You may have noticed the "Hometown Seeds" link on the side bar. The story goes that they emailed me and asked me to put put up the link. I went to their site and looked around. They have a good variety of seeds at a good price, and besides that, I like their attitude, so I put up the link.
A couple of days ago, Saturday to be exact, I received a package of "Survival Seeds" from them, with a very nice hand written note thanking me for linking to their site.
The seeds were totally enclosed in a mylar looking package, so of course, I had to open it. We're not even close to planting time for even the early crops here... but I opened it anyway. Oh, my.
It felt like Christmas.
An exciting (gardeners, you know what I mean!) pile of seed packages slid out onto the table. Beans and radishes, corn and tomatoes, squash and lettuce and more. And more. There are enough to plant well over half an acre!
If I had paid for the package (which I did not, by way of disclaimer), I would have been very pleased. (Since I didn't pay for it, I was even more pleased, but that's the frugal in me!)
These survival packets, according to the label, will keep 5 years in a cool place. No hybrids so you can save seeds from the plants and expect perfect results the year after, and no GMO's so you can be sure you're eating healthy, real food.
So I'm happy today. :)
