Anyone do business with Clifton Seed Co in Georgia? www.cliftonseed.com Their catalog looks real good and they do handle Attribute sweet corn, which Twilley does not. I also got some prices from one of their salesman, which look better than Twilley on the few selected items I checked - but minumum orders are larger. I think most of their seeds are sold in multiples of 1M - and a bag of 25M for Attribute corn. They don't seem geared to the smaller market grower like Twilley, but many of us can handle the larger minumums on certain vegetables - especially if we know how to store the seed correctly..

We could use more education on the details of storing seed in the freezer if anyone has a link or advice.

The old open pollinating seeds we used to grow were so cheap that we never bothered with saving them from year to year - but these new sophisticated varieties are NOT cheap! 100 Superpik squash seeds with the precocious gene spliced-in - 15 bucks! We tried them this year and they are SUPER (no green streaking at all)- but 15 cents each! Ouch. I can understand it, though, with all the R&D involved in developing these cultivars. There's nothing wrong with green streaked squash, but people will not buy it!
