Wednesday Lagniappe: Two Stories in the News: Seed Lending, Compost

Two recent stories caught my eye (and ear) and I want to share them with you. The first is about an effort in a Colorado public library to lend seeds.  Yes, you got it: you get the seeds, grow the plants, collecct more seeds and return some to the library.  Probably some kinks to work out (like with biennial and open-pollinated plants).  The link is via NPR at: Public library lends seeds!

The next article is about the push in various municipalities to begin curbside compostabe pickup.  It was in the Washington Post.  Imagine a world where compostable trash is picked up twice a week, and non-compostable trash every 2 weeks?

Happy garden reading!
