It’s that time of year…

I’m still in theory waiting for Summer.  While in holding out mode a friend pointed out some Maple leaves that had turned, as in bright red.  I’m not ready for this, I want a few more tomatoes, cucumbers and the like and yet I found myself at The Seed Bank in Petaluma accumulating a variety of seeds to get in the ground this month.  I know the planting will drift right on into September as I still think August should mostly be about harvesting.  In the meantime there is always watering and weeding.

The Seed Bank is the West Coast home, literally an old bank building of Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds out of Mansfield, Missouri.  Their catalog is visually inspiring but there is something to being able to fondle  those little packets of promise.  I will be planting all of the above.
