The years go by quickly.
Documenting your year in the garden through photos can be a great way of keeping records for improving next year's methods, for selecting varieties that have performed extremely well, even for sharing ideas with your friends, neighbors, and community.
Photos can also be about looking back with fondness in the years to come on time well spent.
Every year we are sent countless photos of gardens from schools that received our seeds through Herman's Garden donation programs, from community gardeners who are using our resources to build their own seed gardens, and from home growers who take pride in their produce.
At Seed Savers Exchange we use photos to document our work, to record images of particular varieties, and to share the experience of our events and daily activity with you.
Here's a look at some of our favorites from the last few years, all taken by the staff at Heritage Farm in Decorah, Iowa.
Thank you for sharing your time with us, for sharing your seeds with us, and for sharing the stories of your gardens and traditions with us. We hope you enjoyed some of the photos we've shared with you.
Take a look at our webinar on Garden Photography to learn how to capture your garden at its best throughout the season.
