Hybrid seeds – cross between two species that will not stay true in the next generation.

Heritage, heirloom and antique seeds- old vegetables of which tthe seeds can be saved and the product remains true to the original. Open pollinated and Non GMO. Heritage is mainly used in Europe and Canada.
BAKER CREEK Historic Farm and Village
They have developed a village to showcase the way things were done on farms in the past. They started festivals in 2000 and host them the first Sunday of every month (March-October) with a weekend long festival on the first Sunday in May. You can observe things like soap making, candle making, beekeeping, gardening, raising animals, food supply, cooking as well as live music. It is an educational experience.

Tour the grounds of Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company in the Ozark area of Missouri (Mansfield).
Owner Jere Gettle introduces us to his company and its history.
Resources for his seeds:
100 varieties come from his farm. Others come from a network ao over 100 small farmers who save their own seeds and 12 to 20 seed saving organizations and commercial seed growers.n They do no sell any seeds with US patents on them (hybrids).
Jere has been gardening since he was a child. He traveled in his to Mexico, Thailand, Guatamala, Belize and Cambodia in his 20’s. He met people who shared their vegetables that were handed down through generations. The seeds of these varieties were saved because they produced vegetables that were resistant to insects and disease in their areas. They were not necessarily uniform for shipping.

Best Time To Plant: End of May- mid July

Best Time To Plant: End of May- mid July
Grasses are divided into two main groups: Warm season or cool season. Warm season grasses are those that thrive in hot weather, turn brown in the winter, spread by stolons or rhizomes, and must be overseeded in the winter for a green lawn. The main examples of this type are Bermuda, both common and hybrid, Zoysia and St. Augustine. Cool Season grasses, on the other hand, stay green year-round, are bladed grasses (in contrast to leaves on runners like warm season grasses) and do not spread. Bare spots in cool season grasses need to be re-seeded.
