More Seed Purchases

So, this past weekend I made a few more seed purchases. I enjoy receiving seed catalogs in the mail each Winter and there are so many quality seed companies that I want to support. For this reason I try to move my purchases around each year, buying from a few different sources each Spring. This year it was time to show some love to High Mowing Seed. They are a wonderful company based in Wolcott, Vermont. All of the seed that they offer is organic and non-GMO project verified.Plus, they ship all orders free with no minimum. How to you beat all of that! Here's what I ordered:

  • Winter Squash "Waltham Butternut" - 105 day; "Bell-shaped squash with smooth, easy-to-peel, buff colored skin and finely textured dark orange flesh. Know for its mild sweet flavor. Will keep well into the Winter if properly cured. This strain has been selected for uniformity of size, shape, and yields. "
  • Winter Squash "Delicata" - 95 days; "The only Winter Squash that can be eaten with the skin on, after baking or boiling. Our stain has been selected since 2001 for uniformity in color, shape and size as well as yield of sweet, soft-shelled fruit. Small oblong fruits are 1-1.5 lbs. each".
  • Winter Squash - "Crown Pumpkin" -100 days; "A delicious eating pumpkin with hard blue-grey skin and rich orange flesh. Superb sweet and nutty flavor. Once part of the Koanga Gardens collection of heritage seeds of New Zealand, Crown was nearly lost before we brought it back into production, improving the strain to better reflect its original characteristics. excellent Keeper".
  • Zinnia - "Country Fair Blend" - 75-90 days; 24-36" plants; "Warm-toned mix of pink, orange, purple, gold, cream, and scarlet blooms. An excellent cut flower that blooms until frost; the more you cut the more they grow.2-5" blooms ideal for boards and bouquets. Heat and disease tolerant. Attracts butterflies."
