Silly me...

I wish I had been smarter a couple months ago. I did not think to buy any "fall" seeds. And I also didn't realize that by the middle of July NO STORES carry seeds.

All I wanted was some corn and beans. Grrrrrrr.

Just had to vent ;) Lesson learned!

What about online stores such as Park Seeds and Gurneys and Burpee, etc?
Corn is the main reason I'm gardening!
I bought almost all of my seeds online.

RE: Silly me...

I did look at a few store, but I'm so darn cheap ROFL. When I pay 99 cents a pack normally, paying $3+ seems crazy. ROFL. Call me CHEAP!

I might still though. ;) I actually have a cart full on Gurneys site. LOL.

RE: Silly me...

Wow, corn and beans as fall crops. I'm planting peas, carrots, cauliflower, radishes, spinach and lettuce this fall.

Gotta love climates.

After reading up on seed rack companies, I will think long and hard for alternatives to those. Good seed that is far in excess of minimum government standards is worth a few bucks.

Enjoy your fall garden!

RE: Silly me,...

LOL I'm strange aren't I? I actually looked at our frost date and then was able to find a few corn online that would be ok before the frost. I "know" its not a fall crop but really wish I had planted some and now that I have room thought it would be worth a try. LOL.

As for beans, same thing, I actually just put my last few leftover seeds about a week ago and they are growing like crazy! It JUST started getting hot here. We've just had a week of all days above 80 for the first time this year.

RE: Silly me...

If you have a K mart they carry seeds, also the Home Depot here still has seeds, and my local nursery still has seeds. Hope that helps.

RE: Silly me...

Jeni: email your address and I'll send you a few of each. I have about half a package left. They're nothing special, but I might as well share em as they will probably be too old next year to germinate well.

RE: Silly me...

LOL, they are more expensive online than in the store for certain. I couldn't find exactly what I wanted in the stores though and it was so fun to read up on everything in the online catalog! :) Next thing I knew I had a cart full of stuff and had pressed the order button LOL.
I just planted my corn this past Sunday. It wasn't supposed to go in until August, but I think it will be okay a few days early!
