Show Notes

We’re kicking off the year with a seedy conversation! We’re sitting down to chat with Jere Gettle, owner of Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, America’s largest heirloom seed supplier!

We talk about Jere’s gardens and his favorite things to grow, what it’s like living at the Baker Creek village and some his favorite offerings from the 2024 Whole Seeds Catalog!

We also dig into how Baker Creek can offer hundreds of heirloom varieties from around the world – while honoring the people, places and cultures that these seeds call home. You don’t want to miss this conversation!

Before the interview, Bevin shares his thoughts on a recent article in the winter edition of Edible Wow Magazine. On page 39, author Courtney Burk has written an amazing article on the many ways that we can enjoy eating squash... and not just the flesh of the fruit! Burk interviews a handful of farmers and chefs that share insights on eating squash flesh, skin and leaves. But what this article fails to mention is how easy it is to press a decadently delicious oil from the squash seeds!
