8/17/21 - Have you been having weird weather this summer too? We have had one of, if not the hottest gardening season on record. In spite of the heat and smoke, crops are coming along and we have started harvest related tasks. With staff stretched thin, and although we will likely get your order out sooner, please allow 4 to 6 business days. Thank you for your patience, your continued support, and we hope you have bountiful harvests.
No Catalog for 2021: Although we usually offer a printed descriptive catalog every winter, these are very unusual times. When COVID-19 hit the world early in the Spring of 2020, the sales volume that we experienced, although greatly appreciated, did put unexpected drains on our inventory. As if life during an international pandemic wasn't enough, the growing season this past summer was challenging to say the least. Decreased harvest yields and crop failures were experienced all over the country. With the uncertainties that lie ahead, printing a catalog just is not practical at this time. Thank you for your understanding and patience during these trying times.
We are an early signer of the Safe Seed Pledge
All of our seeds are open-pollinated, non-hybrid, not chemically treated, many are rare, family heirlooms or endangered, and we will never knowingly offer genetically engineered, aka GMO, varieties.
For over twenty-three years, people from all over the world have sent us their interesting and prized family seed varieties. Although our grow out schedules are tight, we do fit in quite a few "new" varieties each year. We eventually trial them and make as many as possible available to gardeners.
