More supplies of the One Seed salad mix seed packets are on their way to your local Sarasota County libraries, also. Be on the lookout, so you can try your hand at sowing the One Seed crop. You may notice it says 2021, since the 2022 crop won’t be released until the fall season. One Seed salad mix flier
