Timely nuggets of information and ideas we want to share with you.

Row 7 Seed Company sells seeds with the goal of improving and enhancing the flavor of vegetables.  I saw an interview with the founder, and he explained that vegetable growers focus on making produce look beautiful with a lengthy shelf life, but along the way they focus less on what produce tastes like and its nutrition levels fell by the wayside.  Row 7 collaborates with chefs, farmers and breeders and eaters to make produce taste better than any of us have ever experienced.

From their website:

Every single seed we sell is:
— Certified organic
— non-GMO
— Unpatented
— Produced in the U.S.

I have ordered a selection of their seeds to try and grow next summer.  I can’t wait!

Seed packets range from $3.75 to $6.25.
