Planning Garden 2012

January 18, 2012


Yes, I know it's January and it's cold, but what better time to start thinking about Spring and gardening! I'm especially excited about this year's Culinary Garden because we're going to be buying the majority of our seeds from D. Landreth Seed Company of New Freedom, PA. Sounds pretty normal, right? You're right, but what makes the fact that we're buying our garden seed from a company based 30 minutes from the property is that D. Landreth is America's Oldest Seed House. They've been selling seeds since 1784. So, not only will we be using their seeds in our Culinary Garden, but we'll also be selling their seeds at The Carriage House Market! I'm ready for the warm Spring weather and somehow leafing through seed catalogs makes me feel like Spring is just around the corner. Even if you're going to buy your garden seeds from The Carriage House Market, which I heavily encourage you to do, I would also encourage you to look up Landreth Seeds and purchase a seed catalog. They're $5  for the catalog and well worth price just based on the sheer beauty of the catalog. A perfect gift for any gardener! Take a minute and soak in all the amazing varieties of produce we'll be growing in 2012. I can't wait to get my hands in the dirt!
