First Seedling Germinated!



A little acorn squash was the first to germinate of this years seedlings. I saved the seed from a squash we recieved from our weekly vegetable basket from Les Jardins de la Resistence, a community supported agriculture (CSA) coop.

If your interested in getting a basket from them, check their website. If you want to know about other CSA’s that deliver in your area, check out Equiterre’s website, where they maintain a network map of CSAs in Quebec.

Seed-saving  is an important practice that (when combined with composting) helps to close a loop in our food system; from production, harvesting, distribution, consumption, and back to production while retaining soil fertility.
