that I'm teaching vegetable gardening classes and doing presentations to garden clubs (where I share seeds)! We can plant them in the two vegetable gardens at the botanical garden where I work! I can share them with the Master Gardeners who are doing a Plant-a-row for the Hungry garden! I need more warm-season vegetable seeds to donate to grow transplants for the April plant sale! My friend and colleague has a school garden -- spring greens for the kids! etc. etc. I have two vegetable gardens of my own, too. Anyway, you get the idea. Uh, I need to actually assess what I have before ordering more, but... happily seeds are an inexpensive hobby.

And then I started looking at the Comstock Seed catalog, a venerable (200+ year old) seed company purchased a couple of years ago by Jere and Emilee Gettle of Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds (their book, The Heirloom Life Gardener, is lovely). I was a pleased recipient of a review copy, offered to Garden Writers Association members.
Yikes, I may need to order some interesting heirlooms from Comstock, too.
