Hi Joseph, I sent you a recent letter requesting vegetable seeds, after losing my entire garden from flooding. with 4 children and a disabled husband, money is tight. you wrote in a article you would share your seeds with someone who this has happened too. how much should i send you for postage? need your address. thanks for your help diana

Joseph I live in Somerset Ky and our spring, summer and early fall is our growing season. I am wondering if your seeds would prosper here. I am planting in large pots when I can due to disability. So if you would think on this. research and let me know it the answer is good I would like to order tomatoes and some spinach.

I plant Spinach the day after the snow melts. If you can get it in early, it should do great in a pot.

One of the nice things about landraces is that there is so much diversity and so many different types in a variety that if you plant enough of them, something is bound to do well. Hope you don't look at me oddly when I confess that I've never grown a mature vegetable in a pot....

So far we have had no snow..just rain. Its been a really weird winter, so far, for us . I plan on starting my pots after the last frost. So if you go to C-mail and tell me about how much it would cost for 2 or 3 types of tomatoes and enough spinach seeds to do 2 whiskey barrel size pots I would appreciate it.

I typically plant spinach 10 weeks before our last expected spring frost. The earlier you can get it planted the better.

cMail headed your way in the morning.

SweetPea11: I have been working out of town this winter since the garden is covered with snow. Hoping to get lots of seeds mailed this next week. I love seed swaps.

I don't grow anything in pots, so I'm pretty clueless about that, but I bet some of the dwarf varieties would work great... MicroTom perhaps. I definitely think that determinate would be the way to go in a pot.
