Blackhillsgarden.com got a nice note from Kristi Reed of After Skool Kids alerting to a great on-line find of resources for children in the garden. Brittany found this!!

There are so many exciting things to explore on the site that Brittany found. Send blackhillsgadren.com photographs of some of your activities, successes and failures (it's ok. We all have them!) and we can post them on this page, especially for kids in the garden!

The 8 Seeds That Can Store At Least 5 Years


While storage methods have a big impact on seed longevity, the type of cultivar also makes a difference.

  • Broccoli
  • Cabbage
  • Cauliflower
  • Cucumber
  • Muskmelons
  • Spinach
  • Radishes
  • Lettuce
