White Sage: Indigenous sage used ceremonially by native people, tied into bundles and burned as incense "smudge sticks". Likes a well-drained, dry, sunny spot. Perennial in zones 7 and above, grown as annual where winters are cold. Gray-white foliage and white or pale blue flowers.
Campesino Quinoa: Rows to 6 ½ ft with pink, red and green seedheads. Light-colored seed is larger than any other variety except Apellewa. Strong reliable grower. A workhorse variety with a good balance of seed size, flavor, yield, and biomass. Our exclusive.
Rosemary - One of the most useful of all herbs. Drought-tolerant, endures hot sun, but needs a very well-drained soil with lime. Seed germination is rather slow. Wonderful in almost any cooked dish, but especially on roasted meats and potatoes. A sprig or two in a bottle of olive oil or vinegar is an easy way to add savor to meals, and a fine gift. Aromatic leaves valued for potpourri, baths, herb wreaths. Medicinal: circulation, anti-aging, restorative, memory.
