i decided to buy some bulk seeds and while at it purchased a can of seeds from Baker Creek Seeds out of missouri.
wow! did I get a large assortment!!!
I highly recommend them for the value and variety. from veggies to herbs to flowers.
I am going to purchase another can for future use as with all the catastrophe's going on i suspect food is gonna rise exponentially sooner rather than later.

here is the link for the seeds. I got the northern large can as i live in Mn.

Last year, several of us went in together and bought the jumbo bucket (southern). If you like the variety in the cans, you'll love the variety of the bucket. Enough seeds for several family/neighbors, setting some aside for later use. And the great thing about these heirlooms, you can save seeds from your harvests for future growing seasons.

I've been buying seeds from Baker Creek for over 6 years now and have only had one packet come up the wrong thing, and they refunded me cash! I've had the store seeds come up wrong and all I got was the run around when I wanted my money back.
With a little TLC and a bit of help you can save seeds from all your crops and keep them pure. Can I suggest a run to the library and borrow a book called Seed to Seed by Susan Ashworth- I have most of seed saving ways and how to store seed properly all memorized, with many of my notes all written out somewhere in a binder so if I get more brain dead as I age I can refer to the notes.. lol

thanks for the info!
one thing i am not really up on is seed saving. I have collected some herb seeds and beans and peas. i did try to save broccoli but my 74 year old mom who lives with us thought it was dried bugs ...and threw them out. good grief. lol
anyway one item that came in the can was amaranth. I am excited about trying that.

Are their shipping rates fair? I couldnt find a estimate on the site. As I have never used them before I'd like to start with a small southern collection. Thanks for your input.

I just checked my catalog and the shipping and handling is $3. Fair enuf for me :2thumb:.
here is a snip from the online ordering instructions.

snip start-
USA Postage and Handling

We now charge just $3.00 per order for US orders! (All items & large bulk orders are included in this flat rate) We ship seeds year-round.

Notice: We are no longer able to change orders once they have been placed, due to multiple people and departments that work to finish each order. Orders are printed shortly after we receive them, and go into the fulfillment stage. If we happen to be out of an item, we will send you a refund unless we are planning to receive the item in the very near future.
end snip.

Thanks Emerald...I must have had a senior moment :surrender:
LOL!
Don't worry about it! I often have them myself--I just happened to have the catalog next to me and the laptop on my lap! lol
