This little viola pod was just about to burst from the couple days of warm weather we had. Luckily I captured it in a glass bottle I keep for seeds. This will dry out for a bit, then be planted in the early Summer in the pots on my deck.

They are a non-profit dedicated to the preservation of heirloom seed. I buy most my flower seeds here and last year’s cover crops seed for my farm. They come in excellent quality and fairly fast shipping.
Another fabulous place to buy organic heirloom (sometimes, sometimes not heirloom) seed is Seeds of Change. I usually buy my asparagus and strawberry crowns and other root crops here. They come in great condition and have some nice organic varieties to choose from.
And if all else fails – there’s always pillaging from your neighbors or even Craigslist.org
