A Few Good Plants

 Went to one of my favorite garden supply centers today to pick up seed starting supplies and low and behold they had Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds.  Not as many as offered on the website, but they had three that I wanted to get and forgot!  So to finally round out the garden we'll add in these beauties. 

 
Five Color Silverbeet
A beautiful chard, its colors are brilliant (pink, yellow, orange, red and white). This chard originated in Australia. Very mild, ornamental, and tasty. Great for market growers and specialty markets. Pretty enough to plant in the flower garden, so delicious, one of our favorite greens! (Sold in stores as "Bright Lights")

Carrot - Tonga di Parigi

The round, 19th-century Parisian heirloom carrots are harvested at 1"-2"; uniform and deep orange. The flavor is excellent and very sweet. These tender carrots are very popular for marketing. Plant thick for bunching.
