I hope I did not screw up. I normally go to the local hardware store but one has closed and the other stays too busy. I will still get my plants from them as i do not like to start my own. Don

Good Luck. Our living room garden is a couple weeks behind but we'll start getting ripe tomatoes soon. Here in Connecticut I won't worry about seeds for another month. Luckily Comstock Ferry is near our VA hospitol so, we go there after an appointment.

 

What are you growing? Take care, Rick

Just finished online ordering some Crimson Sweet watermelon, and Kentucky Wonder bush green beans.  The last 3 years or so, the Ky Wonder seeds can't be found locally.  So I was happy to find them online.

I need to get started on my order it will soon be time to plant some cool weather plants. We have a feed store close by that sells in bulk. This store is unique they still custom grind feed for farmers.

Somehow I find that ironic.

We've been meaning too order some online, Amber normally does this, but last year we got busy and just before you knew it snow was on the ground. I hope to change that this year.

I would not worry much about mail ordering seeds. Probably 80% of the seeds and plants I buy are mail ordered..

I know a large order from Gurney's has already arrived, The fruits and plants will come when it's time to plant.

The Wife already has lettuce planted in a container.

They had a deal where they would give you a $100 discount if orders were placed before Jan 30Th and Jo ordered on the last day.

We usually start our plants in the sunroom on the east side of the house.

Yes, I thought the same thing!  I can find Kentucky Wonder pole beans everywhere, just not in "bush" variety.

I would have had mine ordered weeks ago if "somebody else" in the house would decide what she wants!   :(  :wallbanging:

 

I'm trying to avoid ordering as much as I used to, $200-$300 worth of plants & seeds in the past!  Planning on an order from J. W. Jungs only this year.  Used to order from Henry Fields & Gurney's, but since they were bought by the same holding company, I've had poor service from them.  I also use Parks & Burpees at times.   ~~  Lowell

My in-laws are Roma folks.  Teresa & I don't care nearly as much for them though.
