Grow the Healthiest Vegetables this Year!

Screen shot 2012-02-25 at 8.21.49 AM.png

It almost time to plant seeds. Homegrown vegetables and fruits are more nutritious than those found in the grocery store.

Burpees new BOOST line of seeds and plants are designed to pack in flavor and nutrition.

To your health. Our experts have selected six of our most nutritious and delicious vegetables--for a harvest of health-giving flavor. Burpee's BOOST collection includes six vegetables, each "best-in-class" for taste and nutritional oomph.
  • Tomato 'Solar Power Hybrid'
  • Pepper 'Sweet Heat Hybrid'
  • Tomato 'Power Pops Hybrid'
  • Lettuce 'Healing Hands Salad Mix'
  • Tomato 'Cherry Punch Hybrid'
  • Cucumber 'Gold Standard Hybrid'
I haven't sprouted these seeds yet, so I don't know how well they grow. In general, I try to buy seeds that are organic and collected closer to home to be better climatized for my garden. Burpee seeds come from Pennsylvania.
 

Most of these seeds are hybrids, which means you won't be able to collect your own seeds from the plants for next year's garden.

I do like how the collection contains 20 seeds of each variety, as a normal seed packet contains too many seeds for one season of personal gardening, and germination rates decline as seeds age.
