Seedy Sunday – the haul!

The first few shots are from the seed swap area alone… amazing!  What an incredible selection… and all free!  I was volunteering in the swap room for 2 hours, so I feel like I did my time and got amply paid.

All the swap seed together:

Tomatoes only:

Other vegetable seed:

No pictures of the packets of pea and bean seed, but there were quite a few.

And then these are my “paid” purchases:  a couple of garlics, some zucchini seed… plus some neat knit-and-leather gardening gloves in return for a donation to the Perth-Dupont Community Garden.  That’s where the broken garlics (Music) below came from.  The whole garlic is from Cubits Organics.

… and here’s Naomi Rivka, helping me plant it all!  Well, (l-r) Clematis virginiana, white boneset, nodding wild onion, blue false indigo and bluestem goldenrod.  All native species, though I’m not sure I will actually end up planting them all out.  The boneset does not look lovely, I must say.

The blue false indigo, actually, didn’t get planted, because the seeds need scarifying.  Lacking sandpaper or any kind of file to rough them up with, I followed the package directions and am currently soaking them in hot water overnight (while letting the hot water cool off).  I will hopefully plant them in the morning.

Oh – I bought some of Gayla Trail’s clever little garden buttons, too… but I’m too tired to take a picture of them now, and one of them (I {heart} dirt) is already missing.  Waah!  :-(((

All in all, a most tiring but successful day!

Are Jews an "underrepresented community" in children’s publishing?

I applied for a writing award yesterday. I'm not going to get it, but that's not what I wanted to share with you. Here's what I wanted to share. This box:   I stared at this box for a long, long time. And then I decided not to check it. Even though I believe people like me truly are underrepresented, we probably wouldn’t fit the definition in other people's minds. Why? Well, because we're European. Because we are white. Because as everybody knows, Jews control the media. (do we???) If anything, some people say, Jews are over -represented in publishing. And yet. Some definitions are careful not to include people like me. Like this random definition from the State of California which defines underrepresented for some very specific business purposes as: "an individual who self-identifies as Black, African American, Hispanic, Latino, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, Native Hawaiian, or Alaska Native, or who self-identi
