Edible Antiques in the SHED - How's YOUR garden grow?

Edible Antiques in the SHED - How's YOUR garden grow?

In the SHED we recently discovered that all seeds are not created equal!  We were looking for heirloom & heritage seeds to start in our raised square foot gardens this spring.  We recently met Stacey from Edible Antiques - A creative and inspiring small seed company.  All of her seeds are grown in Prince Edward County and are therefore, regionally adapted to our climate and soil conditions. Weather here is somewhat extreme compared to our surrounding areas because we are an island (which is the giant peninsula in the middle of Lake Ontario) so these plants often experience extreme cold, extreme heat, extreme rain or extreme droughtdepending on the time of the season!  Long story short…these seeds are fairly hardy!
