RE: Christy’s New Year’s Resolution – check out Helen Atthowe’s book that inspired it.
Here are some of the seeds Christy mentioned in the podcast:
Lila Lu Carrots – purple skin that goes deep on an orange carrot. Beautiful and purple even when peeled! That’s a great trait. Sweet and uniform in size.
Vereduna Alba Beets – White beets with a slight pink tinge that won’t stain your cutting board. Eat them raw or cooked. Freeze them for use later in the year.
Maiden’s Gold Tomato – we’re suckers for orange tomatoes. They tend to be sweeter than their red counter parts. This one is new from SeedSavers Exchange. Give it a try.
Who Gets Kissed Sweet Corn – with a name like that, you have to try it. White and yellow kernels on the same ear. What’s not to love?
Dark Night Scabiosa – deep wine-colored blossoms are a great contrast in any garden. Put this on your list to grow next spring.
Happy holidays, gardenerds. We’ll see in you 2024 for another great gardening year!
