Operator of the Populuxe Seed Bank.

While I've always had a place with a garden since a kid, I really grew crazy for gardening when I moved out to my own place and my landlord gave me a plot in his yard. That first year I grew a few herbs and zucchini, as well as a few tomatoes. When I learned the tomatoes I had picked up wouldn't give me seed for next year, that's when I fell down the rabbit hold of heirloom and OP varieties and seed saving.

In 2007 I started the Populuxe Seed Bank, after I had amassed a large collection of tomatoes and thought to myself "well, now what?". What could I do with some of these varieties I had acquired? What's the good of me just growing them? So I decided to make a concerted effort with the varieties I had in stock to grow out, and share as many of these varieties as I could.

In late 2020 we moved to a new location, and 2021 began a new adventure in gardening in a new space.

Location: Edmonton, AB, Canada.

Zone: 4a (approx. 130-140 frost free days)

Land type: Urban

Soil: Clay/loam. Amended with sheep/cow manure.

Elevation above sea level: 2200ft

2021 Grow Out

2021 was a bit smaller scale, due to the smaller space. I'll also be building several boxes over the next few years (the speed of which will be determined mainly by lumber prices!). For 2021 I decided to go with some tried-and-tested varieties for small scale and container gardening.
