We are from Montana and live now in North East Texas, Bonham. I gardened as a child with my father. Then early in our marriage. Trying to get used to the planting season here in North Texas. We raise grass fed cattle and pasture raised chickens. We are expanding our gardening to herbs and heirloom varieties with an eye toward selling extra.

In Sowega- that's southwest Georgia- about 10 miles from Plains, home of Jimmy Carter. Interested mostly in veggie gardening, seed saving and starting a greenhouse.

Hiya! I live in Jacksonville, FL (that's NE FL, very close to the coast). I am a newbie to heirloom gardening, but am already addicted after finding and ordered from rareseeds.com. As a cook dedicated to the best ingredients I can find, heirloom gardening makes great sense for me, though my yard is TINY! Still, I am having a great time starting my first heirloom veggie garden. Much thanks and respect for what you are acheiving in this world! love it!

I'm in Southeast MO, west of Cape Girardeau. I grew up on a farm and worked in my family's garden as I was growing up. I've had my own garden for 6 or 7 years now. It's fun to plant the seeds and watch them grow over the course of the growing season.

I'm from San Clemente California - originally from Seattle Washington. I love love love heirlooms and like to read my husband the Baker Creek Catalog while we soak at night in the tub - he gets a real kick out of some of the descriptions. My dear husband bought me the largest San Clemente lot he could find (not an easy task mind you out here by the coast) and built me 4 raised beds - 6 X 8 feet. I think I must be the only vegetable gardener in this city, but I love it and you would simply be amazed at how much I can grow in such a little space. Since you can practically reach out and touch your neighbors where I live, my garden is a community space. I share much of the harvest with my friends and neighbors.
