You know Burpee Seeds. We’ve known about Burpee since we were
in our cribs! It all started with W. Atlee Burpee who developed the
seed company in the late 1800s. Today the original Burpee Farm, known
as Fordhook Farm, was open to the public as part of the
Garden Conservancy Tour. I’ll mostly refer to it as Burpee Farms.
(because I want to–)
My friend and I started the tour at the Delaware Valley College Farm Market
which is right next door to Fordhook Farm. They have a tempting array of
Burpee Seeds for sale . . .
Then we entered the grounds of the tour and walked through acres of beds and gardens of nurtured plants
and flowers. Most of them were carefully labeled, and
it was fun to see new and different varieties.
We also saw some old favorites. Follow along with this
photo tour, clicking to enlarge when you like.
I didn’t mention it was raining during the day—but just a mild sprinkle and it
didn’t bother us at all! Great day exploring a true icon of the gardening world.
