Living Seeds Christmas specials just for you ….

Hey Livingseeds Gardeners.

Can you believe that it’s the end of the year already? In just a few short weeks we will be in the midst of Christmas Holidays.

There is a whole lot of stuff happening on the Livingseeds Farm, and a whole lot more that still needs to happen here before the holidays kick in.

Last year this time we had received 169 mm of rain, this year it’s totally different. We have only had 81.5mm. And we can see the huge difference the rain/lack thereof makes to the garden and fields.

I do see that the Cape is getting some nice rain which is a great blessing for everyone there.

The Livingseeds Show Garden is almost ready for the public. We are just ironing out a few small wrinkles and then we should be ready to open. We had hoped to open last month, however delayed rains and then excessive heat put paid to plans of gardeners and dreamers.

Stand by for an early January announcement.
So, onto our newsletter.
There is one main focus point to this newsletter.
