Seeds

Basswood is traveling across Mexico and Guatemala this winter looking for landrace garden seeds that he can send back here to GardenSeeds.  When he comes home next spring he hopes to grow some of the seeds he finds in our landrace gardens.  He wants to start harvesting and selling different varieties of landrace seeds.  Some of the seed photos below are from seeds he has ordered online from the heirloom and landrace seed companies we have listed on our site.  The other photos are of seeds he  found at village markets on his trip.   For more photo pages click the links below.
