Ah, Spring. Victoria’s Seedy Saturday was heaving again this year. I didn’t make it to any of the talks, and was too preoccupied to make thorough visits to all the stands, but once again the interest in seeds – both flower and vegetable – was there in (ahem) spades.
The seed swap was as popular as ever. Bring something to trade, or put a loonie down and take your pick of local seeds:
Gabe and I were there representing the Gorge-Tillicum Urban Farmers (GTUF) on the CR-FAIR table, and were pleased to find so much interest in neighbourhood food security.. and meet a couple of new members too.
Linda Geggie’s “Test Your Seed Smarts” was hugely popular. A few sniffed they didn’t need to see the back of the card to know what the seeds were, but most who stopped found the self-test highly entertaining,
particularly the younger gardeners.
And many more besides.
Can’t believe it’s over.
Actually, it’s not: many more Seedy Saturdays (and Sundays) still to come across the country.
