Hello,
Question for those of you in US of A's.

I would like to find a source for good seeds that I can regrow the seeds from them. I do not like the hybrid seeds.

Any idea where is the best place to get them from?
I have been searching, but have not finalized me decision yet. Would be nice to get some input from people who got more experience than me.
I have read some reviews too; like this one:

You might check with an agricultural college, too. Clemson is awesome with helpful info, soil tests, anything about growing plants. Duke maybe? More of a med school I guess. NC State?

Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds has a wide variety, but they can get a bit pricey: http://rareseeds.com/

Pinetree Garden Seeds has better prices, and they clearly mark which seeds are hybrids and which aren't: https://www.superseeds.com/

I'll second Baker Creek as a good source. They have a wide selection, including some rarities. I also like http://www.mypatriotsupply.com/ for the basics.

I get the majority of my seeds from here:

http://www.seedsavers.org/

"Seed Savers Exchange is a non-profit organization dedicated to saving and sharing heirloom seeds. Since 1975, our members have been passing on our garden heritage by collecting and distributing thousands of samples of rare garden seeds to other gardeners."

Thanks Web4Deb
This is one of the best ones I have seen so far. I think this should do it for me.

Also I found this one site that has few seeds, but according to what I heard from my mother they have the best seeds and they are very helpful. I have placed an order with them and hopefully will post some pictures in near future.

Yesterday, I started building my fish tank sides.

By the way, what is the biggest file size of a picture than can be posted here?
