    Not sure if this site has been posted here before, but I have been looking for a while for the edamame soybean to plant in my garden. This is the only company I have found that carries these. So, if there are any heirloom seeds that you are looking for and haven't found them yet, take a look through this catalog. They may just have what you are looking for!

    Happy gardening!
     
  2. I've ordered form www.rareseeds.com for two years now. I absolutly love their catalog! It is all color and has lots of pictures. It has the most variety of heirloom peppers, eggplants, melons, tomatoes, and more. Order early though. Some varieties sell out fast.

    You just have to grow it to see it for yourself! Just wish they had more pictures.

    I hope to receive their catalog in the near future. I'm really hoping that I can try those edamame seeds this year. I may look into some of their other "exotic" seeds, like that mellon!

    Gardenchick, have you been pleased with your orders from them?

    Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds (www.rareseeds.com) is my all time favorite seed source. There is another I rely on for any varieties Baker Creek does not have: Evergreen Seeds. They have eight varietes of edamame (edible soybeans) alone. I highly recommend both.

    You can go to the Garden Watchdog to see customer reviews of Baker Creek, (which has been in the top ten in customer satisfaction for a few years), and over 3000 other garden companies.

    You may also find this site useful for heirloom vegetable information and other general gardening information.

    :)

    Baker Creek Seeds is about 10 minutes from our house :p It's a quaint little setup to visit, typical homestead with a few of everything.
    Great seeds, and yes their customers give them rave reviews.
