There’s a lot of unusual plants I would like to grow, or just ones that aren’t usually carried by the seed companies that sell in stores in our area.
I ran across the Baker Creek Heirloom Seed website when I was looking for my mom’s favorite, Buttercup Squash. You can see their listing for it here. And, wow, when I first hit this site, it was an endless rabbit hole of amazing seeds!
I tried a couple last year, but I didn’t start them indoors, so I didn’t have much luck other than the Buttercup Squash and their Blacktail Mountain Watermelon which grew tiny, delicious watermelon. I mean tiny, smaller than a tennis ball, and completely ripe!
Anyway, their seed catalog arrived on Saturday!
I spent a good two hours happily poring through it and circling anything that looked amazing, and in a week or so I’ll go back through and start weeding it out. They run out of some varieties fast! And other ones I need to start from seeds in about two months, so I want to be sure to have them.
And I had to look up some of the vegetables because I had never heard of them!
This is my favorite time of year, with all the promise and hope of a new planting season. If you’re interested in looking at this one, you can order a free catalog here. *smile* No affiliate links here, just loving on this company!
