heirloom fruit seedsMy nighttime garden adventures reveal a shocking secret about heirloom seeds. I am dumbfounded at the hardiness of organic heirloom seeds from Seed to Plate. A potentially devastating canine rampage in the middle of my raised bed is no match for these indomitable spheres. Featuring my pup Maya.

Usually, planting three or four seeds in place of every one is done to make sure at least one of them will turn into a vegetable plant. The strongest babies in that area are identified and the rest are usually removed. It seems that every single one of the heirloom seeds have begun to show up through the compost. Even the seeds where my god had dug at all the mud around them have grown, and not just in the raised bed.

As promised, here is the link to the free educational documentary on organic sustainable permaculture “Back To Eden”
