This is the time of year that gardeners get the itch to dig in the dirt. This mild winter is really fooling us into thinking Spring is just around the corner. Today is overcast and blustery like March normally is in Arkansas. Even though I'd love to plant something, I'll just be satisfied with thumbing through my seed catalogs. One of the most unique catalogs I receive is Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. Located in South Central Missouri near Mansfield, Baker Creek is not your ordinary type of farming business. The Gettle family started the company in 1997 and devoted themselves to preservation of old-time heirloom varieties that have practically disappeared. The unusual seeds are gathered from around the world. The Baker Seed Store is part of a dream that the Gettle's have brought to fruition.
This video shows some great pictures of the fruits and vegetables in the catalog... if you are a gardener, it will make your heart beat a little faster when you watch it!
