You may have seen them featured in the New York Times, Martha Stewart, or Oprah, but they’re finally here. Atlantic Avenue is excited to announce that we are selling Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. All seeds are non hybrid, non GMO, non treated, and non patented for over 100 years. Jere Gettle started his first Baker Creek Heirloom catalog in 1998 and it has since grown to offer the largest selection of rare, heirloom varities in the USA, including 1,450 Asian & European varieties. Unlike the majority of seed companies, Baker Creek has spent years networking with 150 small farms and collecting seeds while traveling abroad.
It may be winter, but the growing season isn’t too far away. Just after the new year our golden sweet peas or sweet peas chocolate streamers will be ready to be planted in your garden. January and February will be the time to start seeds indoors for seedlings to later transplant into the garden. Or, if you have a greenhouse go ahead and start some unusual cucumbers like the Mexican Sour Gherkin and have “fairy melons” this spring.
