Dwindling Seed Banks

I think that it was William Butler Yeats (or maybe, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle) who wrote of the coming of the faeries; remember those dainty creatures that bless plants and gardens with abundance? With the dwindling of our seed varieties, I wonder where the plant devas have gone. Are they slipping off to Olympus with the other dwindled gods? Mercury is hawking flowers for FTD and I think I saw Apollo in an old episode of Star Trek.

In order to sustain ourselves, we need a wide variety of diverse kinds of plants. So, think about planting and saving some seeds. Join or create a seedbank for heirloom seeds. Invite the faeries and devas into your yard. They look so cute when they are perched on the big mushrooms.

You can find out more about saving seeds that are in danger by visiting the following link:

If you are hungry for some local food, visit The Hubbell Farm and make an order.
