Heirloom Seeds


One of the blogs I follow, Rocky Oak Homestead turned me on to Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds.  I’ve ordered 31 new packs of heirloom seeds to supplement the seeds I have stored for my upcoming spring garden.

If you’re looking for seeds for your garden checkout the above site.  Prices are reasonable.

  2. Hey Sandy, Glad you had a good experience with them. I have used them for a couple of years and have never had a problem with them.The seeds always germinate. And they always send a free package of seeds! I just got another order from them and have one more huge order to place and then I should be done with seeds for a good long while...

    1. Thank you again for introducing me to Baker Creek.
      They sent me a packet of cantaloupe seeds. I love free things !!!! I've added the seeds to my others and can't wait to plant them.

  3. Sandy,

    They were my favorite seeds this year. Only one of the tomatoes I had from them didn't produce for me. The plants were beautiful but not.one.single tomato (Hillbilly was the variety). I'm sure it was something I did, or they just aren't suited for our climate. Everything else from them did beautifully, especially the herbs.

    I also had the opportunity to go to one of their stores outside of Hartford, CT. I was like a kid in a candy store, what a treat!

    1. They're my favorite place to order seeds now :-)
      I wish their stores we're close to us, I would be shopping all the time. Now that wouldn't make my husband happy one bit.

  4. Yep, I like Baker Creek seeds. And we're even close enough that we can visit their store / town up in Missouri, it's GREAT!

  5. I shall visit. I have been looking for a source of heritage seeds.

    Their packages are artistic. I could think of a few crafty ideas using those.

    1. Hey Gail,
      You'll like their site. If you place an order they send you a packet of free seeds (their choice). I agree their packets beautiful, I was thinking the same thing about using them in some crafts.

    1. Mrs. Mac, It's great to see you back! I love your picture :-) I won't forget to save my seeds. I've been saving seeds for a while, and I'm looking forward to having a large container of seeds for the future and plenty of free food.

    1. When we used to live in Fairfax County, Virginia we had to haul in good dirt in order to garden. The existing dirt,hard clay, planting seeds in this, nothing would grow.
