A Way to Garden with Margaret Roach – January 9, 2023 – Lane Selman on Seed Shopping

Have you started browsing the incoming seed catalogs yet or clicking around their websites, looking to see if the 2023 lineups have been unveiled?

Today’s guest, Lane Selman is always on the lookout for exceptional varieties of edibles, particularly those with an Italian flair. I did some virtual seed shopping with her and learned about some distinctive edibles and unusual seed sources you may not have tried.  

Lane Selman, an agricultural researcher at Oregon State University, is founder of the Culinary Breeding Network , a collaborative community of plant breeders, seed growers, farmers, produce buyers, and chefs aiming together to improve quality in vegetables and grains by creating, identifying, and promoting more desirable cultivars, especially organic ones. She’s got some suggestions for our 2023 gardens.

  1. Wonderful podcast! Where can I find the show notes and details?

  2. I thought the seed catalogs mentioned would be posted. Where are they? I live in Oregon and I would like to support these growers.
