We look for a lot of specific varieties of seed, mostly older varieties suited to our area. We also experiment a lot with other varieties, so we wind up ordering seeds from several catalogs every year. There's a few we won't deal with ever again, a few I won't spend a lot at, and quite a few that I like a lot.

Our most favorite include (in no particular order):

Gurney's (although we've started having some problems in the last 2 years)
Seed Saver's Exchange (especially member-to-member)
Seeds of Change
Vermont Bean Seed Company

I love the Burpee's catalog, but find I can almost always do lots better price-wise elsewhere so we rarely order from them.

POLITICAL: Got a really really unusual catalog this year from a company called "Revolution Seeds." I wouldn't buy anything from them, but their catalog is good for a laugh...very politically-charged oddball stuff akin to some of the worst of what I see occasionally here on this forum (not naming names, but let's say representatives of a "minority opinion" on this site.). Might be worth ordering a catalog just for the laugh value!

Anyway, that's what we do. Can't wait to start digging in the dirt!!
