Seeds !!!


I just LOVE when the UPS guy knocks on my door (even if he is just delivering Sam's tea).
Sometimes I want to buy stuff just so I can get a package in the mail!

This day it was our seed order from Fedco,
our official first purchase for the Sharecropper project....
...yippee yahoo!

Here's what we got today - - -

1 1/2 lbs. Provider Beans
1 lb. Red Kidney Beans
1 lb. Midnight Black Turtle Dry Bean
1/2 lb. Black Valentine Bush Green Bean

A quarter oz. of the following - - -

Big Max Pumpkin
Long Pie Pumpkin
New England Pie Pumpkin (sensing a 'theme' here)
Candy Roaster Squash
Uncle Davids Dakota Dessert Squash (bought strictly for the name:)
Waltham Butternut Squash



ps. the cucumbers are in the Seed Savers order Joyce...
...not to worry!

Oh, I'm so hoping I'm not too late to order more seeds! I still have a bunch from last year, but there's so much I want to add!

Any particular reason you chose FedCo? I'm a dork and didn't even send away for any seed catalogues.

We just wanted to make sure we stayed away from companies associated with Monsanto, and Fedco was recommended. I also think their seeds were very reasonable (tho their website isn't as pretty or as easy to navigate).
I checked the prices against several other catalogs and theirs had the lowest (and I wasn't even choosing them on that criteria - I had already put in my order).

We also ordered from Seed-Savers, again because we like their commitment to avoid Monsanto seed.

ps. and I don't think it's too late to order, I'm usually planting till the end of May!

I recognize kidney beans and a few varieties of squash. You're going to have to show me picture of the others when they bloom or sprout or grow...whatever the right word is! :)
