• ANNUAL SEED EXCHANGE •

We've had a seed exchange in the past that was very popular, so let's do it again! Once the holidays are over, the garden catalogs start filling the mailbox ~ much to our delight! It's so hard to choose which veggies, flowers and fruits to plant this year and the x's and circles proliferate until you just know you have to cut down and get real. Many of us also save seeds from the previous growing season and have enough to share. 

The beauty of the seed exchange is that you can share your extras with others ~ I mean, not many of us want to plant 20 pumpkin plants, right? ~ and you'll get more variety than you could in buying everything individually. Let's share the surplus in trade for something else to try growing.

I'll have baggies, markers and stickers available. Please bring any special instructions for unusual varieties. I'll have some handouts and info on successful seed starting and items I've found to be useful.

Appetizers & beverages provided.

    I am so disappointed that I couldn't make it. I would really like some Jerusalem Artichokes, if anyone has any please let me now. Something got in & killed 1 off my chickens last night. Hurt my back putting railroad ties along the bottom of the fencing. Thanks, Chris [masked]

    Delayed in Seattle by my own sickness (the projectile vomit kind). I'm sure a slapstick comedy could be made by my morning. Hope to join you, another time.

    Jerusalem Artichokes. Iron plant, can't kill it & it spreads joyfully. There are on-line sources that claim to be Improved, less knobby etc. Also produces biomass for compost& young sprouts can be fodder.

    Has anyone grown Jeresalum Artichoke? I can't spell the name of that city. It is native to Kansas is rich in starch if I remember right.

    • GAYLE N.

      I want to grow sun chokes, same as Jerusalem artichokes, just different name. This year will be the year to try them!

    I have lots of seed to share after having lived on an urban farm near Portland, Oregon for the past 3 1/2 years. I am moving to Lacey in February. I can't wait to meet other like-minded people who love growing their own food. Sounds fun!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
