Seed Library Helps You Grow Fall & Winter Plants

Keep your garden growing into the fall and even through the winter with seeds that are available right now at the King County Seed Lending Library inside the PNA Tool Library.

You can start all sorts of salad greens, plus second sowings of peas, beets, turnips and carrots for fall harvest. Plant kale, broccoli and other brassica-family crops for fall and overwintering.

Small quantities of seed for all these crops are now available at the PNA’s branch of the seed library. They’re inside the green cabinet in the tool library’s office, available for free whenever the tool library is open.

And if you’re saving seeds from your favorite edibles, donate seeds to the library anytime. Package them securely and mark them well with the type of crop, variety name, and year harvested.

Whenever you donate or “check out” seeds from the library, please note your action on the library’s form.

More information on the library and how to save seeds is available at kingcoseed.org.

Hours for the library are:
Wednesdays: 3-6:30 pm
Fridays: 5-7 pm
Saturdays: 9 am-2 pm
