Annual Vegetables, Florida Natives, Sustainable

Natives, Edibles, and Pollinator-Favorites

I am loving the new monthly seed swap at Shell’s in Tampa. Today, I donated a tray of Cranberry Hibiscus and succulents. In return, I left with a new infusion of natives, edibles, and pollinator-favorites.

Here’s a sampling:

More on each of these new additions to come. But the weather is glorious and I’m headed outside to enjoy it.

Seed Swap: Tampa-Loving Tomatoes, Peppers, and Beans

The sticky end of summer has me doing anything but working outdoors. I finally tackled a project from the to-do list: Prep seeds for swapping.

I’ve bundled up seeds from my best producers and I’m ready to trade:

  • Carmen Sweet Italian peppers
  • Mild Jalapeno peppers (That’s what the label said. I would strike the word mild. These peppers have a serious bite to them.)
  • Cherokee Wax beans
  • Royalty Purple Bush beans
  • Cherokee Purple Heirloom tomatoes
  • Golden Peach Heirloom tomatoes
  • Yellow Pear cherry tomatoes

I’m headed to the Community Seed Swap at Shell’s Feed and Supply Store on Nebraska Avenue this Saturday, but if anyone is interested in arranging a trade prior, I’d love to hear from you. What do you need? What do you have to share?
