    Boy that was a lot of typing. I know it's early, but now is the time to look and see who is cheapest.

    I have put 2 orders into HPS and 1 into R.H.Shumway Seeds. These 2 outfits I like and have ordered, year after year.

    Harris Seeds will get a little of my money next.

    Territerial Seed Company has morel and califlower mushroom span and 4 pages of garlic. This a neat catalog.

    If you folks got some I haven't listed, Please Post Them.

    There is nothing better to help with cabin fever, than to look at seed catalogs.


    :wink::wink::wink::wink:

    Lets all make 2009 a good gardening year.

    I get all but two you posted, John Scheepers & Pine Tree. I too get Burbee & Park seeds. Also, I get a few nursery catalogs, two especially come to mind because their prices are so low. They are both out of McMinnville TN if I recall. They are Vernon Bro's & Lee's. Not sure of their websites or if they have them. I started using them back in the late 70's when you could buy fruit trees for under $4 & Lobardy Poplar trees for 19 cents apiece.
    McMinnville seems to be a hub for wholesalers to get their stock from.

    I remember my father ordering Burbee seed back in the 50's. He liked them, but hated any hybrids. I guess that's where I get it. I would love to have a list of all the Heirloom Varieties you all use. Especially curious of corn, cucumbers, beans & peppers.

    I have found that I usually get all my seed from Henry Fields, mostly out of habit I suppose.

    Kutter Henry Fields is in Indiana so I won't order from them. Got to save that 7% sales tax. lol

    No Joke Kutter, I have real close to 300 dollars spent so far on seeds. LOL I love a big garden.

    Jim, I have gotten and bought from most of those over the years. Have always started many things. I have got away from that the last few years.

    Do you "start" many things, if any? If so what is your set-up.

    Built a garden shed for Nancy last summer and have considered going to a cold frame with early bought stuff. No electric in the shed yet for starting anything so I doubt I will get involved again. From an acre we have cut down to just a few things we enjoy. The canning and selling and giving away has gone by the wayside.

    John.

    Kutter try www.seedsavers.org or www.seedsofchange.com , I grow cherokee beans, hidatsa shield bean and the seneca red stalker corn. I order them from the first company listed and personally don't like growing hybrids .The first company is also non-profit .

    I buy all my plants. Marks, a roadside greenhouse by me has all kinds for about 8 bucks a flat. I usually get about 3 flats.

    Seed potatos we drive to Bremem to get.[ about 70 miles away] No farm stores around here anymore. This spring I'll get 25 pounds or so of seed potatos. My sandy ground with all the stuff I get from the neighbors grows potatos real well.

    This year I will plant more Yukon Gold, as they had double the taters in a hill of all I had planted. Last year I had Pontiac reds, Northlands, Kenibecks and Yukon Golds.

    The new potatos went over real well at that food bank. New potato's are good eating.
