99 CENT SEED SALE


Tepary Beans were used for many generations by many Native American cultures as a staple and reliable food crop. 
Over the years they were selected to be more drought tolerant and heat tolerant.  (However, they do not like wet heavy clay soils.  They need good drainage.)


This huge pepper was selected for heavy yields and large robust plant structures to support lots of peppers.


Plant produces high yields of flavorful pigeon peas. Pigeon Peas can be served in the same manner as green peas or cowpeas, combining them with other vegetables.


Fodder beets have been around since the 1400s if not earlier.  These beets were prized as nutritious animal feed that was easy to store.  Fodder beets are hardy, adaptable and palatable.
Red Mammoth Mangel Beets produce an incredible mass of edible beet leaves and a large root
up to 20 pounds or more in size!



A fantastic onion variety from a small Mediterranean town in Italia. 
Red Torpedos are long, red-purple, spindle-shaped onions with a mild, sweet flesh.  Torpedos are great for planting in small garden spaces as you can get far more in a smaller space than when compared to other onions.



Pre-1900.  High yielding Dent corn. 10-13 ft. sturdy stalks are often used to support pole beans. 6-9 in. ears, 12-18 rows/ ear, 1-2 ears/stalk. Grows well in drier areas (drought-tolerant). Makes great corn bread and polenta as well as attractive corn cob pipes.  Superior for grinding into flour, or for roasting ears.


Mammoth Red is the best clover for deficient soils.
Mammoth red is tall, growing at 2-3'.  It is quick-growing clover. Plant in the spring, summer or fall, alone or with grain/grass. Mammoth red will grow in more acid soil (pH 5.0-6.0) than other clovers if lime is applied at seeding time. This is a popular biennial used for Nitrogen addition and hay crops.


Leaves are deeply and closely curled. Flavor is better than most curled varieties.  Double and triple leaves are held high away from the ground, keeping them clean.

Earth Day planting!
Our Sale starts TODAY and ends April 10th.
Seeds Listed below are $.99 to $2 each

 Many of you have asked about growing different varieties from seed so we'll continue to share our Growing Tips & Videos
EARTH DAY Info

From The Old Farmer's Almanac,

Ever wondered how Earth Day started? This observance arose from an interest in gathering national support for environmental issues.
In 1970, San Francisco activist John McConnell and Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson separately asked Americans to join in a grassroots demonstration.
McConnell chose the spring equinox (March 21, 1970) and Nelson chose April 22.
Millions of people participated, and today Earth Day continues to be widely celebrated with events on both dates.
The most common practice of celebration is to plant new trees for Earth Day.

NEW 99 Cent SEED SALE Posted on 23 Feb 17:42 , 0 comments

~~~SALE EXTENDED THRU MARCH 2ND~~~
I love these announcements!!!
We've added MORE new heirloom seeds @ Mary's Heirloom Seeds!


Greens and squash are a few of our garden favorites.  They are easy to grow and usually offer a tremendous harvest.  Swiss Chard for example can be harvested for months (even a year).  Our squash is usually so prolific that we are constantly giving it away by the bucketful!

Take a look at these beautiful new varieties. 

They're only 99 cents a pack thru MARCH 1st.

COCONUT COIR PELLETS are also on sale thru March 15

 

45 days.  Bibb is a fabulous tasting lettuce that is crisp, clean and easy to grow.  Bibb will hold longer in the heat than  Buttercrunch Bibb, yet still grows quickly in our cool weather.



 90 days.  Banana Melon produces a fruit that is long (18"-20") and shaped sort of like a torpedo.  Not what you would normally think of as a melon shape.  Fruit can weigh in excess of 5lbs. It has blue-grey skin that turns yellow as it matures.  Banana melons are smooth with very little netting.  In 1889 it was commonly available at farmer's markets in Philadelphia, New York and Boston.



An early ball-head type heirloom cabbage, Copenhagen Market is an excellent cabbage  that has been an favorite of gardeners, market growers and cabbage fans all over the world.  Copenhagen Market has literally set the standard as the model for all commercial cabbage varieties developed since.
 
Copenhagen Market produces a heavy yield of 4 to 5 pound, 7 inch round heads of cabbage.  Height of the plant is about 12-14" and width is about 25".



(Indeterminate) Heirloom from farmers in a Lebanese hill town. Huge pink beefsteak tomato: fruits typically weigh 16-24 oz., or even larger when well grown. A good choice for a gardener’s boast or county fair entry. Has a multidimensional sweet flavor that seems to be expressed best in northern areas. In southern areas the quality is more variable. Good foliage disease resistance.



55 days.  This patty pan type of squash dates back to the early 1900s.  The fruits are a greyish-green tint and have deeply scalloped edges.
Benning's Green Tint Scallop Squash can get pretty big but they are best harvested around 3-4 inches in diameter.



55 days.  Sugar Ann is considered one of the best early snap peas around.        
Dwarf vines only reach 2' long (not a bush), but are loaded with sweet, crisp, 2 1/2" peas.  Perfect for those with limited planting space.  We simply cannot get enough of these for stir fries.  They are so crisp and sweet we eat them raw in salads as well.


2 VARIETIES that aren't NEW but we've decided to offer
on sale as well thru MARCH 1st.
