My 2012 Garden Catalog stash.
I just love looking at them and reading them.
But I pull out my favorites and use the rest for projects with the Grandkids.
My favorites are:
Territorial Seeds - This catalog is like a western WA gardening guide with planting dates, etc.
Botanical Interests - Great illustrations instead of photos, along with garden projects.
Bountiful Gardens - Sustainable gardening and open-pollinated seeds.
Raintree Nursery - Pacific NW best fruit trees, bushes and berries, plus care instructions.
Ritchers 2012 Herbs - Full of herbal delights for your herb garden.
Le Jardin du Gourmet - You can order very small packets of seed for herb and vegetables to try.
Adaptive Seeds - Now my favorite! A small company from Sweet Home, OR. Everything is for the NW garden, open-pollinated seeds.
Last year I purchased and saved two years worth of seeds
and have them stored in a safe, cool place.
But when I got the 2012 Adaptive Seeds catalog
there were a few things I "needed".
- Tomato, Oldendorf Red
- Tomato, Fakel
- Sweet Corn, New Mama Super Sweet
- Melon, Sweet Freckles
- Kale, Madeley
- Cauliflower, Leamington Winter Giant
- Oats, Cayuse
- Wheat, Maris Wigeon
We are really excited to try these short season "newbies" for our garden.
I hope your garden is in the planning. In the meantime we are drinking some wonderful Spearmint, Catnip tea from our herb garden.
