2014 Gift Guide, Day Seven
November 30, 2014
Farm to table is so last year; the new movement is seed to table. If you really care about where your food comes from, you start at the beginning, with soil and seeds.
For most of human history, farmers raised regional plants adapted to the local soil and climate. The idea that we can all grow anything, anywhere, is a completely modern notion – and one that makes very little sense. Organic gardeners are beginning to understand that the sensible course is to plant seeds bred to thrive where they are planted.
Enter Fruition Seeds. These are organically grown open pollinated seeds raised in the northeast and intended for northeast gardeners.
So if you're trying to think of a great gift for a passionate gardener in the cold northeastern climate, you'd have a hard time coming up with a better present. There are lots of possibilities – from single seed packets to special collections for picklers or people interested in medicinal herbs. There are salsa and salad collections, and this lovely group of seeds to kickstart an organic kitchen garden.

Thanks for the recognition of the importance of seeds in our food system and our work. We have a new pepper (Habanada- all the flavor and none of the heat) that we would like to share with you. I think will delight your culinary sensibilities. Get in touch so we can mail you plants when they are ready for shipping in May. https://www.fruitionseeds.com/SearchResults.asp?Cat=1995
