I am enterainng lots of thoughts on how to leverage my property which has tremendous potential for lots of things to be the beautiful place that I imagine yet also resourceful and revenue generating. So it is with special interest that I peruse stores like the Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds in Petaluma California.
Do I want to run a seed shop…not exactly (exactly what though I am not sure) but I want what ever it is to possess this sense of history, patina, and timelessness that all earthy pursuits should have. I discovered this store in a post late last week over at Design Sponge and I can’t wait til I can make a trip to Northern California to check it out in person.
Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds is housed in the 1926 Sonoma County Bank building and it sells over 1200 varieties of heirloom fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers. The Founder Jere Gettle is dedicated to saving heirloom varieites from the world over.
Check out the full post at design sponge….but it is the beautiful Amish-built seed racks are what I am taken with. This is the look that I would want in my someday barn- come- whatever it will become.
