Gardeners are a generous lot, we love sharing plants and seeds with other gardeners. There’s nothing better than passing along a favorite plant for someone else to grow.
I’ve met many interesting gardeners through the years and have received many wonderful garden gifts. Just this past month I was gifted some crosnes from a generous blog reader (thanks so much). I planted these little beauties and can’t to try some next year.
Last week, a local gardener stopped by to pick up some perennial leeks I offered to give him earlier in the week. As any gardener, he couldn’t come empty handed and brought some ‘Jeminez’ pole beans and some ‘Sirviata’ wheat. Today, another blog reader and friend is bringing me some of her father in law’s heirloom pole beans that he’s been saving.
There’s nothing better than receiving gifts like this from the garden. One of these days I hope to have more seeds to share with all of you.
