Time to order seeds

Wow, it is time to order seeds again. For those of you who grow your own garden plants, I bet you already have some growing. I know the commercial growers have but the growers in the deep south have had a real struggle with the weather this winter.

Me, I like to deal with our many good plant vendors. They do some things with plants for transplanting I probably wouldn't get done.

I just ordered enough farm seed to go into the loan fund already. Many farmers spend many thousands of dollars on their farm seed.

First time ever, I am sharing my favorites:

Field corn, First Choice 58, excellent 109 day hybrid
Soybeans, Steritz Ohio Certified Jacob Soybeans but trying some Stine and CropLan Liberty Link soybeans this year
Wheat, hard to pick, they are so close but I chose Crop Production Systems 9122 from the AgriPro Breeding program to bump my favorite Ohio Certified Hopewell
Barley, Certifed Thoroughbred
Sweet corn, Vision White, Avalon Yellow, Providence BiColor, all great corns, never had a failure or dissatisfied customer
Green Beans, so many good ones, really like the Benton's I had but Blue Lake is a consistent favorite along with Top Crop
Tomatoes, probably Big Boy but so many good ones available!
Potatoes Russett but Kennebec is easier to raise here and who can deny Yukon Gold or Pontiac Reds.
Onions, yellow. I like all onions, Vidalia are favorites but I can't grow them here.

This list will probably get modifed before you read it or read it the next time. Seed selection is that difficult but stay with the mainstays, you won't go wrong. I always test out new varieties carefully. Takes 3 years to really decide, buy then there is a new great one out to look at.


  1. You really make it seem so easy together with your presentation but I
    find this topic to be actually something which I believe I might
    never understand. It kind of feels too complex and extremely
    wide for me. I am looking ahead on your next publish, I will try
    to get the dangle of it!

    since when you focus on white letters, you are focussing on light
