Sources for vegetable seeds

vegetable seedsI’ve had a few folks ask me where I’ve gotten the vegetable seeds that we’ll be growing in our garden this year. So here is the list of veggies from last Sunday’s column. You’ll notice a number (or numbers) following each variety, which will correspond with the list of sources down below.

Also, if you live in the Spokane area, remember to check out the selection of vegetable seeds at Northwest Seed & Pet. Their employee who orders all of their seeds asked me a few months ago to give her the list of what I’d be growing, with the intent of getting in as many of them as possible. She knows readers will be asking for them!

Thanks so much for your interest.
