    Just got back from the feed store with an unexpected bonanza of seeds. They had all of their left over seeds from American seed co. marked down to a penny. Yup, one cent for a pack, that normally sells for 59 cents. They didn't have much of a selection left, and only had 99 packs of veggie seeds left. I bought them all. I have 99 packs of sweet basil, onions, yellow squash, lettuce, cauliflower and cabbage. Lots and lots of cabbage. About 40 packs. Not my favorite veggies, but at a penny, I can learn to love them. We also got 12 packs of flower seeds, marigolds and alyssum.

    Not a bad haul for $1.11. Can anyone beat that?

    Wow, what a great bargain. Now you can sing the little song, "Here a seed, there a seed, everywhere a good seed" as you plant. Lucky you!

    Great deal, Curtis!

    I have a deal for you, too...if you don't need all those seeds, I'll pay you ten cents for each packet that I could use. I'll even include a self-addressed, stamped return envelope. Interested?
