New Seeds for the Seed Lending Library at Steele!

We have expanded our seed offerings at the Steele Memorial Library for this growing season.

As usual, we have fast growing lettuce, carrots, squash, and assorted herbs. But this year we have included a variety of pumpkins, from mini decorative types to big white carve-able ones! And, they are ALL edible! Yes, all! Also new are parsnips, okra, mustard greens, and leeks.

This year, we have expanded our flower collection! We have many fancy sunflowers, lavender, coneflowers, poppies, and hollyhocks, to name a few.

How do I borrow seeds, you ask?

If you are interested in borrowing seeds, you will need a library card. Come by and borrow up to 3 packs of seeds per day. There are no overdue fines, we just ask that you bring back some seeds. The basic idea is that you plant the seeds, let some go to seed, then return some of these next generation seeds for others to borrow. The seeds you save and return are a gift to your community. We hope you learn much, experience the joy of gardening, and enjoy the fruits of your labor! If you are unable to get viable seeds from your plant, you can bring back a pack of seeds (only open-pollinated or heirloom – no hybrid).

Happy planting!
