    I haven't had too much time to browse it yet but it looks interesting-so many varieties! The prices for small seed packets are very reasonable too.

    Out of all the catalogs I got, I did not get on from them :(

    But when I did a search from heirloom veggies, their site came up, and I ordered way to many tomatoes from them. I threw all my othe seed catalogs away so that I am not tempted to order anything else...I have a thing for different tomatoes, but not enough room for all that I want or I would have ordered every variety. I think I have a problem....

    They don't have an 800 number; their phone number is 417-924-8917.

    Is anyone going to the Spring Vegetable Planting festival they are having?
    My husband and I are going and our son & daughter in law are also driving over to attend. Last year they had about a 1000 people attend from all over the US and even Japan!
    The speaker list sounds good and best of all the seminar and blue grass music gathering in the evening are free-they even have free primitive camping sites available.

    Hope to see some of you there,

    Kathy

    Five years ago I planted my first heirloom veggies. Since then my whole focus has been towards heirlooms. I have tried probably 15 kinds of tomatoes and 8 or more kinds of beans and other stuff. My favorite Tomatoes are Cherokee purple and Polish paste.
    I love these two, large and great taste. So have pretty much stopped looking at trying different tomatoes. I would like to hear what others think is the best beans and other stuff. So far I keep coming back to Blue lake bush. I also like the Carnival (acorn) squash. Not that they taste that much better, just like how they look.
