To see things in the seed, that is genius.
If that were the case, and it very well might be, I just bought myself an Einstein supply.
It's been a few years since I've gardened. The nomad life-style sort of precludes it. We've been more of hunter-gatherers.
But now that we've begun to set roots, I have begun to miss getting my hands dirty.
I've been fortunate that a good friend has been willing to share land with me to grow.
And in my typical fashion, I went a little overboard. It started with an order to Pepper Joe's, " Nominated for 'Worlds most Influential Pepper Grower'
Home of the World Champion HOTTEST PEPPERS
including the Ghost Pepper, Butch T Trinidad Scorpion, Moruga Pepper and NEW
Worlds Hottest the Carolina Reaper pepper AKA HP22B Pepper. "
And it wasn't a little order. I got the Habanero package, the jalepeno packet, "World Nuclear Energy" and the "Volcano in a Box" pack.

Skye cooked up some sweet potato fries for the potluck. We obviously had many more seeds than we needed, so it was a perfect opportunity to give a little back and share our bounty of seeds.
The presentation on seed-saving was very informative. But even better for me was learning about the various local farm/food networks. And of course, we did get a goodly amount of interesting seeds.
All in all a wonderful event.
We'll be starting a goodly amount of seedlings in the apartment.
Cindy's already more than a little nervous about the place becoming a farm.
Hmmm. It's probably more than warranted.
I'll expand on that in the future.
Not in Kansas(or California) Anymore
The growing season in Los Angeles where I grew up and lived for the better art of my life is practically year round. There is really no "last day of frost".
It's going to be an interesting learning process being in this new world of the South.
