About

A very, very lovely mix of dark seeds that taste great raw or cooked. In our opinion, Mix #47, as it was originally named, is our most visually stunning mix. Over the years we have modified the name of this mix. We first added 'Midnight Moon' because we felt the mix was too lovely to be just a number. We have now, additionally named it after our lovely night hunter extraordinaire - Felis domestics - Neville; the most lovely cat to ever share our lives. Neville was born in April of 2000. He was a stray who joined our family while Nick (of Nick's Hot Sprout Salad fame) still walked the earth, and so our family's oral cat tradition has passed to him - through Nick - from the source - our original "pet" Dziga Vertov who was not really a cat - but rather a missing link. Dziga had actual thumbs on his forelegs (we have an x-ray to prove it) and he twice spoke cat english to us. I only mention Dziga (Zee-guh) here because he was the beginning of our family. 5 cats have followed to date as have 10 dogs and 2 human children. Dziga is largely responsible for all of them. We would name a mix after him, but no one knows how to pronounce his name. In any case, Neville and the Midnight Moon deserve to be honored and to be so honored together. There you are. We wish we could name a mix for each of our beloved 4-leggers. FYI: Our kids will not hear of such a thing as regards them - though we did have a mix named after our son during his first few years. But, none save our earliest Farmers Market customers could remember Sam's Grand Mix.

Notes
Due to the not-infrequent disappearance of Black Garbanzos we are sometimes use Speckled Peas, which actually look even better - and certainly more moon like. Just so you know.... Our Labels still list Black Garbanzos. They do not list Speckled Peas. Enjoy the surprise @;-)
