    Heirloom seed sources

    I am wanting experiment/ learn to grow more veggies this year. So far I know I want tomatoes, carrots, onions and oats. Yes, oats. Won’t do much, but want to start now.

    Would also like like to try wheat. Maybe in the fall


    just searching reveals many options for buying, but wondering what the INGO collective suggests.

    PS tomatoes are mainly for sauce.

    You might try https://www.rareseeds.com/. I just ordered this year. Also, https://mypatriotsupply.com/. I have used them for a few years and are cheaper than rareseeds. It is a prepper site, too. Good luck with your crops.

    Johnny select seed is good. Not sure on how much land you have or growing zone but I would suggest looking into something called permaculture. It is permanent agriculture. It's planting perennial food crops that you plant once and harvest for 30+ years. Like asparagus, sea kale, fruit trees, nut trees ect.... You still do a annual garden but this gives you crop producing goods every year with no to little work.

    Even most of the big seed companies sell some non hybrid seeds. You just have to pay attention.

    I am in Avon. Very little land right now. Want to learn before I try to expand.

    As an experiment I tried just planting various beans bought in plastic bags from Walmart. The germination rates were very high and I kept beans from these plants to replant the next year and got the same results. The black beans performed very well, we had a few meals from them, but it's a lot easier just to buy a bag and cook them.

    The supplier for the My Patriot Supply seed can is in Indiana, so it is likely they will grow good here. Not all seeds do well in all climates and soil types.

    https://migardener.com/ and https://www.therustedgarden.com/ are both good sources for seeds and info. Both have youtube channels with a ton of info. I'm only growing in containers right now but had better luck last year than I ever have due in large part to these channels, along with a few others. The Rusted Garden has a seed starting series that is super helpful, especially if you're new to trying to grow your own stuff.
