Seed Trust now in Sedona, AZ has the Siberian tomato seeds collection and other nice heirlooms that you can save seeds from. Secure.seedtrust.com is their site.
Pinetree Garden Seeds is the source that I use to by seeds; they send small quantity packets and have many short season options. H-19 Little Leaf Cucumber is their variety that does well in pots. Bush Delicata Squash is the winter squash that can be grown in pots.
Johnny's Seeds from Vermont no longer has the Bluahilde pole bean. Sad! They do have a sale on Agro Row Cover right now, the 19 is what works best for extending season. Do check Peaceful Valley Farm Supply for Agro 19 also (and many other row covers) prices also - they are out of California so sometimes that really helps shipping costs.Find zucchini Bread recipe on the blog under recipes.
Our tour of Linda and Mark Giesecke's yesterday was wonderful. I am sure Linda needed a nap after fielding all the questions. Below are some of the answers to your questions, including the recipe for the yummy zucchini bread. She states that she used the yellow variety of zucchini which she prefers. Also other answers to questions.... the amaranth looking plant near the patio is actually red switch grass. Irish Spring soap was in the mesh bags to ward off deer. The anise hyssop was by the back patio door (tall plant with purple flowers) She uses the flowers in her salads. The samples in the basket were Egyptian onions aka walking onions. You plant the bulbs and next year you can eat the early stems or later pull up the bulbs and use like onions. As they age the plants bends over and sows the bulbs formed at the top. That is why they are called walking onions.
Look for the next tour on Saturday (another article)
