The Passing Down of Heirlooms: Heirloom Vegetables.
OK so I know it's not QUITE that time yet, but I can't help it and I've begun thinking about a spring garden. It is never to early to start planning, so I thought I'd share some very special tidbits about Heirloom Vegetables that I found oh-so interesting.
An "heirloom" variety simply means the seed is old, open pollinated, is easily grown, and is considered to be of high quality.
I stumbled across this wonderful site that lists the top 9 "easy to grow" heirloom vegetables, and it has some great little illustrations of the veggies to enjoy!
