I may have accidentally bought a few more packets of seed (oops!) and I did fondle the garlic knowing that I couldn't take that home with me - very unfortunate, as there are quite a few garlic booths here with many varieties I've never had the opportunity to try.
It rained rather hard yesterday, but I was able to get out and tour around before that happened.. here are some photos I snapped in Ira's booth!
(Sidenote - Ira also told me that Owen Bridge, a well known seed saving expert here in Nova Scotia and owner of Annapolis Seeds had visited her for a week this past season as he travelled across North America on a knowledge and seed saving quest. Can't wait to hear all about that when Owen returns home.)
|Ira and I!|
|Some of the seed racks in the Southern|
Exposure Seed Exchange booth. Tempting!
|Drool.. garlic.. wish I could take it over the border!|
|Look at the wonderful and aromatic varieties|
|They were also testing tomatoes - Cherokee Purple!!|
|I love big rainbow - the one on the right. Next year I have|
to grow it again.
|Check out the small fruits on Matt's Wild Cherry - far left|
|This was is new to me.. very flavourful..|
|Folks were crowding around to taste. Had|
to work fast to get a people-free photo!
|Love this gorgeous, uniquely shaped variety|
|I also didn't plant this one this year.. it is|
a favourite though, so I'll add it to my
