Welcome to our 2013 catalog of organic seeds!
Inside a seed our future is held. For millennia, seeds have been carried from one part of the world to another as the most precious of cargo. Seeds are no less important to our future today. Our planet is changing; our diets are changing; and our farming is changing. We need seeds that are adapted to and can thrive amidst these changes and to the changes that we are all making to live in greater balance. Here at High Mowing, we have always considered ourselves to be part of a new kind of seed farm and seed company; one that is connected to seed issues from the ground up with a goal to inspire and support innovative new efforts in the field of organic seeds. In this year’s catalog, we highlight our joint efforts with the Student Organic Seed Symposium, Open Source Seed Initiative, Non-GMO Project, Seed Matters, and our ongoing organic plant breeding partnerships. All these projects give us great hope and excitement about the future of seeds. Centuries ago, almost everyone was a steward of the seeds in their community. It’s time a few more of us were today. Sincerely,

Artichokes Cynara scolymus

1501 Tavor Imperial Star 90 days

Why buy

An Imperial Star type for organic production. This is an improved variety yielding 7-8 uniform buds per plant, each averaging 4.5” in diameter. Buds are green with purple tips and are sweet and tender when eaten. Plants are nearly spineless, average 3-4’ tall and have a short vernalization period. It can be grown as an annual from seed in one season.

Organic Seeds?

• Because conventionally grown seed crops are heavy users of synthetic agricultural chemicals (they are in the ground longer and have less chemical restrictions than food crops). • Because seed bred and produced organically will yield plants that are more adapted to, and more likely to thrive under, organic growing conditions. • Because increased demand will lead to an increase in variety selection and development, and increased availability of more organic seed!

KALE PLANTING INFO: Days to maturity are from direct seeding, subtract two weeks if transplanting. Seeding depth: 1/4-1/2”, Baby leafDirect seeding: ~60 seeds/ft in 2-4” bands, Row spacing: ¾” between bands. Full Size- Direct seeding: ~3-4 seeds every 8-10”, Plant spacing: thin to 8-10”, Row spacing: 18-30”. CULTURAL INFO: Kale is a hardy biennial that will over-winter in milder climates, and improve in flavor with the onset of cold weather. Direct sow as soon as soil can be worked or start transplants four weeks before planting date. Plant for baby leaf every 4-5 weeks for a continual harvest. Sow fall plantings two months before first expected frost for full size and up until frost for baby leaf. Harvest full size leaves when desired. Kale flavor sweetens after light frosts. Kale and collards are both very cold hardy, over-wintering in most climates to some degree. DISEASE & PESTS: Kale is subject to the same insect pests as cabbage, cauliflower, and broccoli, but tends to be less preferred. Insect pests, including cabbage looper, imported cabbage worm, and diamondback moth are largely of the Lepidoptera order and can thus be controlled by Bacillus thuringiensis (such as Dipel DF) and/or spinosad, preferentially in rotation with one another to prevent build-up of resistant individuals. Flea beetles chew small holes in the leaves and are most detrimental when plants are young; use row cover (make sure edges are sealed) or application of Pyganic™, neem or capsaicin products to control populations. SEED SPECS: 5,625-9,375 seeds/oz (7,500 avg), 90-150M seeds/lb (120M avg).

Harvest when stem swells to 3-5” and is easily visible above the soil. Plants will withstand light frost. DISEASE & PESTS: Black Rot, caused by the bacterium Xanthomonas campestris and Club root, caused by the soil borne fungus Plasmodiophora. Prevention includes resistant varieties, crop rotation, removal or tillage of plant debris, eliminating cruciferous weeds, and handling plants in dry conditions. Insect pests, including cabbage looper, imported cabbage worm, and diamondback moth, are largely of the Lepidoptera order and can thus be controlled by Bacillus thuringiensis (Dipel DF and/or spinosad) ideally in rotation to prevent selection of resistant individuals (check with your certifier before applying). Protect plants from flea beetles: use floating row covers in the early season. Control root maggots by applying beneficial nematodes. RESISTANCE KEY: FY-Fusarium Yellows and Wilt.

