We arrived early on Friday morning and almost immediately boarded a bus to visit Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. There we watched a presentation about organic seeds, toured their demonstration garden, shopped in their store, and ate a great lunch.
The demo garden was unusual. It was constructed of flagstone, with sunken beds rather than raised beds. Debbie and I agreed that this would break our backs and further ruin our knees! The Baker Creek folks must be young.
