Each year I’ve been trying to perfect my seed starting routine. Last year was fabulous. I had plenty of healthy starts for myself and for all my friends (I had about 50 leftover seedlings I gave away last year). I prefer open-pollinated heirlooms, but I also grow a few F1 hybrids, like the “Early Treat” tomato I picked up last year. It’s about a 45 day tomato, and though they aren’t huge, they’re beautiful and delicious. A good carry-over until the big boys come in.
Well, it’s late January here in Memphis, which means it’s almost time to start my spring seedlings. But at this point I haven’t decided what I’m ordering, and who I’m ordering from. I’m late!
But I’d like your help. This year I’d like to know what some of your favorite varieties are, and what seed companies you order from. Again, I’d prefer open-pollinated heirlooms, so that I can save seed, and I’d prefer growers from the southeast, so that the conditions under which the seeds have been cultivated will be similar to my own.
So – what and who do you love? Post in the comments, below, and thanks!
