Alot, huh? That list doesn't include herbs and flowers because I am not done picking out seeds for them yet. The veg that I chose this year is all heirloom, mostly purchased from Baker Creek Seed Co. The very best of the best. I may still add to the list if I come across some cool plants somewhere. The only place I can really imagine that happening is at Fiske Gardens... the ONLY place I have found any plants worth buying within 50 miles. Good stuff, and if you're lucky, you might get some gardening advice from a Mass Hort hero.
