seedy saturday toronto

setting up the urbantomato booth at the beautiful whychwood barns.
clearly, i have already had a lot of coffee . . .

setting out my buttons . . . take a deep breathe &
prepare to spread my seed to the Torontonians

this is by far the most beautiful venue i ever get to be in for seed exchanges
lots of natural light

Thanks so much to everyone who came out & bought seeds, traded with me, told me about their gardens & laughed at my buttons . . . . it was a great day

by the time the sun set started to cast this luscious light,
it was getting close to closing time

my last sale was a lady who wanted a 'ho' button to give to her mother in law . . . i love seedy saturdays.

i will post photos of all the great seeds i got to exchange soon . . .
and of course many more seedy saturdays to go

Toronto Seedy Saturday

Well this is it, this week-end officially kicks off the Seed Exchange Season.
The Toronto event is always just as busy as it is fun . .. . it is at the beautiful
Artscape Wychwood Barns & I am excited . . . photos & updates to come

pack it up. pack it in. let me begin

yes, that is a house of pain reference . . .
i start with envelopes already labelled for varieties
then i count out 25 seeds (or more) for each envelope
fill the envelopes
and seal with label . . . .
so get up off your seat & jump around. jump around . .

now it's time to spread my seed

now that all the seeds are packaged up in their little envelope homes . . .

it's time to spread my seed

More new seed Packets & re-makes of old ones

So I have spent the last several weeks lost in seed packaging land . . . .

these are some of the new packs that I will have at upcoming seed exchanges (see right bar - Where to find urbantomato)

Packing seeds in Feb. makes me believe in . . . . wait for it . . . . spring . . . .
