heirloom

last night, dlb was looking up stuff about heirloom veggies on the web.  he came across this wonderful seed company with hundreds of varieties of veggies that I’d never even heard of before and this gorgeous photo of carrots.

it really saddened me to discover that nearly 98% of once grown vegetable varieties have disappeared over the past century.  heirloom seed promoters suggest that we can help by “adopting” a vegetable for a year, which sounds good to me!  besides, how lovely would it be to have a rainbow in your garden?
