We're trying a new (to us) seed company this year - Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. No GMO seeds, all heirlooms, good prices and a huge selection. Since we got so many seeds on clearance last fall, we just ordered a few things.
Amaranth - Golden Giant
Fava Beans - Aquadulce
Mammoth Red Mangel Beets (we are growing these mostly for the chickens)
Cowpeas - Six Week Purple Hull
Ground Cherry (Strawberry Husk Tomato)
Quinoa - Kaslala
Lettuce - Little Gem (Romaine type)
Watermelon - Katanya (60 days - woo!!)
Single Hollyhocks - Indian Spring
Job's Tears (a type of hollyhock)
Isn't that a weird bunch of stuff? All of them are new to us - at least new varieties. I can't wait to try them out an see what we get! I've heard great things about ground cherries, I hope they were true!
Of course, as soon as I placed the order, I found something I wish I'd ordered. Just now, I found something else. I am going to call tomorrow and see if I can add a packet (or two, or by tomorrow, probably six) to the order. I don't want to pay shipping twice.
That said - shipping is $3.00 no matter the size of the order. That's excellent! The catalog is gorgeous, and I really want to go visit their store some day. They have a historic homestead, festivals, rare poultry breeds...in a way, I'm almost afraid to go there! I won't ever want to leave!
If you are curious - visit rareseeds.com
Now, all I need are potato sets, onion sets....raspberries, grapes, blueberries, strawberries, gooseberries, blackberries...somebody stop me!!!!
