We grow our vegetables in two Southern California community garden plots. I always start my seeds under lights and, when appropriate, with a heating mat. I have been buying most of my seeds from Fedco, but have lately wanted the most recently developed disease-resistant tomatoes because our community garden has rampant tomato disease, including late blight. When I perused the S&S catalog I was impressed by the breadth of their tomato and other vegetable offerings and decided to give the company a try. I put in a big order, mostly on faith because there were few reviews of the company. So far líve started extra early tomatoes, Katarina early cabbage and Artwork broccolini. Germination has been just short of 100%. I cannot comment on the longevity of the seeds, but will follow up this review to do so. At $2 a seed packet, S&S is a great resource for the small grower. The seeds were carefully packed and arrived promptly.

I found this company after seeing their product in a catalog. I ordered the large Nut Wizard . This is a great tool. I have several large walnut trees and this thing really works. Just roll it over the walnuts and they are contained in a basket. Hold the basket over a 5 gallon bucket and they drop right in. What a back saver.I wish I would have found the Nut Wizard years ago. I love it!!!
