From Frank Morton of Wild Garden Seeds, our source for these special seeds: "Another year’s collection of unfinished projects. This is a yearly favorite for many, and probably the most sweated over seeds of the year. The year’s mix includes crispleaf, crisphead, and crisp romaines in many shades of red, green, and splattering patterns. Out of the 'wavy jets"'F4 selections, family R rocked Karen’s salad world, and family Q had such twisty curled margins it looked like political commentary. Then there are the crisped fuzz butts, that look better than they sound. Forms galore."
Let us know how these "fuzz butts" do for you!
