Digging through my Feedburner stats I noticed something strange. A past episode (#6) about selecting the right seeds for your garden popped up as the #1 most listened to episode. It is closing in quick on 1000 downloads! I wondered why this episode was so popular so I decided that rather than just reposting it that I would try to update it a bit with new things I’ve learned.
In this episode I discuss these aspects of selecting the right seeds…
*Seeds for your soil type. Why choosing a different variety of the same vegetable can be disastrous or serendipitous.
*Its obvious that climate is important in choosing but even more important is your microclimate.
*Why I don’t even include heirloom and GMO in my vocabulary when discussing seeds for the home garden.
*One more time…the difference between hybrid and OP. I’ll shut up now.
*Besides being more self-sufficient, recent evidence and old that support saving seeds as the best choice.
*Don’t take me so seriously. Why picking seeds and trying new things can be fun.
I give a shout out to a few of my friends and fellow bloggers. Check out the blogroll at the right of the page. These people are good people and infinitely more knowledgeable than I on a myriad of subjects.
