The Potager

The Potager

Sunday, January 16, 2011


On Friday seeds arrived from Gurney's and Pine Tree Seeds! It was Christmas all over again!
From Gurney's I received Blue Lake Pole Beans, Lincoln Peas, Danvers Half Long Carrots, Tyee Spinach, Early Prolific Straightneck Summer Squash, Evergreen White Bunching Onions, Ruby Queen Beets, Golden Acre Cabbage, and Black Seeded Simpson Lettuce. From Pine Tree Seeds I got Ruby Perfection Cabbage, Windsor Broccoli, Bright Lights Swiss Chard, Yellow Spanish Onions and New Red Fire, Oakleaf and Buttercrunch Lettuces. My red onion seeds were back ordered. My husband says my eyes are bigger than my garden. It's probably more like they are bigger than gardening skills! But I will have fun learning what does and does not work in the Potager in 2011!

Though I do not believe that a plant will spring up where no seed has
been, I have great faith in a seed.  Convince me that you have a seed
there, and I am prepared to expect wonders.
-   Henry David Thoreau


  1. I always feel the same way when my seeds arrive from Tomato Bob's. Unfortunately, my garden has gone by the wayside as it has been replaced by grandchildren. I think I will grow them for a bit instead.

  2. Debbie, thanks for dropping by! I'm sure growing grandchildren is of far greater value. We all just seem to need to nurture something, be it plant, animal or adorable! Enjoy them!
