The Seed Savers Yearbook arrived just after our last post, and it's pretty impressive. Basically it's a phone book of every member of the organization who grows unique varieties of seeds and offers to trade or sell them with other members. Some of these folks use the yearbook to advertise their nuttiness, but there are a lot of fascinating people and seeds in there, too, like the guy in Belarus who scours the country for plants that are at risk for extinction after years of war in the region. All in all a good read, even if we don't order many seeds from there.
