Hudson Valley Seed Library is a small home grown seed company that features New York heirloom and home garden varieties that do well in the Northeast. Some of the seeds are available nowhere else including Hank's X-tra Special Baking Bean from Ghent, NY. Their online catalogue contains more than 100 varieties. I met their founder Ken Greene at his booth at the Capital District Flower show last Friday after I gave a speech there. Not only do they have a wonderful selection of seeds, they have the most beautiful seed packet art I have ever seen. I bought packets of Spotted Trout Lettuce, Costata Romanesca Zucchini and New Yorker Tomato.
