seed list

diy newspaper seedpots with newly planted seeds

I barely have 150 sq. ft. in the community garden and some pots in my north-facing patio. I don't actually know where I'll plant most of these, but if you visited this page in your own accord you also know the temptation when looking at a seed catalogue.

This list is nowhere near in the same league as experienced gardeners; 2012 is the first year I am taking gardening seriously. This page will be updated every time I acquire more seeds. For my own records, and to serve as a reality check, here is my current seed list. I practice crop rotation and interplanting, so I organized my seeds in the following categories:

Leek 'Monstrous Carentan'
Onion 'Annual Bunching'

Green Pak Choy 'Ching Chiang'

Bean Bush 'Contender'
Bean Bush ' Dragon Tongue'
Bean Bush 'Black Calypso'
Lima Bean 'Henderson's Bush'
Peas Bush 'Green Arrow'

Winged Bean 'Tender Green'
Yard Long Bean 'Red Noodle'

Sensitive Plant

Basil Cinnamon

Basil Genovese
Basil Lemon

Basil Purple
Basil Sweet
Basil Thai
Parsley 'Flat Leaf Parsley'

Lettuce 'Speckles'
Lettuce 'Tom Thumb'
Mesclun 'Mild Blend'
Mesclun 'Valentine'

Mache Corn Salad
Perpetual Spinach
Swiss Chard 'Bright Lights'
Water Convolvulus 'South Green'

All the seeds are organic and were acquired from companies that do not sell genetically modified seeds. In all cases, I tried to get the heirloom and heritage varieties that would suit Vancouver's wet weather. I also tried to get varieties that would be best suited for small spaces.

On the other hand, there are exceptions including Water Convolvulus (aka Kang Kong) and Winged Bean (aka Sigarilyas), which are vegetables I ate growing up in Philippines. I'm not fully convinced I will succeed in growing tropical plants in Canada, but for the sake of nostalgia...why not?

Below are the list of seed companies:
