We used to do a big garden but DH always bought generic seeds from the big box stores. Deer nearly ate everything one year and that is when we gave up. But I'm ready to fight off the deer and other varmits this year.
So - I want good heirloom varieties of just about everything - tomatoes and all sorts of hot peppers are two of my weakenesses. I would kill for some good old fashioned 'field' corn. Herbs, edible flowers, you name it. Advice on varieties and where to find them wanted.
Also - any ideas on protecting from the varmits - mainly the deer and rabbits.
