The Canning Garden

This years collection of seeds has been put together with five of my favourite varieties for pickling, making sauce, and sun dried tomatoes. 
Beets, Detroit Dark Red - An heirloom that is tried and tested. These dark purple beets are great in salads, roasted, or pickled. Lovely sweetness to them.

Cucumbers, Russian Pickling - Another heirloom, these heavy producers are perfect for dill pickles...if you can stop eating them long enough to make a batch!

Dill, Bouquet - Tasty, productive dill plant that self seeds on our area. We use the young greens for recipes calling for fresh dill. Large flower heads are great for pickling.

Tomato, Amish Paste - In my opinion, the best roma type sauce tomato around. An American heirloom boasting heavy production. These tomatoes are also very good in salad.

Tomato, Principe Borghese - Grown specifically for sun drying, we usually use our oven or dehydrator and then store them in mason jars. A great grape tomato for salads, these make for sweet snacks in the winter when dried. Heavy production on small(ish) plants.
