Seed Savers 2010 Yearbook
The Seed Savers Exchange (SSE) it's definitely worth taking a few moments to check out. Besides being one of the best sources for organic seed in the midwest they run a seed exchange between members keeping rare and unique varieties of edible plants around for future generations. This year there are over 700 members listing 13,571 different varieties of plants! There are 4,639 varieties of Tomato alone!
While I have been a member for a couple years now, this is my first year as a listed member. I'm MN VI D in the SSE Yearbook. This year I am offering 3 types of garlic, and if all goes will I will be listing more next year! Flipping through the 500 page yearbook really gets us excited about planting the garden in the spring. Ultimately we decided to request seeds from 18 other members. We'll be trying out some unusual variates of tomatoes, peppers, garlic (for fall 2010), pod peas, kale, wheat, eggplant and brussels sprouts. Yum!
