What are We Growing? Here, at the Sacred Garden, Clients? – SG Journal

A new Friend on Facebook asked me what seeds I’m growing, plants etc.. so far in my garden. And I guess the group Sacred Garden… Hmm.. I’m not sure if I want to get into all that I’m doing at my clients’ gardens too. But here goes:

outside:

3/22 – planted Black Cumin from Seeds of Change- strong healing properties. Also scattered Sacred Tobacco seeds. in my garden.

3/27 – planted peas (two kinds, chinese peas and edible peapods), spinach, chard, kale, broccoli (starts bought at garden center)… soft rain came in that evening through the next day and today. nice. Need to plant red lettuce starts. my garden

3/22 – potatoes in potato condo. jas’s garden

Inside in seed trays – whoosh, lots (some we will plant directly in ground.. I’m running out of time here on my Sunday am to sort through all of these to separate them out)- this is not a complete, complete list:

Tomatoes:
Yellow Pear
Green – they ripen up as green, from a blog buddy of Jas’s named Mike.

Plus several award winning tomato seeds from Gary Ibsen’s TomatoFest farm, that are award winning from several chef competitions, and written up in Smithsonian Magazine last summer (aug issue): Paul Robeson, Clint Eastwood Rowdy Red, etc

Hope to get into ground soon at my place since my beds are ready:

Carrots (Asian/Daucus carota var sativus)
Tyree Spinach
Mesclun Greens
Detroit Supreme Beets
Golden Beets

Herbs – some are for smudge that we make. (note – that link is clinical sounding.. it’s not just “in theory” that smudge works… there is a spiritual resonance to the herbs when burned that combines with our intention to clear out our spiritual body and space of negative energy that works.. I can vouch for that. there is more to this world than the physical that we see… but that’s a whole different discussion.)   Other herbs are culinary:
Peppermint
Chives
Echinacea Purple
Feverfew
Milk Thistle
Oregano
Thyme
Basil
Chamomile
Milk Thistle
sweetgrass
lavender
jasmine
wormwood
Flower – Calendula
Parsley
Thyme (old seeds)
Garlic Chives
Regular Chives

White ceremonial sage

Flowers to deter pests:

marigolds… there will be more.

Eventually Outside:
Sunflowers (Mixed colors)
