    I urge you all to do business with seed companies that support OSSI. If you don't want to wait for a catalog, you can order on line, Check out Fedco Seeds. They have boycotted Monsanto for years, have the source of all their seeds listed at the bottom of each variety description. Many of their varieties are OP. And they support small local seed suppliers, as well as encouraging independent breeding efforts.

    Place your Baker Creek orders as early as you can. They sell out of the popular/rare items fast! One year everything I wanted was sold out! Now I order in December or January.

    You can look at seeds and order online. I haven't gotten mine yet either, and it seems like it's been forever since I requested it. I have to request one every year, it's annoying. Why can't they remember me? Lol

    Apparently if you spend enough money you get the BIG catalog, not the free one? I got the big one this year. :eek: I guess I spent enough last year? :th

    No matter where you order, do so early, before they sell out of the varieties you want.

    Well -- I have a lot of seeds!! Some ordered from many of the mentioned suppliers -- some bought at 5 cent a pkg from clearance. Also have plenty of starter pots..clearance again..as well as some 6 oz cardboard type coffee cups left from samplings. We just toss them out but, I saved these to pot. You can cut them off easily o plant. FREEE! Sure have enough composted manure/stall cleanouts, etc. Just waiting on -- WEATHER!! Working to increase a little cold frame set up on south side of my house. I can get a lot in there...want more. :D

    I may not have as good germination with older seed but, plenty to spare and save $$. They have been stored well, so it will all be good. :old HUGE selection here....almost a catalog full :lol: It's scary, actually!
