Heirloom! yes, definetly! I was reading the other day about how the Hybrid variety's are lacking nutritional value. The nutrition has been bred right out of them in favor of bigger veggies or disease and pest resistant qualities. They actually inject seeds with pesticides when developing the hybrids, to make them disease resistant! I can't but wonder what kind of health consequenses that could cause....so if that sort of thing bothers you....go with the heirloom.
baker creek Heirloom seeds is a great place to buy from. www.rareseeds.com

We get ours using coupons- so who ever send us a catalog with coupon- we get a lot of Gurney's. We order enough to use the coupon and then wait for the next one. We always make sure to buy non-hybrid seeds so we can save our own seeds instead of buying new ones every year.

Under normal circumstances I'd say I told you so. But, as I have told so with such vehemence and frequency already the phrase has lost all meaning. Therefore, I will be replacing it with the phrase, I have informed you thusly.
