Oh no!!! How could this be? A gardening setback already?
I got back into town and found a letter from Seed Savers Exchange. Sadly, there has been a USDA recall on some seeds I ordered from them. Of course they were the ones I was super psyched about–Job’s Tears (as evidenced by the use of all caps in that post). Basically a flower that produces a bead you can then craft with, combining my gardening with crafting for a life cycle of fun. Well, not this year it seems.
However, they did kindly offer to give five other seed packets as replacements so I am taking them up on this. I started some seeds with the new moon in February and they are doing well at this point. Even a mini chocolate bell pepper is pushing up through the soil! I give a cheer because last spring my pepper seeds did not sprout at all.
First canned pumpkin, now flower seeds. What am I, a recall magnet?
