Ordering Organic Seeds for my Summer Garden

It was a productive, and cold, winter Sunday yesterday in Maine. I finally hunkered down and finished the Excel spreadsheet of all the seeds we have. This was quite time consuming as it contains what the seeds are, their name, where they are from, the year the were grown, and how many seeds there are. Once that was done I compared what we have to my wish list. I then nailed down everything I wanted to buy and started looking at my go to seed catalogues;  Fedco, High Mowing Organic Seeds, Botanical Interests, Pinetree Garden Seeds, and Seed Savers Exchange.

I then picked everything we need, think we need, or want. After this I compared, made sure it was organic. I have to admit that it got confusing between heirloom and organic at times, and ordered.

I found almost everything except organic dahlia tubers (stay tuned for an update on Dahlias soon). I also would like some organic Yarrow, and Penny Royal for companion planting which we are going to try this year. I am sure I am super over-ordered but, as I said to French hubby who mentioned I should be careful not to order the whole catalog, at least my little vice is ordering organic seeds and not wanting diamonds and fancy cars. Now, all I have to do is wait for seeds, and plan out the whole garden, aie!
