Re: Time to purchase seeds

Hey Bruce, I moved way down to the southern tip of Illinois 15 years ago and I love it. No lake effect snow here, LOL, only ice storms :( I grow the old tried and true Roma tomato for my canning and sauces and an old Italian heriloom for eating.

Re: Baking your own bread
