Adaptive Seeds had reopened for business as of tonight. They've been closed for a bit, trying to catch up from the pandemic. The site literally started accepting orders as I was browsing it tonight. They're supposed to be sending out an email to their mailing list, but I don't think that's happening until morning (if they even remember to send it out in all of the chaos.) Figured I'd let people here know so they can beat the rush. They're already sold out of a number of things.

Thanks, I have been waiting for their return. Was getting worried because December is almost over and still no updates. Going to browse and see if there is anything new as well. They have a lot of harder to find runner beans and other such things.

Edit: They aren't accepting new order apparently. "Still a few days" according to the notice. Suppose I could fill up a cart and hopefully it saves. Taking screenshot of my cart either way.

Woops. Yeah. Looks like they accidentally turned things on before they meant to. My order went through, but now they've updated the site to say that they still aren't accepting orders. Must've freaked out when they got my order and weren't expecting it. Now just gotta wait and see if they cancel my order or if it actually goes through...

For now I made a wish list. I am still waiting until January 5th for the Experimental Farm Network to reopen as well. So not in a hurry, might order from both on the same day.

I asked for my EFN stuff for Christmas, so luckily received it already. It was literally right before they shut things down for maintenance. Granted, a lot of stuff was out of stock already. I'm excited to see if the other stuff I want will be available again and what new stuff might show up. January 5th can't get here soon enough.

EFN's Facebook says "over 100 new items" so that sounds promising. Suppose they had more time to collect seed and everything this year.

Thank you guys....I've been wondering when they both would come back to us!

I'm a little bummed out though....Adaptive seems to have taken away their Crapaudine beets for 2021 like Baker Creek did.  I have managed to find some from other sellers but wanted to get them from more sources as I hear this variety varies.  Fingers crossed that Adaptive adds them back.

Edit:  Opps, I was thinking of Uprising....they also aren't taking orders yet but said they'd start again in December....still one day left :)

I have Craupadines from BC in the garden at the moment. They certainly didn't do well with us not having irrigation this year and with the marginal soil/fertility (and being eaten to the ground by deer.) I'm kinda bummed about the performance, but I'm hoping I can save seeds from what's left in the garden and give them another go with better conditions. I might hold back some "pure" seed just in case it ever disappears from catalogs, but I'm mostly excited about using such old genetics as a springboard for a beet landrace. At the very least I'm growing a different variety this year while I wait to harvest my craupadine seeds. They seem to overwinter fine, so maybe I'll be able to use my saved seed for a fall/winter crop.

Count me in as eagerly awaiting the reopening! Shipping to Canada is a bit steep, but you can't beat some of their interesting varieties. I'm happy to support them especially after this crazy year.

Anyone else have new-to-you varieties picked out that you can't wait to try? I've never had success with outdoor basil here, so I'm eager to try Italian Mountain Sweet. Excited to try Bear Necessities kale as well.

Just placed my order after stalking the website all day! It is my final seed order for 2021!

I was going through bookmarked seed pages, I went back to Amishlandseeds which closed last year. Turns out they reopened. I'm not seeing beans, ground cherries etc - but I am seeing two melons or so, some tomatoes pepper. Didn't want to make a huge post about it, so figured I would put it here.
