Winter potting

Asked January 19, 2021, 6:32 PM EST

Hi! I am very new to gardening and we just purchased a farm with quite a large garden and orchard area. I’ve been following joe lamp’l a bit and learning some about winter seeding. I’m wondering about a few things: 1) what would be the best seed brands for this area, 2) Where should I get good seed start potting soil, 3) what are some of the best vegetables, etc to consider raising in this area? Thank you I know that’s a fairly wide variety of areas.

Hi, There are several seed companies that sell short season crops including but not limited to Territorial, Nichols, Johnnys, Botanical Interests. you can find these at local garden centers or online. Local garden centers or farm supply stores will also have a seeding mix. I would recommend you check out our local publications including this one: https://catalog.extension.oregonstate.edu/em9128
