Oh, how funny: I was just at Native Seeds/SEARCH picking out my spring seeds this afternoon, and then this appeared on my friends list.

Teparies might be tricky outside of the desert--they're so drought tolerant, it might actually be possible to overwater the plants just with rainfall. Oh, but Native Seeds is trying to collect information on how the crops perform region-to-region. So if anybody DOES manage to grow them outside of the southwest, I think Native Seeds would appreciate the feedback.

(Also, the Native Seeds cold bean salad recipe goes from unremarkable to mind-alteringly good if you can get your hands on real white tepary beans.)

Oh so glad I found your blog....I love these images you posted here...don`t know what to call them..vegetable ladies??...please help where are they from??


Hi Chamara,
I know the prints are French...I couldn't make out the name of the artist however! But I found them online here:

I was hoping today to have some time to research them a little more...I could have sworn I saw a version of these Flower Ladies (the one on the left is a Tulip and the one on the right is a Water Lily) on the Bibliodyssey Blog...a link which you can find to the right under Journals and Blogs.

Oh how I wish I could grow things.

Seed catalogs have been one of my great comfort reads since I was a kid. My mother and I used to pore over them. The names are like fireworks.
