We had fun swapping seeds and tasting tomatoes from different gardens. It’s all in the soil! Ok, amount of sunlight also plays a role…
It is that time of the year to share our garden’s bounty. We are going to have our semi annual Seed Exchange on the 17th of Septembert, from 2 till 4pm at the usual Cannery Park in Sunnyvale. As it is harvest time, we will be sampling food from our gardens – mostly heirloom tomatoes. Please bring along any of your favourite varieties for tasting. Sharing is the theme!
What did you grow this Summer? What are you planting now? Come and share your gardening story. I will have the usual lemonade and simple munchies, plus tomatoes from my garden.
We are going to be at the City of Cupertino’s Earth Day event as it is our tradition. The event is held on 22nd of April, Saturday, from 11am till 3pm at the city plaza (by Library and City Hall).
We will be selling heirloom tomato plants and also have various starts for swapping with fellow gardeners. Come and say Hi!
Here is a list of tomatoes on hand and how many we currently have:
|Aunt Ruby’s German Green||1|
|Black & Brown Boar||1|
|Cuor di Bue||4|
|Japanese Black Trifelle||8|
|Matt’s Wild Cherry||4|

All plants are in 4 inch pots and we are selling them for $3.50 each.
We will also have a Champion Biochar Stove on display! Don’t miss the opportunity to check it out in person. We will be selling it at the event at a discount.
Our semi annual seed exchange brought together some veteran gardeners and newbies alike. You can swap seeds for heirloom or simply open pollinated plants – those that will stay true to its type, once you save seeds. Almost all of the yummy tomato varieties we grow and swap are open pollinated.
We all had fun swapping seeds and gardening advice, and stories.
We provide coin envelopes for seed sharing and light snacks. Everyone brings seeds, or at least appetite to learn and try growing some tasty food in their gardens. Hope you join us next time!
