COVID-19 Help for India - buy seeds!
I've mentioned Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds as a great place to order online. Now's an even better time, as they are having a fundraiser, now through Monday, May 3rd, all online seed purchase proceeds will go towards emergency COVID related resources in India. India is having a surge in COVID-19 cases which are overwhelming the health system there.
I certainly didn't need more seeds, but
1 - great cause
2- great seeds (and free shipping in North America)
I ordered Chocolate Daisy, a night-blooming perennial that smells like chocolate. Dara Flowering Carrot, a Queen Anne's Lace variety. I checked first to make sure it was non-toxic to dogs. White borage to add to my blue borage. And, Sugar Bon Snap Peas, for fall. I don't usually plant for fall, but my spring peas failed this year. I have about 5 plants, out of dozens in two beds, of two varieties.
Seeds are viable for several years, so order ahead for fall or even next spring! I recommend the Dragon Tongue Bush Beans!
