Native Seed S.E.A.R.C.H.

July 27, 2013 5 Comments

I am a member of a very special organization in Tucson. Native Seed S.E.A.R.C.H is a source for beans, garden seeds, education, and many local products.  I support the mission and benefit from the close proximity of the store.  We eat a wide variety of beans and chilies.  The store carries the basic ingredients we use all the time in our diet.  The seed preservation is the most important aspect of the mission.  Today I planted 5 new plants I bought at the monsoon plant sale: 3 new watermelon varieties, a bell pepper and a special cucumber.  They are all vigorous and healthy.  I expect them to thrive in the rainy season, which was the point of the sale.  We can grow many vegetables and fruits until  frost, and if we protect them even longer.  I have harvested giant crops of green tomatoes in December.  These plant varieties are from Arizona and New Mexico, so they are adapted to our climate.  I look forward to my Navaho red watermelon.  You don’t need to live here to join.  If you live in other parts of the country you can enjoy the benefits of membership which will keep your garden interesting.

When you travel what kind of design changes do you like to make? I usually enjoy design that is neat and modern, uncluttered and sleek.  This is just not the way to design a gambling casino, as I have discovered.  When I see the world’s largest chocolate fountain I am not at all attracted to it.  It is obvious that many people like it a lot.  There is a place for public art, and since casinos have a lot of the public’s cash to use, it is fitting that they create adult fantasy environments. If flowing chocolate and giant bees are your thing, you will totally love the Bellagio in Las Vegas.
