I ordered seeds this weekend, about 60 different vegetables. What did I choose and why?
I mostly picked open-pollinated varieties, which means there is a possibility of saving seeds for the next season. Growers who develop hybrids can boast certain qualities, but the seeds of the next generation will not run true.
Heirloom seeds. There’s a very real risk that heirlooms don’t have sufficient disease resistance. At the very worst, the entire crop is lost. Check with me in a few months how I feel about heirlooms.
Above is an unusual looking but very popular vegetable. Can you guess what it is?
