Frugal Christmas Gifts: Heirloom Seeds

Every gardener enjoys the time in the winter when the seed catalogs arrive.  It's great to relax and plan your spring garden.  It helps make the cold more endurable when you're dreaming of growing your own fresh vegetables and beautiful flowers.

I prefer to plant heirloom, open pollinated, non-gmo seeds.  The most frugal way to garden is to collect your own seeds to plant during the next gardening season and the only way you can do this is by growing open pollinated plants.  Because of the Gettles' strong commitment to being caretakers of this earth I prefer to shop at their company, Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds.

The link I've provided goes to the section of their web site where you can order a gift certificate.  Let your favorite gardener have the pleasure of designing their garden while knowing that they can certainly afford it due to your kind gift to them.

Take the time to browse the Baker Creek web site.  It is beautiful and inspiring.  Have fun!

God bless,
