I hve had good luck with them.

Not last year, mind you. Last year all I grew was VOLES. Damn varmints! But the summer before I grew ONE "Purple Cherokee" tomato plant that about ran me out of my garden. I have not tried to grow corn yet, plan to try the "Painted Mt" stuff this year. And while I know the fungus is a drag... at least have this knowledge so if times are bad enough, your crop is not wasted:

Who knows, it might be delicious, I have not had the nerve to try it.
Do you have a good reference book? Their are some tricks to improving germination rate that are species specific - some will do much better with a pre-soak. Lastly, if you can find other local seed savers, their crops will be proven for your zone and soil and such. Sorry you had bad luck, hope this year is better!

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.
