What kind of seeds do you offer?

All seed guaranteed pure. As often as possible, the seed we sell is grown on our property. When it is not grown on our property, it comes from trusted growers.

All seed is open pollinated heirlooms (NEVER hybrid, NEVER genetically modified seeds!)

All photos were taken in my garden! I only offer vegetable varieties that I have trialed and tested. If I don't love the vegetable, we don't sell it. MOST seed varieites don't make the cut. For example, I just finished a winter trail of 20 varieties of peas. Out of those 20, I will be selling the top three only. 

How many seeds are in each packet?

Because every packet is filled by hand, there is some variation. Below is a general guide. Please note that the seed count for rare varieties will be lower than the estimate below.

Winter Green Jewel Romaine Lettuce comes 50-70 seeds per pack):
Corn: about 50 seeds per pack
Lettuce: 150-200 seeds per pack

Will these seeds grow in north Canada? Alaska?

The seeds marked as winter varieties are your best bet for short season growing, and are proven to thrive in cold frames and hot beds to extend the season with no artificial heat or electricity. (For winter gardening directions, see my book, Backyard Winter Gardening. My growing season is 92 days and we live at 5,000 feet. Test them in your garden and let us know! We are particularly interested in seeing your photos of your cold frame gardens, hot bed gardens, and winter gardens. Please share your photos with our customers by emailing them to me at!

Will these seeds grow in Florida? The Midwest? East Coast? West Coast?

Yes! Over the past several years we have sold seeds to customers in all 50 states and all over Canada, and we have heard positive results! Try them out and let us know your results!
