POTATO POWER: Super excited to grow and harvest #potatoes with my little 5 year old dude. There is something absolutely magical and mystical in witnessing the soil give birth to a root harvest, like alchemy at work. Root crops are grounding! Try it and delight you and your seeds. ;)

GREEN VELVET: Peppermint Geranium, I love you! Amazing, easy groundcover, great for flavoring jams and preserves, baking, infusions,  and my favorite, just for the pure pleasure of inhaling that scent and feeling it’s soft velvet leaves. Great for kids! Makes all cut flowers look amazing!! #oldschool
