2011: The Main Seed Order

Yesterday Eugene and I sat down in front of the computer with several seed catalogues and proceeded to do our main seed order for 2011. This year we ordered from Fedco, Johnny's and Baker Creek. We will likely order some more seeds from Seed Savers Exchange and Dixondale (they do nothing but onion and leek plants and we have heard great things about them and after 15 years of starting our own onions, scallions, leeks and shallots from seed we are thinking about trying seedlings and see what happens).

Here is what we have ordered so far. You won't see many lettuce or tomato seeds in these orders as we save most of what we grow from our own stock, same with yellow and red onions, popcorn, arugula and many other things. And, of course, we have left over seed that is still viable from last year and years before that. But this does give you a fairly good account as to what we plan to plant this year. for the complete list see our

Hello, I just stumbled onto your blog, I love Dixondales onions, I live in Walla Walla country and that's the only plants you find for sale here and I like to grow storage onions. "Copra" lasts me until the next crop is ready.

Why did you pick the Green Magic Broccoli?

I'm looking to fall in love with a broccoli variety.
