Mennonite Sorghum - Annapolis Seeds - Nova Scotia Canada
Mennonite Sorghum
Price: $2.00

I've been experimenting with different varieties of sorghum for a few years now, and for many seasons Mennonite was my favourite. After discovering Ba-Ye-Qi sorghum last year, it's no longer my go-to variety for grain production (Ba-Ye-Qi has it beat for earliness), but it's still a great dual-purpose variety for syrup and grain (if started early).

The plants look a lot like tall stalks of corn, only rather than producing a tassel on top they each bear a head of grain. In addition to the grain (which is gluten-free) the juice from the mature stalks is sweet and can be pressed and boiled into syrup. I enjoy just chewing on the stalks in the garden like sugar cane. 100+ seeds (1.5 grams)

Camelina - Annapolis Seeds
Camelina
Price: $2.00

An ancient oilseed from northern Europe, very well suited to growing in the Maritimes. Extremely easy to grow, in 2014 I direct seeded a small patch of camelina into our poorest soil and eventually lost track of it to overgrown weeds. We rescued the plants in mid-summer, and, to my surprise, the plants had grown just fine among the weeds and went on to produce a decent crop of small yellow seeds. Like flax, the oil is rich in Omega 3, but camelina seems much better suited to cultivating in the Maritimes. This is definitely a plant I want to experiment with more in future years! Several hundred seeds

Golden Flax - Annapolis Seeds
Golden Flax
Price: $2.00

Very easy to grow, and a beautiful addition to the garden. Golden Flax reaches about 24” tall by early summer, and blooms with the most delicate of sky-blue flowers. Each flower lasts but a single morning, it’s petals falling before the heat of mid-day. There are plenty of new flowers in waiting, enough for quite a few morning displays. Each flower develops into a seed ball, each one containing a dozen or so flax seeds. Harvest the whole stalk when the seed balls turn yellow, and hang under cover to dry fully. 200+ seeds

The seeds are a mix of black, brown and white, and are among the tastiest and best textured that I’ve ever eaten. Originally from a diverse mix of amaranth varieties crossed and grown together by Frank Morton. Plants display a lot of diversity. Several hundred seeds
