Last night I picked out three seeds that I want to try from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. They are:
Minnesota Midget Melon - I am liking the size of this melon. One person size, just a handful, only 4" across. And the description says: It is the perfect miniature of the "Classic Muskmelon". Perfect for me, too, I hope.
Lemon Squash - to be honest I like all kinds of Squash so I am sure I will like this one. I just especially like how it looks. Big fan of Lemons, that's me.
and a Tomato variety called Blueberries! What a cool combo, the look is terrific and from the description in the Baker Creek Heirloom Seed catalog they will taste sweet and fruity. That's enough to interest my eye and my taste buds.
For less than $10.00 that should bring a little variety and newness to my 2014 garden.
My garden goal is to figure out if I can feed myself this year. Of course, I will share if the opportunity presents itself, but what I want is to increase what I am eating from my own sowing. If all goes well I will have plenty to share, but if that happens it will just be gravy.
Bye for now, from Powell Cottage.
