Our seed orders for Gardening 2009 are almost complete. Richard and Melanie have ordered from Gurney's, Shumway's, Seeds of Change, and Seed Savers Exchange. Melanie will call in the order for Baker Creek tomorrow.
The latter 4 catalogs are shaping up to be our favorites. They feature heirlooms, organics, non-hybrids (open pollinated), and non-GMOs (genetically modified organisms). Gurney's and Shumway's were favorite catalogs of earlier generations in our families.
The Gurney's seed order just arrived in the mail today. We will begin planting seeds inside in flats soon. I will be planting Leeks and Pansies in the next 2 weeks. We are moving from mid-winter into the anticipation of another growing season. How sweet is that!
