Heritage and heirloom seed shopping

Preparing my garden last year

We’re getting ready for spring planting already.  Mentally prepared ~ Ha!  We’re still buried in snow.  I’ve been browsing online for heritage, heirloom seeds.  We want to grow non-GMO and to be able to save our vegetable seeds from year to year.

I’ve been browsing Salt Springs Seed Company and Heritage Harvest Seed.  They are Canadian companies.  I like that I can print up the order form and send them a cheque instead of ordering and paying online.  There are so many varieties to choose from!!  It’s taking me a while to read through all the choices. Canada has a lot of different growing zones in so I’m focusing on vegetable varieties that would do well on the prairies. I’m zone 3b.

Where do you get your heritage seeds?  What do you look for when choosing them?  Do you have favourites?
