garden gift idea: sowing seeds full of smiles
WEDNESDAY’S SNOW IS TURNING MY HILLY WORLD TO ICE; the day was so short as to be unforgivable; the forecast calls for 11 degrees F tonight, the second such low in a row. No matter, though, because in my imagination, at least, I’m having grilled tomatoes with a wildly handsome red fox, thanks to Hudson Valley Seed Library’s killer seed packets, like the one above. Got anybody who could use a smile in their holiday stocking? Take a peek at a few more:
You heard me get all excited about Hudson Valley Seed Library when I met them at a lecture months back, and now there’s a whole other set of “art packs,” as they call these artist-designed creations. The four colorful rounded tabs (the blue parts on the packet above) fold behind the cover image, and the whole little origami-like thing holds a glassine envelope of heirloom seeds. You can purchase one, or a whole set of 16. Charming.
