The Victory Seed Company is a small, family owned and operated organization that works to preserve plant varieties by locating, growing, documenting and offering rare, open-pollinated, non-GMO, non-hybrid, heirloom seeds to home gardeners. Unlike most seed companies, we actually grow seeds on our farm and help to support other small seed farmers by purchasing what we don't grow from our network of growers. We work hard at being the best heirloom seed company and strive to be your main seed source. (You can read what other folks say about us at the Garden Watchdog.)

Natural Insect Control Clicking on ants will take you to another page. {*style:<b>Aphids: </b>*}For aphid control we carry: 1600 X-Clude , Diatomaceous Earth , Garden Dust Insecticide/Fungicide , Ants "farm" aphids often keeping them in their nest during winter, then bringing them out in spring and placing them on the host plant. The ants eat the honeydew the aphids produce and move them from plant to plant spreading any diseases that are present. The honeydew favors formation of a black fungus known as "sooty mold."

Recipes There are so many similarities between quinoa (keen' wah) and amaranth that it seems appropriate to describe them together. Quinoa, however, is a cool weather crop and amaranth is a warm weather one. Quinoa and amaranth are two very old, high-protein plants that hail from South America. They were held sacred in ancient Inca and Aztec cultures. Growing Amaranth and Quinoa Growing Amaranth and Quinoa
Salad greens, chives and braising greens thrive in this winter growing space, a greenhouse converted from an old swimming pool. Outside temperatures dipped down as low as 3F (-17C); yet this space remains productive without any additional heat. It is heated by the sun during the day, and stays relatively warm (around 32F (0C)) on coldest of nights. Plants are happy and harvest is in full swing. This unheated growing space was created in an old swimming pool that has fallen into disrepair. Greenhouse in a Swimming Pool - Winter Harvest
