Heirloom Garden Collection

The word Heirloom comes from Medieval Europe when someone apprenticing under a master weaver would eventually become the "Heir" of the "Loom" and all the knowledge and business connections that would go with it.  We have come to use the terms "heirloom" to describe something of antiquity that still exists and we treasure it.  This certainly applies to the heirloom varieties of yesteryear that still posses the flavors, colors and aromas that have endeared them to generations before us.  

This is a collection of some of our favorite heirloom seeds that have found a happy home in our gardens and in our hearts.

Collection Includes the following (varieties are hyperlinked to product description):

Pepe de Rola, Pole Bean- a pretty gem shared with us at a farmer's market

• Beet, Lutz Green Leaf -  A classic heirloom with remarkably tall light green tops that can easily reach 18-22”.  Roots are elongated , rather than ball shaped.
