Re: Seed Savers Exchange

I've ordered from SSE for a number of years, but... last year was probably the last.

First, maybe I'm just getting older and crankier, but the air of smug self-rightousness that oozes from the catalog (and the web site) is getting on my nerves. On the other hand, I'm a New Yorker who's been transplanted to California and perhaps we can attribute my irritation to that.

But, as with gardentotable, I had a batch of seeds that didn't germinate well - bean seeds to boot, which are pretty much bulletproof. OK, so foof happens sometimes, but when I sent them an eMail about it, I got no reply... whatsoever. One would have expected at least some soothing words of sympathy.

Perhaps trivial, but there's plenty of other places to take my custom to.
