes; I know), and it feels more like… I don’t know? Sometimes August, sometimes December? Climate change – who can tell. Our fig tree seems to think it’s September, that’s for sure.

No one can deny, though, that we’re definitely still in a drought. And yet! Thanks to the contents of our trusty rain barrel, we’ve managed to have great luck on our vegetables so far this season.

All our babies in our planter beds are killin’ it, but the real fun has been watching the copious amount of seeds we cleared out of our kitchen seed bank take off.

Here’s a quick seed status report…

Most of our little starts have now graduated to the outdoors; a few of the overachievers have already gone to new homes.

Cherry tomatoes coming up super strong and fast.

Sooo much broccoli.

First attempt at edamame and so far so good!

Meanwhile, back in the kitchen... Late-blooming broccoli and tons of peppers are starting to take over.

…and a reminder that we’re open for business, if you’re in the neighborhood and looking for a few starts for your own garden. Best of all – we’re GIVING THEM AWAY! Just too much veggie goodness this year for 3675 to handle.

    I have never been able to grow anything! I am impressed that you have raised your seed babies up to be little adolescent sprouts with the promise of a long and lovely future in your backyard! There is something about “returning to the earth” that just sounds so wonderful and makes so much sense. Maybe it is an ancient urge we all have, but we suppress it to sit in front of a stinkin’ computer screen instead. (I speak for myself here.) And I think it is wonderful that you share your bounty with neighbors. Perhaps they will bring you nice things to grow and eat in return. What a great way to spread the goodness! I want come see it all just as soon as I possibly can. Have fun!
