Seeds, Seeds, and SEEDS for Garden 2013
So far I have received six seed catalogs. I get REALLY excited when the seed catalogs come in the door. Of course, I have been checking each and every one out as they get in the door. Trying to develop the garden plan this year... :-)
I think I have noticed something alarming though - the amount of hybrid seeds have increased tremendously this year. Or perhaps I am noticing it more because I am focused more on heirloom seeds. But it seems a real shame that there is so much emphasis on hybrids. Have you guys noticed the same thing?
The only catalog I did not receive this year was the one from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds that I am so interested in. So I sent them a request this morning for their catalog - just in case you would like a free catalog too - here's the link HERE. Their seeds are comparable to Burpee and Gurneys and various others.
Last year was my first attempt at saving seeds. I hope that the process I went through to save heirloom tomato seeds works! I soaked them in a glass jar (covered) for 3-4 days until the white film covered the top. Then rinsed them off and dried them for saving. Just in case it did not work I thought I better have a back-up plan! haha
Blogger seems to be having issues this morning with uploading photos so this is sort of a boring blog with photos! Sorry about that! Have a great day!
