    We went to this festival, too. John, you really pointed out some great finds that we overlooked. Yes, it really is located in the middle of nowhere. Take the dirt road route from the west to avoid the traffic. Fantastic review! Thank you for squeezing this trip into your busy schedule. Hope you got to take some seeds home on the plane!

    Thank you John. The kale seeds I got from you are growing great. I was planning to go to the festival but thought it was too far. Now I know better. Hope to see you next year.😊

    Excellent video! While watching I was thumbing thru my garden journal and found the receipt from my Seeds Now order. Most of my garden this year is from their seeds. They’ve got wildflower mixes as well, and I’ve scattered those seeds all around the perimeter fence for pollinators, hummingbirds and butterflies. You are correct when saying to support the companies and individuals who take pride in their product and protect the future of heirloom varieties.

    I'm always surprised that ppl actually like baker creek. I tried to order a catologue from them and it was worse than pulling teeth. I'll pass.

    Check out MIGardener. It’s a company owned. It’s a company that started in the basement of their house. Everything are heirloom seeds and are very reasonable priced. Their a good company to work with.
