Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds

By far the best catalog that has arrived this winter is Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. I sent for this catalog based on their rating at garden watchdog. I have never seen such a beautiful catalog. Now this is not a solicited or paid endorsement. I really just love the catalog so much that i needed to tell you about it.

If you have never visited their site it is www.rareseeds.com. You can send for their free catalog there. It is a must for any heirloom enthusiast. The mouth watering selection of melons and tomatoes is out of this world. Baker Creek carries seeds from over 70 countries with 1275 varieties. They even have a great forum site at www.idigmygarden.com. They have also created a village called Bakersville that can be seen at www.streetsofbakersville.com It's such an amazing place. I have put it on my list of places to see.

The catalog is full of full color, full page images of spectacular veggies. I wasn't able to resist the tomato section. I circled nearly every variety available. Reds, pinks, whites, yellows, oranges, purples, and striped, a tomato for every taste!



The catalog states that all of their seeds are non-hybrid, non-GMO, non-treated and non-patented. These seeds are as good and pure as it gets! I look forward to doing lots of great business with Baker Creek.

I don't get this catalogue (a lot of seed companies don't crossborder sell their product) but it looks like a good one and I hope you let us know how you fare with them and their seeds!

My parents order from this catalog and we borrowed theirs this year. My husband enjoyed it so much he would sit and look at it every night as he watched tv.
We are planning to place an order soon, I would love to visit the store. Did you read about how he started out at only 17, working from his bedroom. I think?
good post

I love their catalog, and their website. There is so much information there. I plan on having a separate garden this year with just heirlooms.
