Husband and I ordered all our seeds for this year’s garden, but still peruse the seed catalogs to see if we missed anything. We received a new catalog this year from a place in Missouri (Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds), and we noticed they had the most delightful descriptions of their seed varieties. You can tell they love the seeds they sell, and we thought the blurbs for some of the seeds sounded like descriptions of people. Here are some examples:
Cold hardy old variety from Denmark (Strawberry)
Earthy and spicy (Carrot)
Exceptionally sweet, tender, and above all-tough (Cucumber)
A Dakota variety, so you know its rugged (Pole Bean)
Arrives fashionably late (Parrot Tulips)
A classic pear shape (Paste Tomato)
A reliable keeper (Cabbage)
Large and elegantly showy (Cosmos)
Husband just wants to be a reliable keeper. I like to think of myself as a rugged, Dakota variety. I want to avoid pear shaped.
Write a seed catalog blurb of yourself or someone else.