LEEKS PLANTING INFO: Days to maturity are from transplant; add 20-30 days if direct seeding. Seeding depth: ¼”, Seeding Rate: 6 seeds/ft, Plant spacing: thin to 6”, Row spacing: 30”. CULTURAL INFO: Leeks are a cool season biennial grown similarly to bunching onions. Leeks prefer rich soils and plenty of moisture. Summer leeks mature early and are light green, long and slender and do not require hilling for longer shafts. Winter leeks mature late in the season, are dark green and require hilling for longer shafts. Direct seed as soon as soil can be worked in the spring or start transplants 10-12 weeks before planting date. Optimal soil temperature for germination is 75-85° F but seeds can germinate as low as 50 degrees F. Sow seeds in individual cells or broadcast into flats at 8 seeds/inch. Seeds germinate within 14-20 days. When seedlings reach 5”, trim down to 1” above growing point in order to thicken girth. Transplant out as soon as soil can be worked. Plant in shallow trenches 6” deep leaving only a few inches remaining above the soil. For longer, blanched stalks, hill plants as they grow. Like onions, leeks compete poorly with weeds and are sensitive to drought. Harvest at any stage of maturity, but flavor is usually best in fall after a few cold nights. Bank soil around stalks and mulch with hay to over-winter for an early spring harvest. Store washed leeks several weeks at near freezing with high humidity. Store in boxes or in root cellar in peat/sand mix. DISEASE & PESTS: Botrytis leaf blight (Botrytis squamosa) develops as small lesions surrounded by a silvery-white “halo” that grow and eventually extend through the wall of the leaf. Infection by the more common Botrytis cinerea (gray mold fungus) is distinguished by smaller lesions that do not have a “halo” and do not penetrate the leaf. Die-back begins at the leaf tip and can result in premature death of the leaf prior to maturity. The fungus persists as sclerotia in the soil and on crop residues. Protectant fungicides are applied in advance when cool, wet conditions are expected. Downy Mildew (Peronospora destructor) thrives in extended periods of cool, humid weather. Plant in a well drained area, avoid overhead irrigation, orient rows with prevailing winds and rotate crops. Purple blotch (Alternaria porri and Alternaria alternata) appears as elongated purple lesions that turn silvery over time. Control measures are similar to those for botrytis blight and downy mildew. Damping off (Pythium/Rhizoctonia) – Avoid excessive moisture. White Rot (Sclerotium Cepivorum) – Destroy infected plants and rotate crops. SEED SPECS: 9.5-11M seeds/oz (10,250 avg.) M=1,000

Excellent summer leek. One of the earliest maturing, most uniform varieties in our 2012 summer leek trials – a real stand-out! Dark blue-green foliage is attractive, and contrasts nicely with long white shank. Outer leaves are easy to peel off the stalk, making Megaton effortless to clean. Plants grow straight upright and stockier, keeping leaves off the ground and helping to prevent disease. Compared to King Richard, Megaton is faster growing, more upright and darker green. Megaton holds well in the field, making this a great variety to harvest over time at a range of sizes.

2698 Megaton F1

2697 bandit

A cold-hardy winter leek for late harvests or over wintering. Forms a very thick base with little bulbing, making cleaning easier and offering more weight per plant.

LETTUCE PLANTING INFO: Days to maturity are from direct seeding; in spring conditions, subtract 10-14 days if transplanting, subtract 7-10 days if planting in summer conditions, add 20 days if planting late summer-fall. Seeding depth: 1/8”, seeds require minimum amount of light for germination. Baby leaf - Direct seeding: ~60 seeds/ft, in 2” bands, Row spacing: ¾” between bands, or 16 rows/36” bed. Full size - Direct seeding: 3 seeds every 8-10”, Plant spacing: 8-12”, Row spacing: 12-18” or 3 rows/36” bed, 5’ centers. CULTURAL INFO: A cool season annual, it prefers well drained soil and high levels of fertility. Can be grown all season long by choosing appropriate varieties. Many varieties may also have a thermal dormancy and can be difficult to germinate in soils above 70-75°F. For best results, germinate lettuce at temperatures at or below 68°F. Lettuce will germinate in temperatures as low as 40°F. Start transplants 3-4 weeks before planting date. Harden-off seedlings by reducing water and temperature. For baby leaf, harvest individual leaves when they reach desired size or cut evenly across the bed staying above the growing tip. For a continuous harvest, sow lettuce every 3 weeks. DISEASE & PESTS: Downy Mildew (Bremia lactucae) is the most serious lettuce disease growers face. Lettuce Drop (Sclerotinia sclerotiorum) prefers cool, moist conditions. It first appears as creeping, enlarging grey-brown lesions on leaves. Bottom Rot (Rhizoctonia solani) is first apparent as rustcolored lesions on the stem. Fungal diseases are best prevented by using resistant varieties, proper spacing and orientation to increase airflow, limiting overhead irrigation, increasing soil drainage, rotating crops and limiting alternative hosts. RESISTANCE KEY: aPh-aphids (Nasanovia

Recommended to us by a local grower for a heavyweight full-sized red leaf that really packs a box. Dark green leaves with brick red margins are long. Plants tend to sit flat but when spaced closely at 1012" will be more upright. When other varieties in our trials were getting hammered with Bottom Rot, Red Tide showed hardly any signs. Available as raw and pelleted seed.

Popular choice among growers for its uniformity, color and excellent resistance to bolting and disease. Large, loose heads are green at the base and dark red at the ruffled leaf edges. It is suitable both for cool and warm conditions and retains its crisp fresh flavor throughout the season. Similar to Red Sails but better for full size heads that are fuller and larger in size. Has shown moderate resistance to lettuce drop and heat stress in our trials. Available as raw and pelleted seed.
