Garden

The garden is still under 8″ of snow, but I ordered some seeds last night.  Generally I order from Johnny’s, the catalog I remember from when I was a kid, but this year I went with Fedco.  They recently took a stand and ditched Seminis after it was acquired by Monsanto.  I like the quirky commentary and the prices are much lower; less than a buck for a small packet in some cases, where commercial seed companies rarely let a mini go for much under 3 bucks these days.  One of these years I’m going to set up some side-by-side comparisons of open-pollinated vs. F1 varieties; maybe I can convince myself to do all open.
