Hometown Seeds

I was recently approached by Hometown Seeds about their new website- they sell non-GMO flowers, herbs, vegetables, and what they call "Survival Seeds."  In fact, they offered to send me a free "survival seeds" packet (a $35 value) if I posted a link to their survival seeds page.  Ordinarily I wouldn't have responded, BUT they also gave me a coupon code for you guys...I felt bad leaving you out of that loop :)

So, I'll tell you guys all about the survival seeds when they come (it's going to be a vacuum-sealed mylar bag, with enough seeds to plant 3/4 acre and a freezer life of 10 years.  The thought is to be able to grow enough food for my family in event of an emergency.)

They have this to say about GMO seeds:
"Seeds are the core of our business and vital to life on our planet. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. We pledge that we will not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds. We are not confident in the safety of GMO seeds and therefore will not sell them to our valued customers. We believe they are being released for public use prematurely. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds."

Go check out Home Town Seeds- they have good prices, and a great selection of veggies and flowers from what I see, and reasonable shipping.  There aren't a lot of varieties of each vegetable, but there is a good total selection of the garden workhorse plants (artichoke, asparagus, tomato, kale, etc.)

Use the coupon code "thanks" to get 10% off your total order, until February 28th.
