The 2012 Seed Order

Here’s what we’ll be growing in 2012! Just put the Fedco order in tonight. We’ve loved Seed Savers but they’re farther away and focused more strictly on heirloom (we’re fine with open-pollinated too). Plus, Fedco is taking on Monsanto in a class action lawsuit. No seeds are treated, whether certified organic or not, and they don’t sell genetically engineered seed. Though the large majority of the cultivars listed are heirloom and/or open-pollinated, several varieties are unstable hybrids, notably sweet corns, several brassicas, and eggplants. In the table below, 0- indicates hybrid, 1- indicates open-pollinated. Too many heartbreaks. But don’t worry, we won’t be busting out the Roundup. Still very committed to growing organically and sustainably.
