While Winter is just beginning, one issue that always pops up for many of us is how to prepare now for the Spring planting season. Amy Manning, of My Suburban Homestead, joins us today to give us a few quick tips and tricks for getting our selves prepared for the bounty ahead.

Ordering Garden Seeds by Amy Manning

This time of year, my mailbox is beginning to fill up with all of the lovely seed catalogs I’m signed up to receive. I love sitting down in the winter, browsing through the catalogs’ new varieties of seeds, daydreaming about the next garden’s possibilities. I love finding new varieties.

This is a dried black bean variety that I’ve been growing for two years. I just love the purple blooms. You can purchase this seed here.

These are another dry bean variety, called Scarlet Runner beans. Most gardeners grow them only for their aesthetic value and the fact that they attract hummingbirds. But if you let the beans grow and dry them, they are absolutely delicious.

This year, I’ve already gotten most of my orders in. I don’t want to admit to just how much money I’ve spent… I guess you could say I’m a vegetable seed addict! But I rarely spend money on clothes or gadgets, so I allow myself to splurge when it comes to growing healthy food for my family (and, of course, food for all of our pets and livestock).

These are some of the tomato varieties that are new to me that I will be growing next year. Most of them were purchased through Baker Creek.

Check out this pumpkin! Gorgeous. I can’t wait to try it.

When I first saw the picture on this seed pack, I thought it was a lavender. But it’s a purple broccoli! Many sources I’ve read said that this variety is easier to grow than regular broccoli, and tastes just as good.

This is a variety of pumpkin that is grown for its naked seeds, meaning there is no shell. I read about it on this blog, and am excited to try it.

These are some of the seeds that I ordered through an Italian seed website (listed below). Their seed packs have beautiful photos and are awfully inspiring. I guess they must be aware of that, as they sent me this huge poster of all of their seed varieties. I attempted to photograph this poster for you, but was not exactly sure how to go about it. My dog, Porter, offered to pose for you.

The following is a list of my favorite seed sources:

Baker creek
Fedco seeds
Franchi Grow Italian
Johnny’s Selected Seeds
Nichols Garden Nursery
Peaceful Valley
Pinetree Garden Seeds
Seeds of Change
Seed Savers Exchange
Stokes Seeds
Territorial Seed Company
Turtle Tree

Happy Gardening!

The Mitla Black bean variety that is listed above is available through Seeds of Change.

I just wanted to let you know I was going down the list of seed supplies and ordering catalogues. I am not sure which of the two sites it was, but one of these two sites downloaded a very nasty virus to my computer and now I keep getting pop ups that will not stop… seeds of change or seed savers exchange.

Just thought people may want to know. I am trying to get the virus quanitined as we speak, but I am so far unsuccessful.

We just planted our first seedlings in our greenhouse–so excited! We are ordering more from Southern Exposure, but love Baker Creek, too. They put out such a beautiful catalog, it’s hard to not buy one of everything pictured!

Just wanted to say that the virus from the site is terrible. I had an entire system crash. Please be careful as I would hate for anyone to have to pay the money to get the nasy virus removed.
