Time flies at Heritage Seed Co.

Posted by Paul Fireman (Creator)

Big news: The website should go live by July. Had many reports of success in growing the Heritage Seeds. Please let us know your stories and send us some pictures.  The growing season is under way and Jen and Greg are selling at Farmers Markets around Pittsburgh.  We are running low on seedling seed packs and we will be printing again soon.  The packs still make me smile.  Greg is exploring creating a Heritage Seed Co. model to replicate in communities around around the country.  The website should help with this and communication as I sometimes forget about Kickstarter.   Thanks for saving.

      I never received any of my backing gifts and I was wondering where I could ask for them. Since I pledged about 100$, I was looking forward to the seeds, but also to the rest of the gifts

      That is all we sent to anybody, in fact we were so worried about not having enough seeds that
      we asked everyone if they were going to plant them because we did not want to waste any.

      We did not have any of the other seed types in volume. Most we are growing and establishing now. Some were are selling as seedlings. No shipping. Some of the seeds may take 5 to 10 years to save if we are lucky. We may fail on saving some. Remember these are all on the Slow Food Ark of Taste of endangered plants.

      We had a bumper first crop of Amish Paste. The seed packs are for saving seeds not for selling
      seeds. Some day I hope we have seeds

      I am sorry we did not explain this well. I have some Fish Peppers I grew in my raised bed garden.

      Unfortunately, we received only 1 packet with seeds which was the amish paste tomato which is growing right now in our raised bed. The other 2 seed packets were empty.
