But spring is not that far away as we get closer and closer to the equinox and the feeling that each day is longer than the one before it surrounds us. My first order is from Baker's Creek Heirloom Seeds, probably the largest heirloom seed company in the US. It's a family business but their seed collection is tremendous. They also publish a magazine, Heirloom Gardener, that is worth checking out. I bring my old copies to the Langdon Library, if interested.
Unfortunately, this year I won't be growing any cucumbers or squash because of the cucumber beetles and squash vine borers. I am going to take a year off and hopefully their population crashes. Not sure it will work, but that's good news for the farmers at the market.
I also plan to re-order from Adaptive Seeds which offers one of the best watermelons, Bozeman, and a few other plants that can't be found anywhere else. But more on that later. Here is my list of seeds for the garden in 2013!
