I love chick days there and I always have a REALLY hard time leaving without chicks when they have them... it's like they know I'm a sucker for fluffy little peeps... I currently have about 50 in the brooders.
I ordered my heirloom/gmo free seeds this year from baker creek and I have been very happy with them. They ship super fast and the ones I've started indoors already have had excellent germination rates!
I certainly hope you are right about people waking up... I feel awfully lonely sometimes surrounded by the neocons my state is so full of.
