I have had good luck with territorial. The guy who started it wrote a good book called, "The Intelligent Gardener". Based on that, he really knows his stuff, and all seeds raised from there are very reputably grown. I also had good luck with transplants from there.

Another good one from Oregon is Adaptive seeds. I grew several varieties from there, and live in MN. All did fabulous. I live the selection of squash and Kale. Check them out. Let us know what you think.

Oregon must be a good place to have seed company. I like victory seeds and if customer service is important to you then I think this is the company. The owner gets right back to you on emails.

My first herb sprouts have just come up, looks like sage was the fastest to germinate at around 36 hours.

Only Burpee's so far. I'm going to try Mascotte green beans. I'm a patio gardener.

Burpee's Big Boy may not be the best tasting tomato, but for me, it has been the best producing. I planted it as a replacement, late in the season, and I'm still getting tomatoes from it...even with spider mites. My determinates all succumbed to heat early, and then the mites hit, and wiped out my other beef stake before I caught them. Never had spider mites before in the 30+ years here. Now I can't seem to get rid of them. But 'Big Boy" is still going strong if I remember to spray on time.

I'm in the crazy seed ordering mode for our Master Gardener plant sale. I love to use some of the smaller vendors where I can--they often provide a really good value and a nice assortment of seeds. Some of my favorites are Sample Seeds, Tomatofest, Renaissance Seeds, Johnny's seeds, and Urban Farmer (local to us).

Deeby, nice to see another container gardener on this site. be sure to let us all know what your planting, seed types, soil mixes, insect control, etc. all important to container gardening, and we all can use whatever help we can come up with.

Thanks Richard, will do. For potting mix I like Miracle Gro's organic. I used to use Edna's Best but they started adding SO MUCH perlite that it always rose to the top and ruined the pretty look of my container garden. I was always scraping it off.
What are you planning?

Deeby, sorry to reply so late but most of my last month has been tied up with the loss of my father in law. One of those old WWII guys who once gone, we will never see the likes of again. Lived a full life to 93 years old and passed quietly at hospice last month. Anyway, I guess I'll be seeing you in the new fruit and vegetable forum for 2019, https://garden.org/thread/go/1...

14 to be exact. But, i also have a plot of purple majesty, one of yellow, and Idaho type potatoes that I planted late summer and hopefully overwintered.
From the closest bed is onions, second bed is onions, 2 potatoes, 2 saved for something else. 3rd bed is yellow potatoes from the grocery store that sprouted. Fourth bed is a assortment of colors from walmart. Since I hate digging up potatoes, I'm planning to just pull up the liners, and push the dirt off the potatoes.

Who is still gardening? How far south do we have to go to see fall gardens still thriving?
