Peace Seedlings 2020 Seedlist
We reflect on the process of growing food and seeds while breeding and selecting for a diverse and nourishing future in a time of complex social and environmental dynamics. In the winter of 1996/1997 our garden experienced a “100 year flood”. We know we are in a flood plain and that is part of why it is fertile. April 10, 2019 we woke up to another flood this one higher than in 96. Apparently they are 22 year floods now?! Canoeing a 5 lane highway to our garden might have been one of the most adrenaline filled scary moments of our lives. We were confident canoeing but we had no idea what to expect to see at our garden. We had prepared for the projected “minor flood” but woke up at 2am to a serious flood and it was still on the rise. 3 miles of Highway 34 was part of the Willamette river, and our garden in the middle. Our minds heavy thinking of our beloved 2 cats, 6 chickens, and a few thousand starts. All of the ground we garden was under water, our greenhouses had around 4-5 ft of water flowing through them. We were lucky. Cats had swam to trees. Our wood-framed tables floated, so starts were receiving an aquapocics experiment you would never want to recreate. The plants in the ground were not as lucky, as some parts of the garden took 2 weeks to drain. A serious setback in Mid April to some of the breeding work in peas we hoped to offer this year. Big Thanks to everyone who helped the cleanup aftermath!
We hope 2020 brings a clear vision of the path forward. Growing and preserving diversity is what sustains us through difficult times. It has been 25 years since the concept of “Kinship Gardening” was published for the Public Domain by Peace Seeds! It is a critical method of preserving biodiversity while allowing the most possiblity for adaptation and evolution. We need more collabortion and LAND to effectivly do this. It has been 30 years since Peace Seeds did some of the first analysis of Free Amino Acids in Vegetables and herbs. This groundbreaking work is still not part of the common breeding or nutrition programs. We need more collaboration to do nutritional analysis for the public domain. This is the only way to select for more than what we can see and taste. Carotanoids and anthocyanins are the beginning, but nutrition is much deeper.
We grow everything organikally, the K is for know your farmer and know your source. All varieties are bred and selected by us, open-pollinated and public domain, some very new, and others very old, trusted selected heirlooms. Squash and zucchini are hand pollinated to insure true cultivars. In our continuing work of preserving heirlooms at the same time as breeding new varieties, occasional crossing happens (less then 1%). So, occasional rogue plants can happen in a seed batch. We strive to preserve the lines we offer but evolution is always in process. Thanks for gardening and being part of the process.
Throughout the seedlist you will see “breeding by Peace Seedlings” which means Dylana Kapuler and Mario DiBenedetto are the original creators. Varieties noted as “breeding by Peace Seeds” were developed by Alan and Linda Kapuler. All the seeds we offer in this catalog are grown, selected, cleaned and packed by us; Dylana Kapuler and Mario DiBenedetto; Peace Seedlings.
Big Thanks to everyone who helped after the flood: Christian Petrovich, Mushroom and Linda Kapuler, Phil Gouy, Chris Homanics, Cassandra and Jahmez.
To Hal Brown for continuing your parents generosity and collaboration.
