"In a garden, all the flowers are different colors....
but they live happily together side by side"
Ringing any bells? Think Good Housekeeping magazine circa 1979....
Now I'm going to show you my seed order which might help you with a few clues. (I never got around to requesting catalogs from all those who took the Safe Seed Pledge like I intended. I didn't do all the research I promised myself I would. I ended up going with my two old favorites: Baker Creek and John Scheepers. Then I got the Abundant Life catalog, read up on their mission, and decided to spread the love.)
