I give this seed company 9 out of 10 acorns

Prairie Garden Seeds is a zone 2 seed company
Prairie Garden Seeds

"We are enthusiastic gardeners and seed savers with a large collection of seeds which we have been maintaining for about 30 years (the collection started off small and has had many additions throughout the years). Increasingly, a part of our work has been educating people about plants, seeds, local food, gardening and seed saving. As seed savers and preservationists, we encourage others to engage in the work we do in order to empower people to grow food from seed to seed."

These seeds are raised in some of the best soil in Canada, in a very short growing season, very hardy and quality is very high.

Hi Steve, I believe a moderator will be along to add this seed company to the grid.  If you want your acorn score to show up (which I'm sure you do), could you reply to your thread and start it with the following words:

I give this seed company ___ out of 10 acorns

It may work just as well if you "edit" your original post to start with those same words.  That wording at the beginning of a post is what the program needs to find your rating and put it on the grid.

I wanted to order from them back in November, but this was the main deterrent for me:

NOTE that this is not an online Order Form. You will have to print the form, write your order by hand, put it in an old-fashioned envelope with a cheque (made out to RACHELLE TERNIER or JIM TERNIER) for the appropriate amount and mail it to the address in Humboldt.

I don't think myself as a techie really, so I can live with smaller seed companies not always having a shopping cart or even a website. I don't understand though why Prairie Garden Seeds do not accept interac, paypal, or even creditcards, or why they couldn't have an online Order Form(using doc/excel) downloadable on their site. Might contact them and inquire on it, as I'd otherwise like to give them some support.

Now would be the time to go to their facebook page and see the events they will attend over the next month. Make your list now. I got their seeds directly from Rachelle on the Seedy Saturday last year. All of the corn save one seed germinated and that was accounting for mice and pocket gophers so I thought I did pretty well. The variety was new to me so I don't know if it had particular cold vigor but the corn on my plot was the first to mature out a community garden plot of hundreds. So I'd go so far to say it is Sk tested.
Quick! Before anybody notices! Cover it up with this tiny ad:
how do we get more backing of the brk?
