  • I would like non-hybrid seeds!

    If anyone can direct me to a site where non-hybrid seeds are sold
    (non-hybrid is a seed that can reproduce, eg. not altered genetically to only grow once)
    I would appreciate it. Or, better yet, I can trade info! I have a thorough library of books on survival (nothing illegal, just old or out of print) that I would be willing to loan out, if need be.
    Thanks for Posting!

        You took the words right out of my mouth. I have an old book from the 70s with lists of names of people that have seeds to sell/trade. I haven't seen it in years. I am pretty sure it is SeedSavers. Thanks for the link. I had forgotten the name of it.

        Rusty, Rareseeds is an awesome site. I like the way it is organized. I think I'll place an order and start my own seed collection.

        Thanks to both of you!
        JUST CURIOUS? PRUNES ARE DEHYDRATED PLUMS. SO WHERE DOES PRUNE JUICE COME FROM?

          I am going to do my part. (see my garden post) and will grow nothing but the rare stuff. Most tomatoes taste like tomatoes. And a lot of the old breeds have some good overtones and earthiness. So, I will grow the old varieties.

          I will keep everyone updated.

                Burpee also carries non-hybrids. Far more than I expected.

                    Parthenox, I have two go-to sources: Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds (rareseeds.com) and Skyfire Garden Seeds (skyfiregardenseeds.com). The first is the larger of the two and is located in Mansfield, Mo. The latter is an Internet-only mom-and-pop shop near Kanopolis, Kan. Both offer excellent service.

                      I buy alot of heirloom seeds on Ebay, much better prices than the cataloge stuff! I especially like 1lucky1972, all the seeds are a $1 a package and all are heirloom.

                        I also buy & receive heirloom seeds. This is our 2nd yr. to plant them. We have 5 raised beds in the city. Our melons didn't fare too well last yr. Think they didn't have enough room to grow. The Thai 5 star cukes from Baker creek, did exceptionally well. Tomatoes did O.K. except for the horn worms. Think I'll buy some praying mantis eggs & unleash them on the worms. I think the key is the worm tea that we used. De-chlorinate your water for 24 hrs. with a aquarium filter in a 5 gal. bucket. Thats the lst step. Then add your worm castings, bat guano, & whatever you want for your worm tea. Percolate that stuff for another 24 hrs. Place it in a pump sprayer, you're good to go.
