Friends - Sad news today. I was notified via e-mail that Bountiful Gardens (www.bountifulgardens.org) is going out of business after 30 plus years.
This saddens me greatly.
I think I first found Bountiful Gardens in 2004. They had an amazing selection of heirloom seeds reasonably priced (my wheat, corn, and barley yields that year were never beaten). The service was prompt and friendly, and it came to where every year I looked forward to getting their catalog and planning both for my regulars as well as my 2-3 larks I would try just to see if they would grow.
I have no idea why they are going out of business (and they apparently have not announced it) but I will miss them a great deal.
One thought: currently they are selling almost everything at 15% off, so if you want to pick up some unusual seeds now might be the time. I am building up my grain experiments....
Any suggestions for other heirloom, non-GMO seeds?
