10 tips for planning a garden your kids will love!

Available in individual seed packs

Radish Malaga $2.50

Round roots are a very unusual color–deep plum purple/violet, so pretty in contrast with the snow-white flesh! Mild roots stay firm and crisp over a long season.

 

 

Kale Scarlet $2.75

A lovely curled “red” (purple) kale that produces lots of delicious, frilly leaves and takes on the chill of winter with stride! Pretty in the flower garden or on the plate. Rich in nutrition and flavor.

 

Cucumber Crystal Apple $2.75

Small 3” oval fruit are a bright, creamy white, about the size of a small apple; sweet, mild and very tender. This variety has become almost extinct in America after being introduced here from Australia around the year 1930 from Arthur Yates and Co. But this type of cucumber is likely to have originated in China. The small fruit are so tender you can eat them skin and all.

 

Snap Pea Cascadia $2.50

A snap pea with unusually thick-walled pods. Pods are at their peak at about 3” long, and have sweet, wrinkled little peas in them at that time. So crisp and juicy! The plants require no staking, since they reach only about 30” in height. A newer variety that has some disease resistance, a distinct improvement over Sugar Ann. Bred by Jim Baggett of OSU especially for the Northwest.

Corn Glass Gem $5.00

Indescribably beautiful flint or popcorn comes in an endless range of colors. Translucent kernels really do shine brilliantly like glass—on the cob they resemble strands of glass beads! The 3-8″ ears are consummately decorative, but edible and delicious as well. Makes firm little morsels when popped; can also be parched, ground into meal, and more. Sturdy plants reach to 9′ in height, throw numerous sideshoots where the season is long enough. Bred from a number of Native varieties by Carl “White Eagle” Barnes, the famous Cherokee corn collector to whom we owe our gratitude for his life’s work of collecting, preserving and sharing so many Native corn varieties.

Corn Dakota Black Popcorn $3.50

Dark reddish-black ears of corn are quite attractive for fall decorations, or popping into tasty popcorn! This variety is easy to grow, and does well in almost all growing climates. Fun for children’s gardens.

 

Chioggia (Bassano) Beet $2.50

Pre-1840 Italian heirloom beet, this variety arrived in the USA prior to 1865. They have light red skin and beautiful rings inside, like red and white candy stripes. The flesh is very tender, mild and sweet. Named after a fishing town in Italy, a favorite here.

 

Golden Beet $2.50 

This variety dates back to the 1820’s or before. The beets are a rich, golden-yellow and very sweet. A beautiful beet that won’t bleed like red beets. The greens are also very tasty. A favorite of many.

 

Nero Di Toscana Cabbage $2.50

This loose-leafed cabbage dates back to the early 1800’s at least. It has beautiful, deep black-green leaves that can be 24” long. They are heavily savoyed. This Italian heirloom is popular in Tuscany and central Italy for making fabulous soups and stews. One of the most beautiful and flavorful types you can grow.
Honey Boat Delicata Squash $2.50
One of the sweetest squash varieties in existence. Oblong, Delicata-shaped squash have tan skin with green stripes. Excellent quality and produces early. Developed by Dr. James Baggett, Oregon State University.

 

 

Violetta Italia Cauliflower $2.50

Large healthy plants produce nice-sized, beautiful purple heads that turn bright green when cooked; very tasty. A fine Italian variety.
Romanesco Italian Broccoli

The true and popular Italian heirloom with spiraling, apple-green heads that are so superbly flavored. This variety is widely grown in northern Italy. A must with many of the finest chefs.
Red Express Cabbage $2.50
Newly released open-pollinated red cabbage, the first in many years! Specifically bred for Canada and northern tier of USA. Compact plants, extra early production of solid,
split-  resistant oval heads to only 2-3 pounds.

Introduced in the 1840’s, with tasty, 2-lb, sweet and flavorful, conical heads. This very early variety was sold commercially by Peter Henderson in the late 1860’s.
Sugar Ann Snap Pea $2.50
An early, edible-pod pea ideal for small gardens. Its short, bushy vines do not need support, and it produces about 10 days earlier than other snap peas. Delicious pods are a joy sauteed, fresh or steamed. An AAS winner from 1984.
Red Ball Turnip $3.00
In the Annals of American Vegetable Varieties, William Warner Tracy in 1902 makes mention of a “scarlet red turnip” which was called “Dark Red Ball”. Our offering called “Red Ball” is reputed to be an old heirloom from Northern India. We are told that it is a uniform and bright red turnip that should be very easy to grow. Both the leaves and root are edible. If you like turnips, this should be a new one on your list. Definitely show worthy if you grow them big!

 

Siamese Dragon Stir Fry Blend $3.00

All the best Asian greens for stir-frying and steaming. A mix of many of the greens that I have enjoyed in Thailand. The rich flavor of these greens is incredible when lightly cooked and seasoned with garlic and Thai peppers. This formula mix is perfect for market growers. Also pick the greens in the “baby stage” for a tangy salad mix. We have been getting great comments from market growers about this mix.

Cilantro Slo-Bolt $2.50

(Coriandrum sativum) This is a slow bolting version of Cilanto/Coriander that produces flavorful leaves over a longer period.

 

 

Perpetual Spinach $2.00

Belongs to the same species as chard and beets, but it has distinctive differences. The taste is more like a true spinach than ordinary chard, and the leaves look like spinach too—flatter and more pointed than chard, with slimmer stems. Very longstanding in the garden, yielding from late spring through autumn if planted early. Seldom bolts during its first year.

 

European Mesclun Mix Salad $3.00

Grow this mix of greens for one of the tastiest salads ever! Flavors range from sweet-mild to sour-hot-tangy, and colors come in red, purple, yellow, and green. Colorful lettuce, radicchio, arugula, endive, orach, mizuna, kale, mustard, corn salad and more. A favorite with market growers.
