My allocation of seeds from the Heritage Seed Library have shown up as a pre-Christmas treat. I got my top six choices, plus a "lucky dip" option which always seems to consist of tomato seeds (which is fine by me - given my addiction to growing the things!).
I got the following packets:
Mangel Yellow Intermediate - this is a beet, a yellow one. I've grown Burpees Golden in past years but was interested to try this variety
Squash Lady Godiva - an interesting one, this, because the seeds lack an outer coating and are therefore good for eating
Carrot Afghan Purple - I've grown every other shade but this will be my first purple
Lettuce Liller - I have no recollection of why I chose this one, but you can never have too much lettuce seed, in my opinion
Leek Walton Mammoth - my leeks tend to the small and tasty rather than the big and showstopping, so I thought I'd give this one a go
Pea Mr Bethell's Purple Podded - yes, I do love growing purple things, don't I?
And the lucky dip ...
Tomato Peremoga - know nothing about this one, will have to dig out the HSL catalogue to see what I am letting myself in for ...
If anyone has some intelligence on any of my seedy charges, do let me know ...
