On Saturday we attended Seedy Saturday! This is where we’ve been happily getting our seeds for our vegetable garden for the past three springs.
This year there were seed vendors, give aways, door prizes, seed swaps and a lot of families and like-minded garden enthusiasts.
The best part about the day is the seed swap, where you can exchange and/or pick-up free seeds. I find it a little hard not to be greedy or over ambitious with garden plans when there’s such a variety of free seeds right in front of you -it really is like being a kid in a candy store.
The most unique find of the day were these purple Jerusalem artichoke tubers. I’m interested to see how these will look like once they’re in the ground and blooming.
There was a sweet stack of vintage garden catalogues and books that you could give a small donation for and take home for further perusal.
Seedy Saturday is put on by the Hamilton Community Garden Network. This year it was held at Ryerson United Church at 842 Main St. east.
