Just bought some seeds today from these lovely people! Maya runs kitazawa seed company, which started in 1917 and is right in downtown Oakland. Any seed we don’t save for ourselves or receive as gifts pretty much comes from here. They specialize in Asian seed varieties and never sell genetically engineered seeds. Plus she has a real wealth of knowledge of all things food related. I can never stop by to pick up an order without spending over an hour talking shop with her. So grateful to have this wonderful business in our backyard! Thanks to maya I’m going to get a nice patch of arugula and cress in tomorrow! #nicejoboakland #wherethemagicstarts
Drying our two kinds of Korean gochu chiles for @namusf. You can see the various stages of drying from just picked to almost done clockwise from upper left.
Kohlrabi, radish medley, cauliflower. Enjoying the golden hour together.
Sweet and hot peppers for @namusf #namufarm no filter!
Sesame plant, as tall as I am
The pods dry from the bottom up
A little shake and suddenly, sesame as we know it
