Default Seed catalog

Need some advice on where to purchase garden vegetable seeds and perennial plants. I have used Burpee Catalog in the past. I want to grow more herbs this coming year also.

We ordered from Pinetree Garden (< clicky links >) Jung Seed Company. Pinetree is very reasonably priced and good quality, and their order has already arrived. Time to get out to the "greenhouse"!

I would like to have some asparagus starts that can be harvested this year. Who sells them, anyone know?

Ouch . . . crowns that old are gonna be expensive and I'm not sure they'd even be guaranteed. Let me do a little research . . .

It's been so long since we planted any, I'd about forgotten, but the one year plants are the best to plant since they suffer less transplant shock. They wouldn't be harvested this year, but could be harvested lightly next year.

I was kind of hoping the Amish would have some, but haven't been able to get over there to check. I love asparagus but don't want to wait three years to eat it, lol.

That would be the best place to look . . . but even if you have to settle for 1-year-old crowns, you could harvest it lightly NEXT spring. But for this year, you need to let those roots grow deep down into the soil so they can sustain for the next 20 years! This is definitely a long term investment!
