HELLO! Welcome to the thirteenth annual seed catalog from The Maine Potato Lady, your source for quality seed potatoes. We have so enjoyed sharing with you the many varieties of potatoes, heirlooms, and new releases that we have grown and eaten over the years. For forty years, a very important part of my life has been growing most of the food for our family. Not only do we reap the incredible deliciousness of fresh, nutritious food grown from our healthy soil, but we gain measurable control over one very important part of our existence. There has been a resurgence of interest in one of our most important staple foods, grains or more specifically, heritage grains, the ancient seeds that have been grown and passed down through the centuries.

Many modern grains are substantially different from their ancient ancestors, and some people who cannot eat modern wheat find the ancient grains more digestible. My interest has been so piqued by these heritage grains that we are offering them for the first time, with a selection grown here in Central Maine by a thriving young grain farmer. Wow, just thinking of the coming growing season, preparing the place in my garden to plant these seeds that hold the memories and diversity of many lifetimes, gives me hope for the future. Oh, I can already smell the fragrance of fresh bread or cornbread right from the oven! Not much can make me feel better than to sit down to supper with my family to enjoy a meal of food that we have grown ourselves.

NEW THIS SEASON! For 2019, we are delighted to offer a new product line: Heritage Grains. Choose from among two wheat varieties and three flint corns. All are certified organic and locally grown! Also new this year: Two allium transplants, two sweet potatoes, fall-planted French grey shallots and a garlic, a yellow peony, and a few gardening accessories. And of course, as always, we have several new potato varieties for you to try! And this year for the first time, we've designated all the heirloom or heritage varieties throughout the catalog.
