Rare and Heirloom Seeds

Did you know that Thomas Jefferson grew 19 varieties of lettuce in his garden?  Did you know that last year, Sadie from allnaturalme.com grew 5?  Haha ~ there is much expansion to be done!!

My wishlist from rareseeds.com is growing as big as my gardening dreams.  AMAZING vegetables are sprouting in my mind that I must sow ~ an Italian candy stripe beet that has spirals when you slice it, a Mexican Sunflower Torch (also known as the Golden Flower of the Aztecs)  and the Court Jester Marigold also needs to live with me.

Jere, Emilee and Sasha Gettle are seriously inspiring me to put on some old fashioned clothes and dig up the entire yard for planting.  Thank You!  Also looking forward to your book, The Heirloom Life AND magazine, The Heirloom Gardener, AND, major kudos to you for restoring Comstock’s old seedhouse.  When do you folks sleep??
