The Perfect Way to Start the New Year!

I just got the news - the online version of the 2011 Annapolis Valley Heritage Seeds catalogue has been released!! There will also be a print version in the coming weeks. I've been waiting patiently (ok, semi-impatiently!) for the past few weeks to see what our amazing Owen Bridge has come up with for this coming season.. I'm very interested in his extensive list of greens. I love arugula, Outredgeous lettuce and Black Seeded Simpson, but there are so many more to try!

We did a photo shoot for 'the book' back in October at Annapolis Seeds and it was such a fantastic place. I loved the lettuce gardens - I just wish I had been there when they were at their peak to see the patchwork of colours and textures.. Some of the photos of Owen's seeds, his seed saving methods and his veggies should be appearing in the book when it finally hits stores in late 2011. I just finished the sub-edit of the first few chapters and now it's back at the publishers again.

Anyhow.. if you're as seed crazy as I am, you'll want to check out

Happy New Year!

PS - this is a photo of Owen and I from this past summer when he joined me on The Weekend Gardener - fun fun!
