Colorado wrote.... I got mine today. Some hybrids . 90 packs way I count, 52 veggies, 16 herbs, and 22 flowers. 7 were corn, 3 green beans and one of peas and those packages are larger and take up more room. Box was full. Carrots, beets, cabbage, summer squashes, couple pumpkins, peppers hot and couple tomatoes, radish. Great. Hollyhocks and sweetpeas. Other stuff. Lettuce and such. Most all Hume and about 5 herbs OLds. I did notice all last year seed packages which they can't sell. Nothing wrong with them. And said they try to not send hybrids so you can save seed. ---------------------------------- Bonnie wrote... I got 99 packs too. I got 36 flower packs - which is pretty cool, because I got one set of flowers to plant by the bees to feed them...they will be in hog heaven with all these flowers. I also got 19 packs of 9 varieties of...BEANS! I also got 10 packs of cabbage...I planted cabbage to dry for animal feed over the winter, now I have more than enough for the experiment. Some of mine were organic seeds!
They requested a picture of our gardens, which I will send with a donation...
It was like Christmas in the Spring!
I got the seeds planted from the dinner garden, figured I'll let some of these go to seed and send them some seed for there work. Some of the seed I have is heirloom, so I think it will add there work.
This is just so cool that people are doing this! ----------------------------- Dan wrote... Good grief!! I sent off to seed Corps...81 packages of vegetable seeds, and 34 of flowers! Ed Hume seeds, to boot! Will send a donation, for sure. I never expected anything like this. Wonderful variety and they are all varieties that will do well over here. Thanks you Kim, for posting their site. wowsers.... --------------------------------

Thats all it takes,and Eddie Alberts' Buds will send you seeds,priority mail to boot.They spent 6 bucks to mail to me,Im sending them a 20 dollar voluntary donation. And if you would feel guilty to get seeds and cant afford to send a donation (hey,times are tough!,fixed income,whatever,they want to help EVERYBODY out) Dont worry,those of us still able to are sending enough I'm betting to cover all,so do send for em.
It cost them $9 to send me that box of seed. PLus the box cost too. I can manage a donation like Spuds. I have seen years I could not have. I sure would have liked to have had seeds for a garden then. Seeds were not so high back in the 60's. Not much income either. I got about complete garden. No winter squash or melons. We all got different stuff I think more for our areas.
