Michael Horst makes time for an urban farm in S. Toledo
Not fussy about weeds, Michael Horst’s vegetable patch is a bit out of control. He planted in May, then went to India for a few weeks and the weeds got a foothold. Adding to the chaos, he tossed outdated seeds, some marked for use as long ago as 2008, into the patch. “A lot of stuff came up. I keep finding surprises,” says Horst. Seeds beyond expiration date can still grow, but with lesser viability. He obtains free seed packets at the annual Seed Swap organized by Toledo Grows.
