    Fantastic. As a new homeowner in Pittsburgh, I'm really looking forward to growing a vegetable garden this year. The seeds available were everything I was looking for, and more!

    Omg so awesome! I got almost everything I need this year. Saved over 100 dollars and got mostly organic open pollinated. When I left there were still tons of everything and we tried hard to be conservative. Definitely a great resource considering most similar brands are 3 dollars a package. Looking forward to being able to contribute next year.

    .
    More>>MORGANTOWN (AP) — West Virginia University is making seeds of a blight-resistant tomato available to home gardeners.

    The West Virginia 63 tomato was developed at WVU 50 years ago as part of the state's centennial celebration. WVU says a limited supply of seeds will be available starting March 4.

    Retired WVU professor Mannon Gallegly bred the tomato. He says the West Virginia 63 is a good for both canning and for slicing in sandwiches.

    Seeds can be obtained through the WVU Extension Agriculture and Natural Resources Unit at (304) 293-6131. Seeds are limited to one packet per household while supplies last. They also can be requested through local WVU Extension offices.

    mail sase to :

    I called today and they still had seeds available, but were getting a 1000 requests a day.

    Bank envelopes which are free, make good seed keepers. Just ask your teller and they gladly welcome the advertising.
