Variety List

Here are the vegetable varieties I plan to use this year.┬áSome are from my own seed, some from reliable local seed savers, others from regional seed companies. Almost all are OP (open pollinated) so you can save seed from them. The few hybrid varieties are for vegetables where the hybrid varieties give a substantial advantage (sweet corn, eggplant, sweet peppers, squash) and/or are so hard to save seed from that no-one is likely to do it anyway (cauliflower, Brussels sprouts). None of these varieties are GMO, of course. (If you’re confused about the difference between GMO, Hybrid and OP, read this.)
