Planning for my 2017 garden can begin! About a week ago I received The Whole Seed Catalog from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. I suspect very soon the Seed Savers Catalog and Yearbook will arrive in my mailbox, as should the guide from Territorial Seed Company.
I already know that many varieties of lettuce, winter squash, tomatoes, and flowers will make my list. I’ll purchase several varieties of sunflowers, cabbage, and peppers; and a couple varieties of potatoes, zucchini, and onions. Other veggies will likely have at least one variety find their way to my garden beds: peas, arugula, beetroot, and carrots.
I will look for varieties that add color (and health) to my garden and diet.
Stay tuned as I share pictures and purchase lists in future snazzy posts. I’ll also explain why certain veggies made it and others did not.
