April 5 column

Melon - Eden Gem
Happy Easter, everybody! Here is a link to my column in today's edition of The Spokesman-Review: Heirloom seeds bear benefits of history.

This one is all about heirloom vegetables and why heirlooms are so vital to both our heritage and the diversity we should have in our gardens. I hope you will find it interesting and informative.

Onion - Wethersfield Red
Kale - Nero di Toscana (aka, Dinosaur or Lacinato)
Here are photos from some of the heirloom vegetable varieties I mention in today's column. They are all courtesy of Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds.

Lettuce - Merveille des Quatres Saison
Summer Squash - Zucchino Rampicante

Tomato - Henderson's Pink Ponderosa
