First seed catalog of the new season!!!Posted Thursday, November 20, 2008, at 9:45 PM
I don't believe I remember getting a new seed catalog before Thanksgiving, but there it was sitting in our mailbox from Pinetree Garden Seeds. This year they expanded their heirloom varieties with their oldest so far being from 1824.
Heirloom varieties stay true as long as you don't have others of their kind too close to each other so they are great to save for following years. With the genetic roulette game many seed growers are doing these days, your seed will rarely be reproducible.
One of our garden club members has what she bought as a Big Boy Pea produce three other peas when she grew them the second year. By the way, these are also knows as (dried) beans in other parts of the country.
I have just started on the seed catalog. Has anyone else started receiving theirs?
