Seeds for 2013 now available!

Saturday, December 29, 2012

It's that time of the year again when every farmer and gardener's thoughts turn towards the exciting varieties of seeds they can choose from among the different catalogues arriving in the mail. Enticing photos of vegetables and flowers in their summer glory stand out in bright contrast to the snowy white blanket that covers the ground outside our warm houses. At least, that's what it's like at our farm, and we think many of our fellow Canadians are experiencing the same thing. We've mailed out our new seed listing to customers and are starting to get orders coming in through the mail and this website. All our listings are now updated for 2013, and we invite you to spend some time looking at what we have to offer this year.

It's an exciting lineup of heritage varieties loved for their flavour, appearance, and dependability. But we also have some newer, more modern varieties that have become popular favourites with you, our customers. All the seeds we offer are open-pollinated, which means you can save seed from them if you wish. And of course, they're all organically grown, and adapted to the real life conditions of ecologically sustainable farming and gardening practices, so they'll thrive in your fields and gardens.

These seeds are either grown at our own farm here in Johnson's Landing, or by the hands of seven other farmer/partners who grow seed for us in British Columbia. Click on the "Growers" link above to read more about the people who have made this years seed offerings possible. We're proud to be part of a network of people making locally grown seed available to you. May you have a peaceful winter, and much success with your gardens next summer.
