Seeds on the Brain

Well here it is, past Thanksgiving and I'm still saying goodbye to my summer garden in Baltimore, MD. Except for the basil, the herb garden is still going fine. I even have a random tomato plant which I left up with the slowest ripening tomatoes in existence. I've had a hard time 'letting go' this fall so it's only natural that I am already thinking about next spring. I can't help but turn to the web, to find some treasures to plant in April. So I've dug up some links to some great seed websites, I hope you enjoy...

Rare Seeds
I wish I had planted some of these squash this summer & was enjoying some pumpkin curry right now. Great website (I hope they add more photos) there is a huge variety of esoteric verdura, it's great.

Territorial Seed Company
Great website with a bit of everything, including citrus trees. I know it's not a seed but I'm eying this pink lemon.

D. Landreth Seeds
Pennsylvania based Landreth Seed Company has a large selection of veggie seeds, bulbs, and starts. I'm loving these Purple Majesty potatoes.

Southern Exposure Seed Company

SESC has an interesting southern slant on veggies... lot's of peppers and peanuts. Check out this special melon which only a gardener could enjoy because "Some gardeners say there is no better melon for flavor if you harvest at the right time".

Seed Saver's Exchange
Seed Saver's Exchange is a non-profit organization of gardeners dedicated to saving and sharing heirloom seeds. I became a member and I'm looking forward to my 2010 catalog very soon!

I'm also into saving seeds too, more on that later. If anybody knows of a great resource for heirloom varieties, then please let us know (via the handy comment feature below).
