Hudson Valley Seed Library does a particularly careful and beautiful job at seed packets and I wanted to share. They are an online only (no catalogue = no dead trees) seed library based in New York's Hudson River Valley. They have the normal runofthemill heritage, non-GMO seed collections available for purchase. What stands out is their Art Packs. They commission a bunch of artists each year to create new packs for various seeds. They are a bit pricier than the normal seeds. An art pack for dino kale goes for $3.75 while the regular unembellished pack goes for $2.75. I thought they'd make awful sweet presents for friends with gardens this summer.
Happy Monday. Nick and I are going all the wee way up to Burlington today to scavenge bus parts for the 1977 vw we are having slowly restored (mainly rust but also including a proper back seat so we can strap a car seat in for the bébé). I know it's pitiable but I've been looking very forward to this trip to the big city all week long.
Amendment!!!! this post that I read over a year ago slipped into my subconscious and I am shamed to say I didn't even realize or acknowledge that I had essentially copied the photos, one for one. Thank you Sophie for introducing me to the Hudson Valley Seed Library and my apologies for being so thick about where I find my inspiration.
