Renee is concentrating this year on full-flavored, multi-colored greens - aren't we lucky? Brand new for 2012 and unique to Renee's Garden, here are a few of the seeds targeted for giveaways here on Plant Talk:
Beet and Chard Braising Mix - a blend of some of the most succulent greens in the garden, with Ruby Queen and Bulls Blood beets with Silverado and Eldorado chard. Snip for salads as the greens grow in..Tasty and tender eaten raw or braised...
Edible Landscape Lettuce 'Stardom Mix' is as gorgeous in the garden as it is delicious in the salad bowl, for it includes crispy-sweet, ruffled oakleaf varieties that are deeply red and blazingly green. Fast growing and heat tolerant, 'Stardom Mix' may well be the new gold standard for edible gardening.
Portugese Kale 'Tronchuda Beira' is tender, sweet and more heat resistant than any other kale. It's blue green leaves are lovely in the garden, and the flabor is mild but rich. Easy to grow.
