Traditionally we've always just gone up to Wal-mart or Home Depot to buy seeds (generally Burpee), but the more I read about some of Monsanto's (who bought out Burpee) questionable practices, the more I'm interested in just getting back to the basics.
I've been looking around the Baker Creek website, and am curious whether anyone around here has ordered from them. They have a great rating from "Garden Watchdog". If you've ordered from them, what varieties did you grow, how did they do?
Besides Baker Creek, can you suggest any other reputable and cost effective companies I can take a look at? Thank you!
I was looking into heirloom seeds as well, and I found this helpful site with lists and lists of info on Heirloom seeds.
To answer your question, here is a list of heirloom seed companies:

I have been looking at Baker Creek for my winter order. I have heard great things and look forward to trying them out for myslef
I love Baker Creek and Seed Savers. I also recently "discovered" Landreth seeds. They've been in business since 1784 and sell only heirloom seeds. Due to a lawsuit, they've been trying to raise funds and are selling their catalogs for $5 each. Best $5 I've spent in a long while. Loads of information on the seeds listed. I can't wait to get garlic and blue potatoes from them and start growing!
