No... I need to. Thank s for the reminder :)

i just look at the back of the packages and pick out the ones that are non gmo, organic, and/or work best for our zone. We were surprised the first year we bought non gmo and organic seeds. We thought for sure they'd be failed crops, but they did the best.

Baker Creek is wonderful--I love their colorful print catalogue!

Annie's Heirloom has a smaller variety, but they're nice, too.

Both are non-gmo, etc....

Hubs does the growing, he uses seeds from the sweet peppers that we bought for me to eat, not sure what brand and then buys plants for our tomatos

i finally got some started. but my seed table is blocked in by random beer making supplies. so i only got some "winter sown" seeds started (i can send info on that method if interested). i like bakers creek. seed savers. any of those heirloom seeds. monsanto owns a crap ton of the bigger name seed companies :( not that the seeds themselves are GMO, but i don't want to support that. which i found out this year, after i bought up some seeds on sale end of season last year. 

i also realized that it's almost march, and i haven't pruned my peach tree yet... i'm so far behind this year

Not yet, I'll probably buy seedlings sicne we don't have a good place to start them indoors.

Apparently, our growing season goes until September or October here in the Texas panhandle.  I'm going to be starting the peppers and tomatoes here soon.  I have to grow everything in pots, so hopefully it works out!

Nope :( when I was going to start them in our greenhouse we got heavy snow and a blizzard...which blew a panel off the roof filling it with snow. Now I am glad I put it off.
