Happy that many of you have sent your address 😍🥰.

To answer many of you:

Yes it’s free, will be a mixture of vegetables, herbs and flowers.

Yes, I have plenty to share.

At the end summer I go on road trips with my husband to the country and buy seeds from little stores or people who couldn’t sell them.

I love cooking and feeding others and by doing this, is my way to do so.

Ye Olde Seed Garden

I was wondering if this sounds good… I keep rescuing and buying seeds when stores selling season is over to give away to all you gardeners (freeseeds4penpals@gmail.com )

Kids want to stamp the homemade envelopes they making. 😆 so I need to order a stamp…

Garden Update 2018

While I wish I had more to say, basically nothing besides my ichiban eggplants are ready for harvesting yet (eggplants are tasty though). The tomatoes are getting close, same with my peppers. My raspberry bush has been steadily making berries, though I wish I had a couple because one on its second year doesn’t really make enough.

I did have some plant losses sadly. My yellow squash and zucchini plants got hit by a combo of sweltering heat and squash bugs. With them dying, it left my pumpkin plant defenseless to the squash bugs, so I got more squash and cucumber this time to replace them so my pumpkin can be protected. Two of my tomato plants, better boy variety, weren’t producing at all, which my suspicion is the sudden high heat was either impairing pollen production or fruit set. Either way, I didn’t want to waste space with tomato plants not producing at all for another season, so I got another Goliath variety since the one I planted earlier this season is doing great.

I’m really hoping my cantaloupe and pumpkin can pull through the heat. It’s definitely slowed their growth, and it didn’t help I had to replant both almost early June because something stole the seedlings back in May…I went out one morning and they were completely gone, not even withered or decayed. I had the same issue with sunflower seedlings too, but the second go of those has taken off thankfully. My cherry tomato plant had a weird hiatus of growth from May till now which was odd, but it still is producing tomatoes, and now is getting taller and wider. Not sure why that happened, it’s the first time I’ve had a tomato plant do that.

Well, that’s what’s happening with my garden lately. Hopefully soon I’ll have pictures to post of tasty tomatoes and peppers.
