This year I have become quite brave (or is it cocky??), I have ordered more than a handful of heirloom seeds. Since this seed ordering thing is a bit of an addiction (or in my mind 'seed money' in the bank), I ventured out of my comfort zone and visited a familiar site, Amishland Seeds. If you have never gone through the many varieties offered here it's worth a trip over. Now.
I have ogled this site for a year now but have not had the courage to purchase these carefully raised, often times rare seed. What if I screw up and kill the seedling? Or what if pest and disease pressure is so high I don't get a successful harvest?
Where do I find the room? The answer to that question may lay in next year's garden. Am I insane to be ordering seeds I won't even grow this year? I think not. I did the same last year and am glad I did as at least one of the tomato varieties I ordered is not available this year. With the poor outcome of last year's gardening season for so many I am not taking any chances this year either. So, the variety I am most excited about is ......................
I have read so many good things about this variety, I just hope it does as well for me as it has for others since soil, climate, yadda-yadda-yadda can all influence taste. Mmmmmm. Can you taste those sun warmed summer tomatoes yet?
