Oh, this is awesome. Sales of seeds at Burpee have actually doubled, and Seed Savers Exchange has sold out of seed potatoes, shipped double the usual number of tomato and pepper starts, and surpassed last year’s seed sales in the first quarter.
So here’s what I wonder about: Does anything look different at your garden center? Because I’m not seeing much of a difference. If vegetable gardening really is taking off, wouldn’t you think garden centers would rush to re-arrange their displays and put everything you need to plant a vegetable garden front and center?
