Kathy, First of all, if

Kathy, First of all, if I listed ALL the companies I order from, it would be too embarrasing. But one of my favorites is Seeds of Change out of Santa Fe, NM. Commitment to offering the highest quality organically grown, open-pollinated seed is what initially drew me to this company. It’s a bonus that all seeds and seedlings are 100% GMO-free and are grown by the company and their exclusive network of certified organic family farms and nurseries. AND they carry a wonderful line of farm tested tools from Clarrington Forge. Check out their site at www.seedsofchange.com. There is a 5% discount on items ordered online.

Another co is RH Shumway out of Randolph, WI. Go to hpsseed.com and check out all the new items offered. And most of the hardware (trays, ground covers, etc) are shipped postpaid. That alone saves me a bundle.

And if Borlotto lingua di Fuoco (Tongue of Fire) beans or endive Riccia Romanesco da taglio or zucchini Verde d’Italia (Green of Italy) grab your imagination, check out Seeds from Italy out of Winchester, MA. Go to www.growitalian.com. My daughter raises livestock and has an abundancy of horse manure so this year we plan on trying to grow the mushrooms offered by this company. I’ll let you know how it all works out.

In the end, this may be the most important thing about frost: Frost slows us down. In spring, it tempers our eagerness. In fall, it brings closure and rest. In our gotta-go world–where every nanosecond seems to count–slowness can be a great gift. So rather than see Jack Frost as an adversary, you could choose to greet him as a friend.
