As you might already know, I have a unique selection of heirloom garden seeds available at Mary's Heirloom Seeds. I am in the process of adding a few more varieties and any suggestions would help.
And now on to the garden! According to Mother Earth News, the top 10 crops for the Maritime Canada and New England region are: Carrot, Cherry Tomato, Cucumber, Slicing Tomato, Summer Squash, Onion, Pole Beans, Snap peas, Lettuce and Garlic.

My advice to anyone getting started:
-Plant ONLY Heirloom Seeds. Find out why...
-Plant Basil!!! It's easy.
-More easy varieties are: lettuce, beets, radish, turnips and borage.
-Try Peat Pellets for seed-starting made easy.
-Plant more seeds than you think you'll need. Stuff happens!
-Take notes or keep a log of what works, what didn't work, questions and comments. Or blog about it!
