I received FIVE garden seed/plant catalogs yesterday.


If you sometimes order plants by mail as I do, you'll find that some companies are great and others are on the sketchy side.
Before you order from a company, check them out at www.gardenwatchdog.com to see how they have treated other customers.
yes - this used to be sold!

    If you take a bunch of old-fashioned-looking vegetable seed packets (the ones with the colored drawings and not real pictures) and put them together in a frame, it looks great in the kitchen. I had one over the stove and a big one over the kitchen table for many years.
