Seeds for SALE!

This is our list of seeds for sale for 2012!

These farm-bred varieties are developed for the Pacific Northwest region, selected for hardiness, pest-resistance, and marketability.  These varieties are grown under the strictest standards of genetic fitness.  We do not grow seed varieties where there is a possibility of contamination from pollen from sexually compatible plants, either weeds or cultivars.  We maintain adequate populations of plant numbers to carry forth the genetic viability of each variety.  We do not harvest from less than fifty plants of any variety in order to prevent "genetic bottlenecking."  Our seeds are grown under the strictest organic conditions, as codified by the USDA National Organic Program.  Each of our plant varieties are selected for flavor and beauty, and they are grown with love!

Pictured to the left is the broccoli in each stage. Bred by Oregon State University, this broccoli is a commercial tight budded green broccoli in an open polinated strain.

Excellent flavor.  Great raw or cooked.  Nice tight heads and very tender.

Genovese Basil                           $3.50 min 100 seeds     $1.50 20 seeds

By far the favorite for cooking.  This has an incredible smooth flavor that is excellent for Pesto.  Basil is so much fun to grow and fairly easy care.  Having at least two plants is great for alternate cuttings.

This is a super yummy turnip.  These turnips have a golden color like yukon gold potatoes.  Their flesh can be baked , boiled, grilled, fried, or mashed.  They are best when just a little larger than golf balls, but smaller than tennis balls. Space 4" on center 8" apart. Plant in spring or fall.

Red Russian Kale                         $3.50 min 100 seeds     $1.50 20 seeds

This Kale is fairly slender leaved with undulating edges.  The leaves are dark green with purple hues and deep purple stems and veins.  The leaves are excellent for cooking with a mild taste and less pithiness than that of other kale like Dinosaur Kale. Easy to grow and quite hardy.

Beautiful and easy care with lower water needs.  Can withstand high heat, especially if mulched.  Plants have a 2.5 foot spread and top out at around 36 inches.  Great for its oils, wonderful for cutting and very easy care.  Can be through out to go without care in part sun areas.

Larkspur (mixed colors)       $2.50 min 100 seeds     $1.50 20 seeds   

I love this flower.  The colors are so brilliant.  Flowers are born in thick clusters on sturdy 3'-4' spikes.  Easy care.  Seedlings do not like to dry out, but once established they can easily take a drying out.  2' max spread.  I like to plant densely 8" on center for bold look.  Cut early in the morning for best vase life.  Shades of pink, white, purple and purple with blue.
