'Tis the season to be seeding....

Dear Friends,

I just wanted to send out a quick reminder that it is time to plan and get seeds for your 2013 growing season. 
We are fortunate on southern Vancouver Island to have great growing conditions and several Seedy Saturday (and one Seedy Sunday) options.

These dates are advertised on the website called “Seeds of Diversity” ( ). If you know of any more southern Vancouver Island Seedy Saturdays, not listed here, please let me know and I will update this page.

If you've never attended a Seedy Saturday – I hope you try it out this year. So many growers all in one place – with all of their proven seeds, starters and experience – it is an unparalleled opportunity.

I'll be at the Qualicum Beach Seedy Saturday this weekend - hope to see you there!

Happy growing!
