Daniel, freezing does work well for me. Basements aren't common in Oklahoma due to our very clay soil, although the old foggies had root cellars, which I plan on building for myself in the near future. We are only gargardening a small plot currently, but we have plans to expand this year. We have a little over 3 acres so we have room to expand. My tomatoes and peppers did well in my flower garden on the south side of my house this summer, better than they ever did in the garden. Our soil is not that great on our homestead, but I've been working with it for about 4 ywars with amendments, and this past year was the best we've had.

Does freezing work well for you?  I keep old seeds in my cool dry basement, many last for 5 years or more.  You are right about not knowing what to choose.  Even with 2 acres, time and effort limit me.

Amy, I just got it - could not stop looking at the photos.  Just beautiful.  I think 2015 will be the year of the squashes!

Comment by Amy on December 13, 2014 at 9:53am
Daniel, I have a whole box of seeds from them in my freezer. ... I'm pretty sure I have more than 100 varieties lol its hard to choose bc you want everything

Yes, rareseeds.com is amazing! I look forward to getting theither catalog every new year.
Comment by Daniel W on December 13, 2014 at 9:52am

p.s.  at the bottom of that catalog link, they have one that you can page through to browse - but the image is small for my eyes. 

Comment by Daniel W on December 13, 2014 at 9:51am

This is the most amazing catalog - beautiful photos, incredible varieties.  I grew some of their seeds last year.  I wish I could order a hundred varieties from them

Barbara, I'm so glad you are OK!  I drove a Yaris rental - really nice car.  My pickup is a 2000 Mazda B series compact truck.  It's been handy.  Nothing fancy.  Seconding Randall's recommendation to have a liner.  I've hauled tons of compost, bark mulch, pavers, trees, bricks, house remodel stuff...  but no idea what is out there or what is best.

Comment by Barbara Livingston on December 13, 2014 at 8:28am

Randall, I'm okay just feel like I've had my bell rung very loud. :) On my way to chiropractor after I pick up rental car. My little Yaris didn't win the round with the big pickup, but no blood or broken bones were involved. As the cop at the scene said "it did what it was suppose to do", meaning the car withstood the impact and I'm alive.

I looked at local Toyota dealership website and all they had was really big trucks. Thanks so much for info on Nissan. I'll look at them. I'll definitely have to get a used one. My insurance covers a replacement vehicle but, not sure how much "replacement". 

As much as I liked my little car, I would be very happy with a little truck. I really need a load of dirt and I've been trying to figure out how to get it without paying $100 delivery for $40 worth of dirt!  Trashing my car to get a truck wasn't part of the plan. lol 

BTW, talked to my friend after accident, she said "your guardian angel was watching over you!". I took a deep breath and said "well, I don't know about that" and moved on.  grrrrrr. 

Comment by Randall Smith on December 13, 2014 at 8:07am

Oh wow, Barbara! Sorry about the accident. Hope you're okay.

Only two companies make small pickups nowadays (Toyota and Nissan). There may be some good used ones out there, a lot cheaper. I think they're ideal for a single person. And I'm glad mine has a bed liner.  Good luck.

Sighhhhh. It's sad when you envy someone a truck full of horse poop, but, I do. :)  A pickup truck re-arranged my car yesterday and me a little bit. I'm not too bad off as I can still think and I'm thinking I'll get a small pickup to replace my little car and then I can haul all my garden stuff. :)
