Planting and caring for seeds often takes patience and perseverance but the rewards are great. In woods and abandoned lots free seeds are abundantly available to gather. Some of the seeds may germinate others may not but the reward of seeing new life in seedlings is always worth the effort. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.

Here's an unlikely combination of dill and lantana. The lantana will bloom all summer long and the pot is close to the kitchen so I can harvest fresh dill. These are on the West side of our home.
The farmer's market ramp and plant day yesterday was a success. I had ramp potatoes and ramp pesto; visited with many returning vendors, and sold lots of pottery. Someone who works in the John Campbell School gift shop encouraged me to send in an application to be juried there and to enter their shows. It sure is nice when folks go out of their way to let me know they appreciate my pottery. Next Saturday is the Strawberry Festival so I'll be busy all week long getting ready.
