Q: I saw an article that you wrote that said there were garden vegetable seed catalogs available on the Direct Gardening Association website. I can’t find that site. Can you help?

A: Well, that group ended last year during the pandemic. So, to help you out, here are my favorite vegetable seed catalog companies.

Jere Gettle has been a vegetable gardener since he was 3. By 17, he was selling heirloom garden seeds. He now has three retail stores and an entire heirloom village you can visit. The Baker Creek catalog has over 1,500 seeds. He and his wife Emilee publish the Heirloom Gardener Magazine and the Heirloom Life Gardener book. For more information, check out

Dixondale Farms is the home of the Onionman and a lot of good onions.

The Harris Seeds catalog has a good selection of vegetables, plus flowers and tools. Find them at

The Chas. C. Hart Seed Co. is one of the few garden seed companies that understands the difference between genetically modified (GMO) and genetically engineered (GE) seeds. This company has been around for over 125 years and is an excellent source of garden seeds. If your charitable organization needs vegetable garden seeds this is the company to contact at

Double A Vineyards is an awesome source of grapevines.

Indiana Berry & Plant Co. is a great source for strawberries, brambles, blueberries, and grapevines.

Renee’s Garden has garden-tested and taste-tested heirloom and gourmet vegetables, flowers, and herbs. Her seed packets are very detailed, and Renee personally grows every plant variety before it is offered in the catalog. Find her catalog and cookbook at

The Territorial Seed Co. has all the essential seeds and supplies at

The Totally Tomatoes catalog may not be completely tomatoes, but it is close. Check it out at

Wood Prairie Family Farm is the place to get any kind of potato.

Many heirloom varieties are extremely rare and would probably be extinct if it weren’t for a community of gardeners who are committed to keeping these treasures alive. The Seed Savers Exchange (SSE) has provided an organized link for gardeners who feel the importance of maintaining the existing biodiversity of our food supply. SSE’s members are maintaining thousands of heirloom varieties, traditional Indian crops, garden varieties of the Mennonite and Amish, vegetables dropped from all seed catalogs, and outstanding foreign varieties.

Each year, hundreds of members use SSE’s publications to distribute seeds to ensure their survival. Each winter, SSE publishes a Seed Savers Yearbook that contains names and addresses of hundreds of members and 6,000 listings of rare vegetable and fruit varieties that they are offering to other gardeners. Seeds are obtained by writing directly to the members who are listing those varieties. To request the free 80-page color seed catalog, check out their website at

  1. How many people do you know that actually grows food?
    I mean more than a tomato plant in a pot.
    How many can grow enough to supply themselves or their family? Very few
    Back in the day EVERYONE grew some food, but people allowed the federal government to supply them with all their needs including their food.
    Big mistake
    Now look at people, mostly overweight, lazy and cant even keep a house plant alive for the most part.
    I wish this wasn't the case but we need to get real about whats occurring.
    The easiest thing to grow is lettuce greens in a shallow pan used for this type of thing.
    Under cheap fluorescent lights people can even do this in an apartment, but will they?
    People better pray this wont occur because most will starve to death including the most innocent and thats just wrong.

    • You are there, why cant you find your own seed suppliers?
      IF you cant find your own seeds, how can you manage the rest?
      The rest is the hardest part….
