Was the seed I sent to you old? I didn't think so, I bought it that year and sent it right away. I actually don't do that much running around. The seed store is in Petaluma where I buy my chicken feed so no problem at all to get you some.Bean seed has held up well for me, @Collector . Still, 8 years ... I don't know if I have gone that long . Five year old tomato seed has wrecked some of my springtime fun. Sure, I think every seed ultimately came up but they were so far behind that I think I just gave up on the seedlings.
It might have been the age of the seed for my Verde da Taglio chard. I get a little exotic with choices and end up with bare spots. I put some fertilizer on this week for the 2 types of chard that I've got going but that only helps a little with filling in available ground.
Rather than have Mary run all over for that Italian chard, I just might have a good excuse and order from this company: Restoration Seed. They say it's "naturalized" in the Bay Area! Maybe @ninnymary didn't need to do that running! And, then there is the Lucullus chard. Pretty ... and "best eating chard you can grow" ..? Maybe, I will become a chard aficionado, after all!
