I placed my seed order tonight from Territorial Seed. I checked around a bit at the local seed racks but I didn't see the ones I wanted so I decided to go ahead and place an order. There was no sales tax since Territorial is located in Oregon but the shipping was about 1/3 of the cost of the order. But it will be fun growing the vegetables I want to try.
I ordered 3 different types of beans; Maxibel French haricot beans, Etna shelling bean and Helda romano beans. I was disappointed that I couldn't find Goldmarie; a yellow romano pole bean. I did see a couple of providers on the web but I didn't want to order just one seed packet.
For salads, I ordered three types of lettuce. Nevada lettuce which several of the farmers grew last year at University Farmer's Market. It lasts a long time after harvested and G can use for his sandwiches. Sunset - a red leafed lettuce and Mascara, a red oak leaf. To go along with the lettuce, we also ordered Orient Express cuke and Momotaro Tomato. We'll get some other tomatoes plants later in the year but G wanted to grow this specific tomato.
We're soaking our snap peas tonight and G will start them tomorrow indoors. I'll plant the starts out in a week or so.
