1992 Terra Edibles has offered open-pollinated heirloom seeds
that have been produced organically. Many are grown here in Foxboro,
but we do purchase some seed from other organic growers to maintain
a diverse variety of hardy stock. At this time, the Terra Edibles'
fields are 'in transition' with 'certified organic' status pending.
Foxboro is a charming
little village located just north of Belleville, Ontario. Customers
are always welcome to purchase Terra Edibles seed directly from
our retail store, the Village Green, located on the main street
of Foxboro. And during May and June, many of our tomatoes are
available in seedling form.
The number of seeds
per packet varies with the type of vegetable or flower. Generally,
there are about 100 seeds in each tomato packet, 30-50 seeds of
beans and peas and 50-60 of the cucurbits. Flowers and herb numbers
vary depending on the size of the seed and its availability.
