Heirloom Seed Savers Exchange at Cleveland Public Library

There may be snow on it's way but gardening season is right around the corner. The minis and I recently found out about the heirloom seed savers exchange happening at a few Cleveland public library branches. 

We decided to go to the main branch to check it out. 

A seed saver is the practice of saving seeds or other reproductive material (e.g. tubers) from vegetables, grain, herbs, and flowers for use from year to year for annuals and nuts, tree fruits, and berries for perennials and trees. A seed exchange is when saved seeds are given to a person in exchange for seeds that will come from the fruit and vegetables after the growing season is over. 

When we got to the library we were given a book with different heirloom fruits, veggies, and flowers. Each month a person can "check out" 5 packets of seeds for free. In return they must promise to bring back seeds from their crop. The kids and I got some beans, beets, cukes, tomatoes, and lettuce.

Spring is Here, For My Hair That Is

blonde2 Louisiana & I show off my new locks.  I usually wait until late spring to go blonde but couldn't do it this year.  The winter has been endless.   Already I feel more alive.  Like summer is around the corner.  Hugs & Kisses to my superb stylist Birdman for spending 6 hours on a widow's hair.  That's right kids, 6 effing hours.  And 1 bloody mary.

 

Congratulations go out to LISA H who won the Conant Park Mysteries Book Giveaway.  Please email me your mailing address and I will get them shipped out!!  Now onto a little fun.  For all you Greenhouse Tavern lovers, a game of I spy.  Get it right and I'll make out with you.  But only if your are a chef.  And I'm married to you.  Sorry Symon:(
