2009 seed and plant selection

This is a page that will be updated as I go along. I am currently in the process of examining my existing seed and ordering new seed. I’ll organize the selections by where they are coming from rather than just alphabetically by variety. BTW … I am doing this so I can block and copy the selections from the web ordering process, put them in a text editor (NOT MS WORD!), clean them up and then paste them into this post. We’ll see how well it works. AhHa … works well as you can see below.
