    Default New seeds for me

    Was at a new feed and seed store the day before yesterday and found some good seeds, Livingston seeds had
    Bloody butcher corn got three small packs to start a seed stash, this variety came highly recommended to me by a Native mentor, then Blue Miniature corn ,three packets of that. Three packets of golden zucchini, and one packet of swan gourd seeds. Just adding to it (my seed stash) mostly things I have never seen before

    Experimenting with new seeds is fun but I keep them away from my main tried and true crops to prevent cross pollination. Just incase....

    Always a good plan to look for better varieties at your locale, i think. I never get the same seeds, but yea mostly for fun also.

    cross-pollination can be a serious problem when planting a garden , especially if you plant heirloom seeds close to seeds you buy from seed companies that may be GMO .
