I started writing this a bit ago, before the computer crash...
Another blog posted this Online Canadian seed catalogue listing the other day. A little early, but I just can't help myself. It is January, after all. I'll be starting tomatoes soon!
My choices this year:
Boughen Nurseries, hardy plants for zones 1-3. I ordered 3 Siberian pear trees, and 3 seedling plums. If these do well for me, I'll be buying many more fruit trees from them in the future!
OSC Seeds gets the majority of my order, due to their stock of forage seeds for the pasture, and lower prices on vegetable seeds.
Prairie Garden Seeds, with their selection of grains and heritage seeds get the rest.
I spent more online for seeds than I ever have in the past. A lot more. However, I ordered EVERYTHING online this year, which I have never done before. I usually shop online for some oddball stuff to try, seeds that are hard to find locally, and heritage plants that I'll be saving seeds from for the future. Then I pick up a little of this here, and a little of that there, as long as the garden stores are open. I can't honestly say how much I usually end up spending in total, but I am a bit shell shocked at what I just spent.
New to my garden this year will be eggplant, kale and kohlrabi. Recipes welcome. I've never eaten any of them.
My first order has arrived from OSC! I am getting the itch!
