Seeds Are Ordered

January 18:

Richard and Melanie took care of Seed Orders today. Richard sent in orders electronically to Shumway's, Seeds of Change, and Gurneys. Melanie called in orders to Seed Savers Exchange and Baker Creek. She likes to talk to a real person.

The Bulk of the Seed Orders were for Seed Savers and Baker Creek. Both specialize in Heirloom Seeds. Between the 3 of us, we like each of the 5 catalogues for different reasons.

This year, we ordered a little later than the past 2 years. I think we are in denial that another growing season is right around the corner, especially because of the lateness of the last Harvest.

We ordered less over all because we are able to save our own Seeds. That's what the Old Timers did. We have a lot to learn in that area, but it feels good.
