Seeds arrived!

As I said a bit earlier, Dan and I ordered our garden seeds from rareseeds.com, a website that sells a wide variety of heirloom seeds. We carefully read descriptions, compared original climates to our own midwestern one (many were born in the late 1800’s in France and Italy), and labored over which would grow the best together according to the companionship gardening book “Carrots Love Tomatoes” by Louise Riotte.

And today, after much anticipation, our babies were finally delivered.
