PACKIN’ SEEDS

Counting.  One two three four five….

Then weighing

Justin the seed addict loves seeds, Jordanne pleads “I can’t possible count any more of those itty bitty seeds” and me, well, don’t disturb I am counting 150, 151, 152……  drats, where was I…. 1, 2, 3, 4

Our entire dining room has turned into a seed storage and packing operation.   Last week we spent a few days counting seeds.  Ever try counting 350 celery seeds, 400 lettuce seeds?   You start getting a little cross eyed and funny in the head after looking at all those tiny seeds.  Good thing is we only had to do this once to get the weight set and from now on will pack by weight.

So far we’ve had over 70 requests for our  “Freedom Seeds” list and only had a handful of orders.

If you haven’t already asked or order please do so and get these huge bags of bulk seeds out of our living room and into your garden.

I await the mail these days with anticipation…..

    I’ve been doing this myself on a small scale, only the seeds I save and have been trading with other gardeners.

    Just checked again and still not able to load the freedomseed website. Went to google and several listings came up but would not load. In the past when I clicked the link in your posts the site did load, just had the comming soon notice. I would love to order seed immediatly. Do I email you for a list?

    Can you guys please send me a list too? thanks! -Dave 🙂

  4. ANny says:

    I am very interested in getting a list of the seeds you’ll have available

  5. Shirley says:

    OK, the email on the above post was an old one. It just pops up and I never changed it. Bad me. This one is good. Please send the list. Thanks.

  6. Talithia says:

    Email us with list if you can. I ordered most of mine already but would love to order from ya’ll.

    Just had to add Justen looks so darn happy in the above picture. Like a kid in a candy store……

  8. Linda says:

    I’d love to have a list of seeds. Please email or send one!

    I keep thinking I wish I had time to volunteer to come help you guys count seeds – it’s my kind of OCD! Sadly, with the grandparents out of town visiting their other kid, the child care gets tricky, and my little Agent of Entropy is just NOT conducive…

  10. rachel says:

    I would love a list as well.

  11. Elizabeth says:

    I would love to buy seeds from you.The freedomseeds.org site still only says “coming soon”.

  12. Kelly says:

    I would love a list as well. Thanks!

    Just got in my issue of Mother Earth News and guess who I saw in there?!

    Good article, but being that I follow your site pretty closely there wasn’t much new there, however it’s a great testimonial.

    By the way, I know a year around growing cycle is pretty cool and all, but ‘Why California?’ Earthquakes, and wildfires and such. Surely you can duplicate your efforts in a different locale? Just curious, I’m sure you get that question all the time.

  14. Sue says:

    I would love to receive a seed list also. I’m so late in ordering this year.

  15. Susan says:

    Can you mail me a list too? My husband is going to freak out, but I want some of those trombocino squash you guys grow if you’re offering those seeds, and I would love to see the whole list!

    Thanks!

    Cool; would love to have this: gonegreen AT snarfbargle DOT com . . .

    Two ideas: You can set up an free email and have an autoresponse that is your list . . . you still get the email to see who has requested it but you don’t have to mail it out! The autoresponse can contain links to an ORDER email too . . .

  17. Allyn says:

    I’ve got the list, and will be ordering this week! 😀

  18. Liana says:

    Could I please have the seed list too?

    I’m so excited for spring planting I can’t sit still!
