Catalog extras: Tips to make the most of your crops

Have you received your Johnny's Selected Seeds 2010 Catalog?

Maybe you're poring over the pages right now.

You're looking at photos of fresh herbs, ripe veggies, fresh flowers, and mouth-watering fruit. You're thinking spring.

You're trying to decide which new vegetable, herb, or flower seeds to plant, or which tool to add to your gardening shed.

Perhaps you want a little more information - some tips on how to improve your crops or extend your growing season. You may have noticed that in addition to 180 new products, we've added some new features to the catalog this year. At the beginning of each product section, we've included an article to help you make the most of your crops.

The articles are written by Lynn Byczynski, editor and publisher of Growing for Market magazine. Lynn, who has grown organic vegetables and cut flowers for market near Lawrence, Kansas since 1988, is the author of several books about market farming, including The Flower Farmer: An Organic Grower's Guide to Raising and Selling Cut Flowers; The Hoophouse Handbook; Market Farming Success.

Check out our "Catalog Extras" section on the website to read Lynn's latest article. We'll be posting more articles and photos in the coming weeks.
