Farmer Matt Can’t Wait to Spring

Something tells me harvest time will be extra colorful this year. This years batch of seeds, mostly heirloom seeds (e.g. no genetically modified seeds) cost me ~$80, but the resulting produce will be worth a minimum of 10 times that. Even if you’re a farmer’s market novice, you’ll know the specialty heirlooms — the Orangeglo watermelons, the Black Cherry tomatoes, Sugar Pie pumpkins, etc. — are fairly hard to find since many farmers go with well known varieties only, if they do bring them to market they generally sell out before 9am and they’re always priced well above the local produce average.

Order #1: Baker Street Heirloom Seeds. (I probably went a little overboard on the heirloom tomatoes.)

Order #2: Botanical Interests
