  1. I want to order some heirloom tomato seeds for this year. Do you know a good company?

  2. I look for Heirlooms at my local nurserys!

    I also buy from Johnnys seeds
    Territorial Seed Co.
    Seed Savers

    You can also look for Hierlooms by

    Good places to start! Good luck John!

  3. You're not officially insane until you've filled up three VERY LARGE shoeboxes (that once held SIZE 13 BOOTS with seed that has been organized into various categories. OR -- until the seed collection in those three shoe boxes gets so large -- you have to separate seeds for all items into different shoeboxes. Not that I know anyone who does that....
