Seed Offer – OPEN

January 13, 2009

I have a few seed offers if anyone is interested:

Red Malabar Spinach
60 – 70 days.  An Indian heirloom growing to 10 – 15 feet tall with deep red stems and red-tinged leaves.  Leaves are delicious fresh or cooked and stay sweet and tender all summer.  This plant loves the heat and produces steadily if picked regularly.  Perfect for large containers as an ornamental.  Pre-soak seeds for 24 hours before planting.  Direct sow outdoors 1/4″ deep and thin to 3 – 4″ apart.  Germination is slow and erratic.

Pumpkin “Jack O’Lantern”
75 days. The smooth firm skin of this bright orange pumpkin is ideal for carving at Halloween.  Sow outdoors in late May and June.  Can be started indoors in paper or fibre pots 3 weeks earlier.  Before planting, dig in well rotted manure or organic matter.  Plant 1″ deep at 6 seeds per hill at a hill distance of 8′.  Thin to 4 plants per hill.

Waltham Butternut Winter Squash
85 days.  An excellent squash, weighing on average 1.5-2.3 kgs (3.5-5 lbs). Creamy-yellow coloured fruit has a small seed cavity and a bulbous end with solid, smooth skin and deep orange flesh. A large, vigorous growing vine and heavy producer.  Plant 1″ deep.

Boothby’s Blonde Cucumber
55 days. An heirloom white cucumber with tinges of yellow and green originally from Livermore, Maine.  Best harvested in the 3″ – 3.5″ range.  Direct sow after danger of frost has passed.

All seeds have been saved by me from my garden.  Depending on interest, I’ll either send out the seeds myself or ask for an SASE.

    Hi Kathy,

    Have been enjoying your blog after seeing it in your sig in one of your post another Canadian forum. I would be more than happy to send a sase if the offer of the malabar spinach, waltham butternut squash and boothby’ blond cukes is still open.

    Hi Kathy

    I tried winter sowing for the first time last year and I am hooked 🙂
    Over the past two weekends I have been busy planting seeds in the large plastic salad containers and look forward to all the snow that they are buried under to disappear.
    I would be interested in the seeds of the squash, spinach and cucumbers, should there be any left.
    Thanks Wendy
