SEEDS!!!greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Went to my local feed store, checking for seeds. They have the new spring seeds in. They have flower seed's on display, the sales clerk had to get mine from the back. You can never have too many seeds. This may be a good weekend to get some for a Victory Garden, just in case.

I ordered some heirloom seeds from Burpee last week. I had requested their catalog last Summer. But you can get them at www.burpee.com. the heirloom seeds are non-hybridized; you can save the seeds and use them next year....
Saving seeds is a bit of an art. The authority is Susan Ashworth, her book is Seed to Seed, available at most libraries or thru Amazon.

I ordered AND PAID FOR seeds last May from a midwest company, expressly saying " Do not ship now; please ship in the fall , as I want them for year 2000 ." It was mid November and I hadn't heard a thing since an August call to confirm my shipment. They assured me that they would be shipped in December . About a week later , I received a letter saying " We are sorry , but your $76 dollar order canNOT be filled till spring " !!!
I wrote them a threating letter , saying that their inepitude may cost lives here in late 2000 , AND , if I did not receive full reinbursment by the 30th of November, I would contact my lawyer, a superior court judge and life-long friend and sue for damages . You guessed it !! The check was here, pronto ! Actually , I have another load of seeds from another company AND bought from the local hardware store also , enough corn to plant 3+ acres. Don't live on more than one , BUT , I know where the land is close by , AND , where three working tractors WITH PLOWS reside, with drivers . Plan ahead ... for your family and others . Got jars to can the produce ?? I DO ! Eagle ... watching ; circling ; waiting .
