Norene Wedam says:
The best seed for Toledo will be what has been grown out by area gardeners and selected for local growing conditions.
Please save your heirloom seed and plant starts for the 2018 TOLEDO SEED SWAP. Plan to set aside seed throughout the harvest season.
I suggest packaging most seed in amounts of at least 30 seeds per envelope to give gardeners enough seeds to grow out a seed variety and start saving their own seed. Please label each envelope with the name of the seed (ex., “Bloomsdale Spinach”) and the year it was harvested (ex.,“Harvested in 2017”).
