To continue our series of seed giveaways, we’re thrilled to offer a giveaway from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. It is always such a delight when their catalog arrives in the mail – it is absolutely stunning! Baker Creek prides themselves on having rare varieties with great flavor and nutrition. As usual, this year’s 21st annual catalog is full of colorful heirlooms with descriptions about their origins and how they can be used. In the front of the catalog, the Gettle family mentions that they are especially pleased to offer many new corn varieties this year as they have been working hard for several years to keep these varieties pure from toxic, GMO pollen. I especially love the look of the Glass Gem Corn.
Baker Creek has the biggest collection of open pollinated seeds in the U.S., which is beneficial because you can save seeds from vegetables grown from open pollinated seeds (unlike hybrids and GMOs). So, if you plant them now, you can enjoy these seeds for many years to come! Learn more about Baker Creek in Deborah’s post from last year.
