Search Going to Seed
I've been growing seed since 2001. It started with a couple seed heads in a few envelopes; now, I have bins full. I've had to start a farm (la ferme coopérative Tourne-Sol) with some friends to grow the stuff.
There's a soft spot in my heart for Brassica rapas, hot peppers and anything crossed up. But I'll grow anything to seed at least once.
