From Seed to Skillet Success at Potted
Well our St. Paddy’s Day may not have been filled with green beer, but we got something much better…Jimmy Williams and Susan Heeger talking about their new book “From Seed to Skillet.” The evening started off with a great flat bread pizza and sinful sweet treats from our wonderful neighbors The Village Bakery. Then we went all out with wine and Pellagrino using our super fancy Govina PBA-free plastic wine glasses. With the crowd sufficiently full and drunk, Jimmy regaled us with tales of his grandmother and even shared his special recipe for amending soil (but to find that out, you’ll have to buy the book).
The talk went on for quite some time and everyone learned a lot (for instance, I didn’t realize that plants take more nutrients in through their leaves than they do through their roots…just make sure to spray them from underneath.) Buy the book; it’s all in there. Jimmy sells at the Santa Monica and Hollywood Farmers’ Markets and will also allow you to come to his Silver Lake nursery by appointment only.
