While voting for District 39's Participatory Budget Initiative, which could help fund some outstanding gardens in the neighborhood, I entered a raffle organized by Claudia Joseph and the Hudson Valley Seed Library.
And guess what - I won! The booty includes:
- Kaleidoscope Carrots
- Champion Collards
- Sparkler Radish
- Ultimate Salad Bowl
- Black Mountain Watermelon
- Variegated Nasturtium
- Poracicaba Broccoli
- Organic Seed Production and Saving, published by the Northeast Farming Association
- And Lablab purpureus seeds
While some of the plants won't fit into this year's rotation, I know I can easily squeeze in some broccoli, collards, and more. All of the raffle proceeds will go towards building a new compost system at the Old Stone House.
How exciting! I'll plant the Kaleidoscope carrots right away.
