…..Things in the Stewardship department have been slowing down a little lately, most of the spring weeds are taken care of and fall work isn’t quite here yet. This slow down has afforded Lance and I to do some seed collection on some species that we had located during the spring. Timing is everything for seed collection, and we hit it dead on the nose when we were able to to collect two pounds of bulk Blue Eyed Grass seed. Today we collected seed from a native gerainium as well as some beaked sedge. These small batches of seed allow us to grow out and offer genetically local, native plants. These were not grown in a green house some where, collected from god knows where. These seeds represent the genetics of remaining plant population from this area, and are extremely valuable. It takes more work than just picking up the phone and ordering some seed or plants, but the end result is definitely worth it.
