Just a little update......

We will be mailing out envelopes by early January. I know this might strike some as too late for planting, but that is far from the case. Many seeds planted in the fall seem to succumb to late frosts, both in the Fall and in the Spring. One of our seed experts has recommended planting as 'late' as February! The seeds only really need two weeks of cold and wet to stratify (either in the fridge or outside), and that is enough for them to sprout. The tender seed sprout is quite vulnerable, so the sooner you can time its appearance to comfortable non-frosty Spring temps the better! It does not need to endure a Fall through Winter experience, quite the opposite.

Thank you so much for your patience. This year it is just one of us stuffing the hundreds of envelopes we received this year. It was just too difficult to align our schedules to crank them out like we usually do, so one of us will be doing it over the next few weeks with what time he has in the evenings.

Happy Holidays to all, and to all a Happy New Year! Much luck with your plantings, and as always, thank you for helping the Monarchs and their pollinator friends.
