Yes, they’ve already started. I got Pinetree Garden Seeds and Thompson & Morgan before Thanksgiving. Today it was McClure & Zimmerman, Seymour’s Selected Seeds, Totally Tomatoes, and Vermont Bean Seed Company. I believe they are all owned by the Jung Seed Company, which also seems to own Roots & Rhizomes, Horticultural Products and Services, and R.H. Shumway’s Seeds, if the contact addresses are any indication. And who knows? Jung might own others as well.

In its own way, frost may be one of the most beautiful things to happen in your garden all year . . . Don’t miss it. Like all true beauty, it is fleeting. It will grace your garden for but a short while this morning. . . . For this moment, embrace frost as the beautiful gift that it is.
