Good afternoon everyone, I had some issues with vigor among legumes, cucurbits, and all non tillage brassicas in my first year back to Eden mulch garden. Anyone have "guaranteed to start" seeds they'd be willing to part with for my zone? Perennial would be better if possible, and I'm basically looking for any non staple crops (purple and orange sweet potatoes are doing great).

I want to try grex or swarm results from other permies to have the most diverse starting point for possible success. If there are any public seed sources outside of Exper farm network y'all recommend, I'll also give those a shot.

Thanks! Adam

I would suggest trying JL Hudson.

http://www.jlhudsonseeds.net/

https://permies.com/wiki/76424/Hudson-Seedsman-California-USA

Hudson identifies itself as a "public access seed bank...established in 1911..."  Their catalog, which includes all kinds of seeds (not just vegetables) is about 85 pages of seeds (15 pages of veggie seeds) with (roughly) an average of 20 varieties per page - 26 varieties of tomato, 32 varieties of pepper, 24 varieties of squash, and many others - all "open pollinated, non F-1 hybrid, non-patented" vegetable seeds, "...many of which have been continuously grown for a century or more..."
