Ahhh that time of year again. After weeks of perusing all those lovely seed catalogs, decisions have been made, seeds chosen, and orders placed! All is good! So, as usual, I’ll be listing this year’s garden contenders… why? because invariably I lose my paper with them all listed and can’t remember! It’s true!
This year most all of our seeds are coming from Bakers Creek, the same company that we used for most of our seeds last year. We have a good many seeds that we saved from last year so I’ll post them later as we plant them as I can’t even remember what we have exactly!! But here’s what I recently ordered:
Aunt Ruby’s German Green
Red Cheese- these are EXCELLENT pickled!
Winter Luxury Pie Pumpkin
Triomphe de Farcy- this is a haricot verts type green bean
Roma II- this is a flat Romanesco type green bean
Henderson’s Bush Lima- this one’s a… well… lima bean
Beets– I love beets. Love. Love. Love. Maybe my favorite root veg.
Flat of Egypt
Rocky Top Lettuce Mix
Siamese Dragon Stir Fry Mix
Yellow of Parma
Jaune Paille Des Vertus
Sorghum-I believe that M has grown sorghum before.
Roselle– beautiful plant!!
Crookneck Early Golden Summer Squash
Chinese Chives Mixed
Wild Zataar Oregano
Arikara Sunflower- it has edible seeds and is very pretty. .
Orange Hawaii Marigold- according to the catalog, you can feed the flowers to chickens to brighten the yolks… we’ll let you know how that goes.
