It’s bound to be an exciting year for the vegetable garden! In fact every year I get excited by the potential new varieties of seeds to try. The catalogs are full of amazing, mouthwatering, and delicious pictures and descriptions. (Don’t worry I’m not eating the catalog – although I’ll bet you thought about it too!) Whittling down the choices to a reasonable amount of seed for my garden and my budget is a challenge. I always like to add a few new plants to the vegetable garden. When I say new, I really mean new to me. I prefer to garden with heirlooms for their seed saving capabilities and what I believe is a tendency toward superior taste. Today’s hybrids tend to be bred for better travel or disease resistance and there isn’t as much focus on flavor.
So here are a few of the new choices I’m adding to my vegetable garden this year:

There’s a few of the new for 2012. There are several more on order that I’ll probably mention in future posts as they grow, as I plant them, or as I find something interesting to share! All these plants can be found at Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds.
