Got my first seed catalog (catalogue) a few days ago.

And now for the really exciting one.  I've been tracking the delivery of my Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds catalog. It has cleared Canada customs.

USPS International says, "Your item was processed through a facility in CANADA on November 30, 2016 at 9:16 pm. The item is currently in transit to the destination."

It will soon be in my hands. Very Happy

Just got off the phone with Baker Creek. For those of us who ordered the free catalog, they should be shipping in the next week or so...

Carefully placed on the coffee table?

My seed order should be in the mail box (down the street). I'm curious if the catalog will also be in the box. bounce

My Whole Seed catalogue from Baker Creek arrived last week.  This week I've gotten ones from Seed Savers and High Mowing Seeds.  I promised myself I wouldn't go overboard this year, but I've already placed orders totally over $200 (online) during the past month and that was before I received any catalogues. I just keep finding new (old!) heirlooms I want to give a go.

Thank you for the warm welcome. I'm told that admitting the addiction is half the battle, but all those lovely pictures and their descriptions... I'm just to weak to resist. Very Happy

My Baker Creek seed order arrived today. Black Vernissage tomato was one of the freebies.

Gardengal, I know I spent at least $200 in seeds for 2013 and 2014. My name is Sanderson, and I am a seedalholic.

Question:  If I ordered last year from a given seed company, will they send my one of their catalogs?  Without soliciting a new one?  

Just don't want to end un inundated with catalogs.....

Oh, I'm quite certain that they'll gift you with a new catalog this year!

Even if I don't order from each catalog, they keep sending them, year after year!  I just tossed a collection that had arrived during the last few months.  I think that if one orders from one catalog, that company shares the info with other companies, and then you're inundated.  Forever.

Donna, that is kinda what I thought.  At least that's the way with every other genre of catalogs!

I saw the big one at Sam's the other day. Didn't get it though.

Started going through the free one last night. DH asked me what I was doing. When I told him it was the BC catalog & I was marking & dreaming, he just laughed. It's nice to have a spouse who understands!
