It's quite a while until I will be able to get my hands dirty in a garden, but it is almost time to start ordering seeds. As previously mentioned, an organization I am involved with is working on getting a garden project here in North Bay started.
We intend to have plenty of veggies, there's already some fruit trees and berries, wild and native plants (there is a lot already!), culinary and medicinal herbs (some already), and some other flowers.
So far I have seeds for:
Heirloom Winter Squash (I am not sure of the name. I also purchased a squash as well. The seeds and squash came from an Amish family, and is apparently often used in pies. It could have been Amish Pie Squash, but it more resembles a Golden Hubbard Squash or Pumpkin Squash.)
Curly Dock (I was told that it can be used as a green manure, but have yet anything to see on this. But, it does have some good medicinal properties.)
I've been pouring over catalogues and online stores to figure out what other seeds to get, and these are what I have my heart set on:
Well, I am off to browse some more and daydream of green things!
