I'm movin' on...

My blog has moved and I hope you'll come with me!

Growing Green is now Seattle Seedling (!

Same ideas, same mission, same blog, just a different name, a name that's much easier to share and remember than the old one.

Here's to new beginnings!

An Incredible Feast!

I just bought my tickets to attend the 6th annual fundraiser farmers' market dinner titled, An Incredible Feast – Where the Farmers are the Stars, and I am SO excited!! Last year, I didn't see the poster for this event until the day before and I was so bummed. By then, it was too late to get it together to go. I just told Jake this week that I've got to look up the event information ahead of time so I don't miss it this year and to my delight, on Saturday, there was a chalkboard at the U. District Farmers' Market advertising this year's dinner.

I talked to some of the girls at the market and they gave me to the scoop. Basically, all these amazing local chefs convene to create lots of gourmet dishes with local produce, showcasing our local and seasonal bounty. The flier says it best, "guests can sample over 30 gourmet dishes, enjoy excellent local (Salmon Safe certified!) wines and beers, and meet the chefs and farmers behind the food." And this year, because it's a 21 and over event, you'll be able to walk around and enjoy the food and festivities with your wine or beer in hand rather than being confined to a wine/beer garden area. I also heard through the grapevine that one of the fun country-fair-style games might be skee-ball! It doesn't get better than that! Oh! And bring your own plate and fork to the event and you can be entered into a drawing. I love that!

The tickets are now available at, which you can access while also getting more information about the event by visiting I can't speak from experience, but I think this is going to be a delightful event and I can hardly wait!
