A sojourn to Mansfield, Missouri, including rare seeds.
Have any of you been to this Wilder home, or any of the other museums around the country?
I wandered into the theater just to find a cool place to sit down and was surprised to find myself fascinated by the short films on various plants and their history.
Thank you for letting us vicariously enjoy your trip. I’ve read the “Little House” books more times than I can count. I’m also a Baker Creek addict, so you’ve added incentive for me to visit Mansfield. Btw, the pink celery is wonderful! I’d almost call it invasive because it re-seeds so readily.
I’ve never been to Mansfield but have saved this post and added it to my list of places to visit in the US. We travel internationally extensively but neglect the places like this right here at home. Thanks for sharing.
I love Baker Creek Seeds and have been buying from them for a long time. I try to split my seed orders between them and Strictly Medicinal when I want new varieties to plant. I also try to save as much seed as I can.
Thank you for the look into the Little House on the Prairie author’s life. I watched the show and read the books, some of my favorite stories. ❤️
Haha, we took the same vacation!
We did the wilder farm and baker creek on Thursday on the way down, so we couldn't know whether there was overlap yet ;)
This post really caught my eye as I am currently reading "Prairie Fires, The American Dreams of LAURA INGALLS WILDER" by Caroline Frazer. What a fascinating chronicle of the rest of the story of her real life experiences that inspired the writing of The Little House books. The span of history she witnessed in her lifetime is hard to imagine and now I need to reread the series with the new perspective I've gained!
