Vote for Your Favorite Heirloom Seed Varieties

I grew my first heirloom tomatoes back in 2006.  I wondered if they would taste differently than the tomatoes I had grown before.  As I took the first bite of a Black Cherry still warm from the sun, I wondered why I had waited so long to plant heirlooms in our garden.

Since then, I have tried heirloom lettuce, radishes, onions, potatoes, squash, beans, berries, and anything else I can get my hands on.  They have all amazed me with their taste, production, and vigor.  It's no wonder that these seeds have stood the test of time.

I love heirlooms so much that I am going to offer a collection of our favorite seeds for sale in my Etsy shop so that you can give them a try in your own gardens.  All of the seeds will be non-GMO, heirloom varieties. 

Each packet will arrive with its own historic profile and a recipe that we enjoy at our family table here at 1840 Farm.  There will be opportunities for you to share photos and news from your garden throughout the growing season with me and the other members of The 1840 Farm Online Community.  

I have chosen some of my favorite heirloom varieties to be considered for our 2013 collection.  Now I'd like to learn about your favorite varieties.  So, take a moment and visit and cast your votes for the seeds you would like to see included in this year's collection.  Your answers will help shape the collection.  If you have a favorite that you would like to see added to the list, leave me a comment.  I can't wait to see the results!

Visit 1840 Farm and cast your vote or view the current results of the poll.
