I online ordered my Serendipity sweet corn seed ( 1 1/2lbs) and my Kentucky Wonder Bush beans (4lbs) this morning.  Last year I had problems finding the Ky Wonder Bush bean seed, and Serendipity sold out quick as well.  So I went ahead & ordered online from Southern States Coop.  No getting caught bare seeded this time!

Above freezing? -6* this morning, Hard for me to think about the garden with ~3 feet of snow on it.  :wallbanging:  Glad you got your seed ordered, need to check out the seed catalogs myself.

Check out Seed companies like Baker Creek, Johnny's, and Seed Savers Exchange for Kentucky Wonder Bush bean.  You can order in bulk.

I think you mean "above ZERO"...

 

Where are you ordering from Daniel? I'm trying both of those that you mentioned and I too don't want to get caught empty handed!

It's not too early to order seeds. I remember my father sitting down with the Vesseys Seed catalogue to make out his order in February every year. It was the first acknowledgement of the lengthening days and the eventual coming of spring.

Ha! We have a Tropical Heat Wave in process up here but still not above freezing. Yesterday morning it was 17 below this morning it was 17.+34 degrees in 24 hours and it is still cold.  The Wife is still putting her seed order together.

Some of our seeds are on order as well, others we save some of from year to year. I store them in the cold room to preserve fertility. Veseys is one of our standby catalogues, always have good luck with them. Happy gardening!

Ordering from Southern States HERE  That is the seed page.  No shipping charges, just state sales tax.

We are planning our seed orders too. It's a great time to start planning, as it gets one's mind off of the cold and snow, to thinking of warmer weather, tilling the garden and getting your hands in the warm soil.
