I’ve been reading Young Adult Fiction Author Brandon Sanderson’s work for some time now and while his writing is really unexeptional, the universe he builds and the concepts of deity and magic and human nature are compelling. If you can look past bad writing I would recommend most of his work. His books take place in the fictional universe called “The Cosmere” and so many of the concepts are linked in the books. So, I’m reading his latest in the Stormlight Archive called Oathbringer.
As for the Gardening tips and facts I promised, the first one is about fermenting seeds to save them. I had no idea that this was a “thing” and had always just dried any seeds I was saving in a nice, shady, mid temperature area with good enough airflow. I thought that the idea was to NOT let them ferment. Turns out that with tomato seeds and others it is a good idea to let the seeds ferment in some standing juice/water for about three days before letting them dry. Proponants of fermenting seeds say that it can help mitigate virus or other disease. I don’t think it helps with any viral disease inside the seed itself but it certainly must do a number on any pathogens lurking in the juice or seed coating. So, I’m going to try the fermentation method this year!
