Now that it is January, it's time to start thinking about seeds. Yes I live in a northern state where snow is currently on the ground. But now is the time to do your research so that when it's time to plant your vegetables you are all ready to do so.
When it comes to buying vegetable seeds, Burpee is my favorite company. They have a wide selection and there seed packs give you all the information you need. I received an e-mail from them last week advertising their new varieties they have for 2010. In this post I am going to mention some that sound interesting.
These french green beans are suppose to be twice as prolific as most other green beans. They are also slender and stringless.
These peas were made in mind of those that live in cooler climates of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states. They purpose about 7-8 peas per pod.
These tomatoes can weight up to 12 oz. They are orange in color and have a nearly seedless flesh.
In one season this plants can produce hundreds of small sweet cherry tomatoes.
Looks like Burpee has a tomato in every color this year. This pink tomato is said to be ideal for sandwiches, burgers, and salads.
This garlic is said to be a fast grower with a mild flavor. If handed properly, it can be braided, and keep for 6 months!
The claim on this one is that it is one of the highest yielding edible soybeans for home gardens. Each pod contains 2-3 beans.
If your looking for larger carrots, this one can grow to 8 inches. It's a good choice for those that want to make some carrot juice.
For all the cauliflower fans, this is a mix of seeds that will give white, purple, green, and yellow colored cauliflower. These will look beautiful on in your bowl.
This is a fingerling potato with a yellow flesh and rose color skin. At first glance I thought these were sweet potatoes.
I picked up an organic version of these potatoes at a grocery store recently and they had a great buttery taste to them. There are a fingerling variety.
These zucchini look really nice with striples, that remind me of a watermelon. They also are said to be the best tasting.
