Our seeds have arrived

We went strictly with Baker Creek seeds this year—there was no particular reason other than we dig their plant philosophy and we want to spread our business around. I believe the only plant items left to purchase for our garden this year are a pair of dwarf fruit trees. We will probably start some of our seeds in about five weeks.

I can't wait to try the black cherry tomato.

I love Baker Creek too! I've gotten a few seeds from them for the past couple of years, and this year I'm buying all of my seeds from them (although to be honest, since I've started saving seed, I don't buy nearly as much as I used to.) Two years ago, I went to their Spring planting festival in Mansfield, MO. It was pretty cool to see so many other people interested in the various aspects of self-sufficiency and ecologically sensitive agriculture.

Hi Mike,
Thanks for the comment. I think Baker Creek would be damn proud to lose business to gardeners saving their own seeds. Something I've always wanted to do on this blog, but just haven't found the time to do, is make how-to videos on seed saving. I don't know about your experiences, but some seeds are hard to save. Maybe this year will be the year.

I just placed my Baker Creek order yesterday--their selection and presentation was irresistible. I am glad to see it extends to the handsome seed packets too (hey, its winter, this gal will take beauty anywhere).
