This is the latest catalog from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds based in Mansfield, MO. The catalog is beautiful and the accurate and quirky descriptions make selecting seeds so much fun. On top of that, not a single seed varietal comes from Monsanto or ConAgra - not even the corn!! My two favorite picks? Moon & Stars watermelons and Royal Hillbilly tomatoes.
Last night I started my seeds indoors in hopes of growing transplants for this spring. I'll post updates as things start to sprout. My plan is to do raised beds and I'm considering the Square Foot Gardening method per Mel Bartholomew. I'd love to hear from anyone who's tried it (especially in Texas).
Last but not least, even the seed packets look pretty!! Wish me luck...
