Thanks for chiming and and offering a good tip. Much appreciated.
I (finally) organized my seeds this winter – really don’t need any more this year, but I’m sure I’ll end up adding a few packets to my seed collection. There’s always something new to try, and it’s fun experimenting. Like KL5 said, it’s cheap February thrills. (or January, March, April. . . 😉
Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I really like SSE and I’m glad they’re now in vogue as more people become interested in growing some of their own food.
Are you still looking for them? I’ve asked around and one person tells me there used to be a place called The Seed Store on Cicero Road just south of the Stevenson. Don’t know if it is still there and nothing is coming up on Google.
To get your seeds started try some Ubiogrow on them check us out at
Bummer, I was there working the master gardener booth but had to run home right after so no time to shop. (Always next year!)
Hi kI5, Thanks for signing up for an account to comment. I go to that Menard’s too. I purchased some seeds there for a similar themed post I’m going to make to the “MrBrownThumb” garden blog later. But I’ll let you in on a secret: I like Menard’s and the seed selection there, but the same Burpee seeds at Wal-Mart are cheaper. Even when you factor in the “sale” Menard’s is having. Also, the selection at Lowe’s is a little different than both places, but a bit pricier.
I have been very happy with Seed Savers Exchange. I see you have too in looking at the photo. Thanks for your comment on my blog a little while ago!
