This Santiam Food Alliance program will open with a talk by Lisa Almarode, of Fairweather Farm, who will share her strategies for starting cool-season crops—cabbages, onions, and carrots, for example—from seed. At about 7:00 p.m., those of us with seeds or other plant materials to share will lay them out on tables. Vegetable seeds will be the main emphasis, but attendees are welcome to bring flower seeds and other kinds, and even well-wrapped tubers and growing plants. The seeds don’t have to be homegrown; they can be extras from commercial packets. All seeds should be identified by species and variety and the year of harvest. Bring envelopes, tape, and a pen so you’ll know later what you have brought home with you. And don’t worry if you have nothing to contribute. We always have plenty of seeds. During the swap, Oregon State University Extension Master Gardeners and members of the Lebanon Garden Club will be on hand to answer questions about planting and saving seeds and other gardening matters. There will be a swap table for seed and plant catalogs as well. Our cosponsors for Seedy Tuesday are the Lebanon Garden Club, OSU Extension Master Gardeners, and the Lebanon Public Library.
