I thought people here might enjoy it, so here it is: annapolisseeds.blogspot.com It's very small at the moment but I'm adding to it as I write articles for my column with the local paper and with general farm events. Hopefully I'll have a lot more to write about once spring arrives and life returns to the land!

I've bumped into this blog before I think and found it interesting. Thanks for posting a link.
Garden is a clearing in the woods grading from shallow, rocky soil supporting a maple bush to a pine forest planted on sandy soil and a clay bottomland with spruce and tamarack. For more garden antics, check out the blog:
flowerweaver: Just got my stick it email on the one landrace I requested. It was probably a boilerplate, but very condescending nonetheless. It even told me I wouldn't want a landrace when clearly I told them that's what I'm working on.

zeedman: The return email I received from them several years ago had what I thought was a humorous sender - something like uidnobody - but they sent the seeds I requested.

awildseedvt: Huh, mine's just a copy of my order. It does look quite good, I'm hoping the lack of comments is a good sign. I did order 15 different selections, I'm hoping that's not too much lol

awildseedvt: Hey the order came today, but for some reason they only sent me ONE pack. Not complaining at all, but I would have appreciated a note/Something saying why only one pack was honored.

awildseedvt: I'm stoked to now have "Kazakhstan" Silphium perfoliatum - "Originally from the U.S. Plant sunflower-like, to 3m. Flowers yellow. Used for silage on an experimental basis."

oxbowfarm: GRIN is not necessarily a unified system. Each curator will interpret their distribution mandate differently, so amateur breeders may be welcome by some curators and not by others. It might be worth it to email the curator directly and discuss it.

nicollas: yeah in my last command to GRIN i've received the seeds but not the cuttings (well i'm in europe so that might count)
