In the 20 years in Pocatello, I don't remember ever seeing a hummingbird.

Yeah, my daughter wonders why I still garden when they grow everything I need. It's what you said, Daniel, and more. I just enjoy going straight out to pick what I want, be it asparagus, cilantro, or a tomato. I need to begin plotting my strategy for the upcoming year.

The Psychological benefits of gardening gave me a little push to get out there more this year.  

Last year was a lazy year, but now I've got quite a few seeds, plan on getting more, plan on getting a Pomegranate tree, and a few other things, all of which will push me out the door and bring me all those good gardening benefits.

Daniel, I like what Seed Savers Exchange do, but haven't grown enough of their plants yet to say for sure how much I like them.

Someday, I may start saving seeds like you do, and sending them some.

Daniel, yeah, you're back! I read your onion sprout blog. I never had any luck with onion seeds. Do you plant scallions and such?

Today I received from Seed Savers Exchange, seeds of 3 kinds of Broccoli, 2 kinds of Peas, Celery, Cauliflower, Lettuce, Tomato, Muskmelon, and Watermelon.

Daniel, what happened to your blogspot sidebar? Did you quit the site? I enjoyed reading your detailed garden exploits.

Spud, I don't think corn seeds being "treated" means anything bad. I soak the seeds 24 hours before planting which removes most of the red coating. Soaking speeds up the germination time. Your fingers will get red when you plant the seeds. Wash and you'll be fine. Hope you have a good crop!

I received some Golden Cross Bantam Hybrid (su) Corn seeds  today.  I didn't notice the word "Treated" when I ordered, but noticed in the package, it said they were treated with "Thiram, Captan or similar", and they had some red stuff on them.  

It also said to wash hands after touching.  I got them through Amazon because I couldn't find any su types at my favorite seed sites.

I don't like that, but I'll plant them anyway, and try to remember to read more carefully next time.

Anyway, it's been probably 10 years since I've planted corn in this small garden, and I'm looking forward to a taste treat this summer.

As they say, it must be the water. Crazy.
