My Favorite Places to Order Seeds

Southern Exposure Seed Exchange- All organic, lots of heirloom, great catalog

Territorial Seed - This is the guys who created the Complete Organic Fertilizer

Johnny’s Seeds - Really good tools and large selection of organic and heirloom seeds

Sow True Seed - Smaller, but great company in North Carolina. We visited them and love what they are doing.


Buy a watering can or sprayer to spare your seeds and seedlings harsh hose water.

If you don’t have your rain barrel set up yet, leave the watering can filled overnight. Most of the chlorine will evaporate.

In Mississippi heat, container need to be watered every day. Stick the watering can by your car keys. It just takes 2-3 minutes on your way out.
