Seed varieties

Thanks to Sandra for asking about which seeds we have used this season! The bulk of our seeds have been ordered from Park Seed Company of Greenwood, South Carolina. I have used this vendor for several years with much success. The varieties in our winter garden are:
Organic Beet Boro Hybrid
Lettuce Red Sails
Mustard Savanna
Collards Georgia
Swiss Chard Bright Lights
Celery Tango Hybrid
Cauliflower Amazing
Organic Broccoli Delight
Onion Yellow Granex
Beet Touchstone Gold Hybrid

Another souce of seeds which we use is Botanical Interests from Broomfield, Colorado. Typically, I purchase these seeds at the garden store. I have planted the following:
Radish French Breakfast
Kohlrabi Purple and White Vienna Blend
Lettuce Romaine Parris Island Cos
Purple Top White Globe Turnips

The Early Jersey Wakefield Cabbage and Prickly-seeded Spinach seeds came from The Thomas Jeffson Center for Historic Plants. See my earlier blog about Monticello!

This season we purchased a few seedlings at the Natural Gardener store in Oak Hill. They include the Broccoli Rabe, Brussels Sprouts, Leeks, and a few Broccoli and Cauliflower planra.

In the photo above I have included my notebook which I keep with the seeds. I draw a layout of the garden each season with each row indicating what was planted. This helps me keep the crops rotated as much as possible.
