Unofficial Seed List

February 18, 2010

I’ve spent many evening poring over the Kitchen Garden Seeds catalog (keepin’ it local!), and I’ve finally got a list that’s looking alright.

POLE BEANS
Purple Podded
Blue Lake

CARROTS
Royal Chanteray
Purple Dragon

SALAD GREENS
Merlot Batavian
Red Salad Bowl
Jericho Romaine
Arugula

SWISS CHARD
Bright Lights

PEAS
Snowflake
Petit Pois Precoville

TOMATOES
Heirloom mixture: Banana Legs, Big Rainbow Striped, Black Russian, Brandywine, Costoluto Genovese, Green Zebra, Persimmon

STRAWBERRIES
Fresca

PEPPERS
Red Beauty
Jalepeno

WINTER SQUASH
Pasta Spaghetti
Spooktacular Pie
Howden’s Field

BASIL
Sweet Broadleaf

BROCCOLI
Waltham 29

Then there’s some nasturniums, ornamental kale, and morning glories. PLUS, the possibility of a cool added surprise, if I can make it happen. I don’t want to jinx it the way I did the wheat.

If I had to cut anything from the list, I’ll probably reduce the tomatoes, but then I’d add some onions and garlic.

The list seems basic, but the reality is that this is what will get eaten in our house.

Anyone have anything exciting on the list this year?

    I have started a list of what I want to try to do this year, but i can’t choose where to get my seeds from. I have about 8 catalogs sitting by my bed. We won’t be doing anything exciting either, but just growing it is exciting enough for me. And I have been talking to Avery about it when we are eating “vegebels” and I can’t wait to share the garden with her this summer.

    I didn’t have as many catalogs to choose from, but I really liked how Kitchen Garden Seeds felt more familiar and down home, rather than the glossy photos of the Burpee catalog. I’m also learning about the joy of sharing the garden with kids. It was a pleasant surprise to see our son picking and eating beans right from the plant. Happily, he has continued to love eating beans.
