2010 garden seeds

My 2010 seeds have started to arrive. So far I've gotten my J.L. Hudson, Seedsman and Bakercreek Heirloom seeds and I'm waiting for my Fedco order. I didn't order too many because I still have a lot from last year that I never even got in the ground. I'll start doing some old seed germination tests next month to see what I can still use from last year.

I've decided this year I am going to grow more cucurbits, less nightshades, and lots of poppies.

A new favorite artist?

I found out about this artist Allison Schulnik today and I think she might be my new favorite artist. Her paintings remind me of this one strange painting that used hang in the waiting room at my pediatrician's office. It had clowns in it and it was supposed to be a happy piece of artwork for the children but instead it was very creepy and kind of dusty.
She also does amazing animation. This is a piece she made for the band Grizzly Bear. I love that it's totally analog.
