Dear Gardening Friends,
Terra Edibles is proud to offer a wide selection of seed for heirloom tomatoes, beans and other popular vegetables, as well as herbs, flowers and aromatic sweet peas. All are organically-grown and packaged for small garden growers. Many varieties have been grown out by certified organic growers these are indicated with a ‘CO’ beside their name. Each seed packet is only $3.00 (plus taxes).
For 2013, we have many new varieties of vegetables, including organic garlic (in season), long beans, gourds, amaranth grain, okra, a mustard mesclun mix, strawberry popping corn and our new tomatoes for this year: Alicante, Black Zebra, Cherry Falls, Costoluto Fiorentino, Mille Plum, Orange Banana, Osu Blue and Peking Panda. In the ‘Seed Extras’ section, we now offer dessicant packets for those who need to keep their seed dry.
Our seeds are available in packets designed for the home gardener. Tomato and pepper packets contain 50100 seeds; bean and pea packets: 3050; most flowers and herbs: 100+. The seeds per packet may vary somewhat due to size, type and availability. The packets themselves are plain kraft envelopes with label and growing instructions stickered on we do not spend excessive money on coloured packaging believing that the value should be in the seed - not the packet.
We still offer our Seeds for Survivala special boxed kit which includes twelve seed packets, a Tomato Bulletin and instructions on how to plant, harvest and save your own seedsgreat for the new gardener and for those who want to provide an abundance of healthy home-grown food for their family.
If you are in the Quinte/Belleville area, visit the Village Green store and greenhouse in Foxboro where we maintain a fine selection of locally-made and natural products (e.g. soaps, candles, food items and much more). In the spring, we offer thousands of tomato, herb and perennial seedlings for sale (sorry, we do not ship seedlings). The store is open year-round Tuesdays to Saturdays, 95. If you cannot make it to Foxboro, join us at one of the ‘Seedy’ events (
, Picton in February and March, go to www.seeds.ca for a list of seedy events) or at the Peterborough Garden Show (April 1214).
Happy gardening and good health to you and yours in 2013,
Karyn Wright, Don McKay .... and our scattered family.
