Seedy Saturdays and New Retailers...

It's a melty, early spring day and the starlings are singing, the maples are flowing and you can't help but think of new seeds to try this season. I've got a pretty long list of new varieties planned already... lots of peppers and interesting new root crops (Oka and Chinese Artichokes) to give just a small preview.

It's also the time of year to head out to your nearest Seedy Saturday to buy and exchange seeds with other growers. There are more than ever this year in Nova Scotia and across Canada, check out Seeds of Diversity for the complete list. I just got back from Bridgewater which was a big hit and we'll be at the following around the Maritimes this spring:

Fredericton, March 12
Musquodoboit Harbour, March 27
Halifax, April 2
Wolfville, April 9
Truro, to be posted...
Middleton, April 29

I've also got a bunch of new retailers to announce! More places than ever will have Annapolis Seeds this spring... so far we're in: Den Haan's Garden World in Middleton, Home Hardware in Middleton, Fulton's General Store in Lunenburg, Helping Nature Heal in Bridgewater and The Biscuit Eater in Mahone Bay. More coming soon, I'll keep the list updated!
