By the way…

We have sold out of some things at the shows.  So if you are still wanting to order, email me first at smileyo@xplornet.ca and we will communicate first to see what I still have.  Only have a very few potatoes left.  You are ok if you ordered before the shows, I still have your orders off to the side.  I am excited to be trying a whack more potato kinds this year, some fingerlings and landrace kinds in particular.  If you have kinds to share, let me know, we will do a trade if I do not have them already.  I am looking for one we used to have that my Uncle Nick brought from the Ukraine.  IT was very large and flattish with light purple skin and dry white flesh.  It was his perogy potato and somehow it did not get planted one year.  So if you know of one like that, let’s chat.

You can still order seeds up until about the end of April, so keep in touch,

Successful Completion

Hi everyone;

Thanks to all who came by our tables at the Seedy Events this year and said hi and picked up some things or signed our petition.  Most people do not know that Monsanto is trying to sneak that bill into the legislation in Canada.  Your support and interest is great.  You are right to be shocked that they are attempting to stop farmers from selling seed and saving and sharing across Canada.  So again, thank you for supporting small farmers in Canada.  In case you did not get a chance to sign it, you can go to http://www.nfu.ca and read all about it and join the fight there.

We had many people come by and ask important questions about who we are and where we are and we did our best to answer you all, with all the volume at our tables.  Thanks to my wonderful daughters Yara and Meaghan for their help and support.  I could not do what I do without them.  Will post a photo when I get a chance.

And mostly thanks to all of you who help support seed saving and sharing in Alberta and across the world.  It is encouraging when so many of you care to grow open-pollinated seeds.

Keep on growing,

Thanks,

Denise
