Heirloom Expo in Photos


I highly recommend making the trip next year to Santa Rosa to see the National Heirloom Exposition put on by the folks at Baker Creek Seeds.  The centerpiece of the expo is the massive display of hundreds of different varieties of squash, melons, tomatoes and other edibles. It’s inspiring and frustrating all at once since, unless you have your own garden, you’ll never see such diversity at the supermarket. I came back with the will to improve our dismal vegetable gardening efforts and with a bunch of interviews you’ll hear on our podcast this week. For those of you who didn’t make it this year, here’s some of what you missed:

    • Melinda, 2014 Heirloom Expo, yes we were there, 2015 Heirloom Expo, no we could not go this year, hoping for next year, great event, the presentations are one of the best parts,so cool!

  1. No. You will choose between “red” “yellow” and “baker” potatoes. You get to choose from “yellow” “red” and “white” onions…if you’re lucky, you might even get to pick “sweet”.

    (insert tiny tantrum here ——>)

    It just cannot be this hard to get named, tasty produce into a grocery store.

  2. My god. I want to touch the little furry things in the 8th picture down! A little bit of google-fu leads me to believe that the light green ones are a type of cucumber, but I have no idea what the little basketball guys, or the ones that look like green rambutan are.

    So very cool!
