Thank you for visiting Little House in the Suburbs. If you like what you see, please SUBSCRIBE.

If you’d like to save a little money on seeds for next spring, now’s the time a lot of seed companies are slashing prices.

Many seeds save very well for years, but only if you do it the right way. Here are some good seed-storing tips from Rodale.

And here are some of the seed sales that have popped up on my radar this week:

Sustainable Seed Company is having HALF OFF ALL SEED PACKETS. Enter code SUMMER0816 at checkout.

05411-PK-P1Park Seed has several great organic seed choices, including their Simply Salad Garden mix that looks very pretty and a rainbow of radishes, both of which would work in the fall garden. Plus, shop their 20 seed packets for $20 sale for up to 65% off.

2536GPJohnny Seeds are also on sale, up to 75% off. This cute Ridgeline romaine lettuce is only $1 for a packet of organic pelleted seed.

prod099470Burpee has some items in their sale shop, including this gorgeous mustard, one of my favorites for fresh salads, particularly because most pests seem to ignore it for most of the year, and it shrugs off frost.

Also in the Burpee sale shop, this salt and pepper set is pretty adorable. I see it in a gift basket with a collection of heirloom seeds and this handprinted flour sack towel.

I’m off to sow some more kale.

What a great reminder. With Monsanto destroying our seeds, everyone should get in the habit of saving some seeds. Nice list of places to buy seeds by the way. Very convenient for us.

CV–Yes, you can find lists of all the seed companies owned by Monsanto or participating in the sale of Monsanto seeds, and those who aren’t, here: http://12160.info/profiles/blogs/a-list-of-some-seed-companies-owned-by-monsanto-or-sell-monsanto All those linked to above are on the clean list. I’ve bought from some of the seed companies who use some Monsanto-associated seeds, and I don’t believe stocking a couple of these varieties is the worst thing a seed company can do, but in future, with this awareness, I’ll try to avoid them.
