I've oinked to the limit! ☺ What a great seed swap!!!

A BIT ABOUT MY GARDEN
Gardening here in northeast Texas has been a new experience every year, with varied weather challenges and changes I never know what is going to flourish or fail. I enjoy growing unusual plants, herbs and edibles and often seem to find myself pushing my planting zone 7b. On the outskirts there are various wildflowers growing, some in full sun, some shaded and inbetween. I welcome all wildflowers and find they attract the most pollinators and beneficial insects and birds.

The gardens and all of my homegrown seed offerings are grown organically and I try to stick with open pollinated varieties that are non-GMO!

MY 2014 SEED SOWING JOURNAL AND NOTES SECTION
Seeds waiting to be ready or are available:

Epazote (Chenopodium ambrosioides) just need to get out and collect some.
