Today I received my co-op order, and I was so disappointed to find that only 3 out of about 15 packs of heirloom seeds arrived. I suppose they were so popular that they sold out (which I can completely understand- they were an exceptional price and sounded just amazing!). For a very quick explanation of heirloom seeds, read this short article.
Normally I would just re-order next month, but I can't really wait a month or more to start many of my indoor seedlings, so tonight I have done a bit of looking around for some online heirloom seed stores. Here are a few I found that look good:
Heirloom Seeds- the prices seem to be really good at first glance, many organic seeds
Seed Savers Exchange- Price seem fairly comparable, lots of great photos of the different varieties
Heirloom Seedsmen- Some photos, sell some seeds in bulk quantities
Anyone know of any other great companies? I'd love to hear about them!
And just for fun, a few other sites that I ran across:
Old Fashioned Living- cooking, homemaking, gardening, homemaking, celebrations, frugality, etc.
Vegetables Varieties for Gardeners- Which varieties are best for your garden?
Can you tell I'm getting excited about gardening season?!?!? How about you? How are your garden preparations coming along?
