“Faith sees a beautiful blossom in a bulb, a lovely garden in a seed, and a giant oak in an acorn.”
-William Arthur Ward
Here at Chiot’s Run the seed ordering time has begun. I always wait until after the New Year. I sit down with my seed collection, plan out what I want to grow, look through my seeds and order what I need. I also order a few things that look interesting to me. I enjoy growing my own food, but I also enjoy growing new and interesting things. I have the luxury of not needing to grow everything I eat, which allows me the wonder of trying new things. Sometimes they turn out beautifully like the strawberry popcorn I grew a few years ago, sometimes I’m dissappointed, like the quinoa I tried last year, hopefully the broom corn I grow this year will be fun. Part of the joy of growing for me is the hope that it brings each winter when I sit down and order seeds.
Do you grow from seed? What do you enjoy most about it?
