I am much more of a gardener in theory than I am in practice. I love starting seeds, and watching tiny plants push their way through soil toward some great destiny as a big pot of ratatouille. But then the rest of gardening is still pretty hit or miss with me. I forget to water. I forget to harvest. I don't like bugs. I can't find my gloves, I hate weeds. I accidentally squished a grub and now I'm too grossed out to continue digging. It's hot.
This year I'm going to try and cool it on the excuses and complaining, and make gardening a priority. It's good for my health, and my organic garden is good for the environment. Of course, I'll start with good seeds.
If you're in the market for an heirloom garden of your own (big or small), I thought I would do you a favor and round up some seed sources for you. The following links will take you to the free catalog order form for each of the seed companies listed. If you know of more sources to share, please feel free to include them in the comments. Happy dreaming of those future tomato sandwiches!
