Southern Exposure Seed catalog is the first to come
I got the Southern Exposure newletter that says my catalog is on the way! They say, "It's not winter yet, but we hope you'll accept the season with open arms once you're cozy at home with our new seed catalog, dreaming up next year's garden." The newsletter mentions several conferences that will be taking place this winter season with an invitation to join others to discuss gardening techniques and seed saving.
What I like about this catalog is that it explains their perference for open polinated and heirloom seed and their rejection of GMO crops even though if people save the seed they buy from Southern Exposure, they have no reason to buy seed the next year. The price of the seed is comparable to other major seed stores and the planting information is extensive and very helpful. For example, with the open pollinated corn seed, they include tips on using mineral oil on the silk to discourage corn ear worms.
