Get Heirloom Seeds At Flint Farmers’ Market

It was just the other day that I wrote a post about getting your gardens ready.  Now there’s one more thing you might want to consider before deciding what to grow this year.  Heirloom seeds.  Remember the tomatoes your grandmother used to grow?  Or the wonderful squash you got from the farmer down the road?  You can now grow them yourself.

The newest tenant at the Flint Farmers’ Market is “Survival Heirlooms” and they feature a wide variety of heirloom seeds.  With the advent of hybrid seeds, the older open-pollinated varieties are getting harder to find.  While the hybrids are genetically engineered to grow better, they just can’t match the taste of heirloom varieties that have been around for decades, and in some cases, centuries.

Survival Heirlooms will celebrate their grand opening tomorrow (April 16th) inside the Flint Farmers’ Market.  I’ll be saving a space in my garden for some heirlooms this year!  The hard part will be deciding what to plant….
