Olde Thymey Seed Collection

Having been through an awful lot of seed catalogues I can say with a certain authority that the people who create varieties love an olde thymey name. Either that or they name the varieties after themselves or a great, great aunt and it just works out that way. Especially the beans. It’s always the beans!

  • ‘Grammy Tilly’ Runner Bean
  • ‘Uncle Willie’s’ Bush Bean – Cross referenced with the Hustlers and Pimps Collection.
  • ‘Turkey Gizzard’ Pole Bean – Save the gizzard for Uncle Willy!
  • ‘Grandpa Admire’s’ Leaf Lettuce
  • ‘Wenk’s Yellow Hots’ Hot Pepper
  • ‘Ethel Watkin’s Best’ Tomato
  • ‘Olde Timey Looney’ Tomato
  • ‘Ten Commandments’ Gourd – Not so much “olde thyme” as biblical.

  1. Don’t forget Lazy Housewife Beans!

    Munchkin got those Ten Commandments Gourds at Seedy Saturday and was he ever excited. Of course he had to count the prongs on them to make sure there were 10 of them.

    Your handmade flower pin is now displayed prominently in his room. ;o)
