Heirloom Veggies Seed Collection & Tobacco, available.

heirloom fruit seedsI have been growing these organic heirloom seeds for years. I live in an area of SC that doesn’t get much rain fall. These plants had been irrigated with a state of the art water filtration system and nourished with organic compost tea and the best quality top soil was hauled in. I am willing to trade for silver or other varieties of seeds that I don’t have in my collection. One large veggie collection available for 6, 8 and 10 troy. The six troy package will have enough seed for a really great big garden start. The 8 & 10 troy will have more herbs a couple grains plus so many seeds you can barter leaving enough seed to plant a couple huge gardens. I recommend adding a few more varieties from other sources. The tobacco packages of 4 varieties are for 1 troy ounce, not as many seeds in the 1 troy as seen here in the 4 troy care package. email me at artnuwa11@yahoo if you are interested and I will send you a still photo and the content and description of each type. Thank you!
