Seeds and plants and starts

Jocelyne Sewell

We moved to Vernon in July 2005. After clearing the junipers and getting rid of most of the grass, the garden keeps on growing. I have been saving seeds for years. I have a dozen rain barrels and 7 composters which are the source of the fertilizer for the garden. I grow fruits and vegetables and freeze and can a good supply to go through winter. My favorite seeds to start are tomato seeds. I grow about 25 varieties every year.
