inexpensive heirloom seeds?
What are your sources, other than trading? I've traded on GW and enjoyed it but it was time-consuming - some years I'd just like to place an order and be done with it.
Pinetree has been my go-to, but last year with seed packages running between one and two dollars, it added up.
I just ordered 25 packets for $25 from Cherry Gal - 2012 seeds - haven't received them yet. She carries a lot of what Baker Creek has.
There's legumes from the bulk bins - have gotten Puy Lentils and Scarlet Runner Beans - Whole Foods is expensive for food but you can get the equivalent of a seed packet for a quarter - I guess you could try grain too. Saving the seeds from farmer's market tomatoes. Seed snitching - if it's hanging over the public sidewalk; it's fair game. And ones that are maybe not fair game.
My brother says the Walmart where he lives in NC has ten cent seed packets, not the Walmart here by a long shot!
What are your inexpensive, cheap, stay-in-budget sources?
