WWTJP? (What would Thomas Jefferson Plant?)

Today we were extremely fortunate to receive a seed donation from the Thomas Jefferson Center for Historic Plants. They gave us all kinds of interesting and heirloom seeds, such as Florence Fennel, China Rose Winter Radish and Anne Arundel Melon. Can’t wait to see these plants popping up in our garden.

The Thomas Jefferson Center for Historic Plants is located at Tufton Farms and is owned by Monticello. While picking up our seeds, we were able to take a tour of the center’s gardens and greenhouse. It was a beautiful day to spend some time in the country, and it looks like they’re doing great work over there.
