heres a few that i picked up

detriot dark red beets 1.2 grams
broccoli calabrese green sprouting 400 mg
sunflower giant gray stripe 2 g=about 12 seeds
squash early prolific straightneck 1 g
carrot nantes coreless 300 mg
squash zucchini black beauty 1 g=about 10 seeds

i realize these are fairly small seed packs ,,they are priced on pack at 59 cents
but the advantage is for smaller gardeners or as a stock pile ,,,i grew some seed from this company last year and they grew good,,,had high germination rates ,,most all of them grew,,,for a small garden even if only half grew i think 5 squash plants would be plenty,,,im growing over 25k square feet this year,,,not realy enough for my needs but i can always get 3 or 4 packs and for 20 cents have a huge squash patch,,,beside they are here and now at a fair price

Too bad I don't have one of those around here :-(

I stopped at my Wal-mart today and they had their seeds out. I saw them the other day putting out the racks, but I didn't have time to wait and see (they had only just begun, and with the # of boxes they had there, they looked like they'd be a while). So I stopped today to take a look.

I was pleasantly surprised they had the 20 seeds out. The last two years they had out the normal, full price packs first, and then a month or so later they'd put out the cheap ones - I assumed so that the crazy people like me who can't wait would buy the $$ ones first.

They really aren't much cheaper than buying the full priced seeds if you compare the weights. But it's nice to get some packs of things you've never tried before.

I know exactly what you mean! I won't tell you how many seed orders I've placed in the past two years... but if you saw me at Wal-mart today looking at seeds you'd never have known I have tons of them at home!

Thanks for the post. It reminded me to check locally at our Wally world. Not as good of a deal, but loaded up on 20cent packs just placed on the shelf.
