Website: HumanLight!If you have any specific questions about starting seeds (or anything else) you can contact me through the website or Direct Message me on the Fediverse (or on Twitter or Instagram if you must)I misspoke about Perlite and Vermiculite. Perlite is a naturally expanded volcanic gas, Vermiculite is a mineral compound that can be heated to expand (incidentally the name comes from the heated products tendency to expand into worm like strands.)Also to clarify, when I said “There aren’t many genetically modified organisms in food production right now.” I meant to say varieties, significant portions of our sugar beet and field corn populations are GMO, as is most alfalfa grown as a feed. But those are only a very small handful of varieties that aren’t trivial for you to get. Update: I am no longer comfortable recommending Baker Creek Seeds as I was unaware of their relationship with Cliven Bundy. There were already some red flags for me and this was one too many. I apologize if anyone made a purchase based on listening to this episode.Seed LinksNative Seed Search  - Native American Seed RequestSeed Savers Exchange - Donation Program - JoinSan Diego Seed CompanyJohnny’s Selected SeedsNational Plant Germplasm SystemResourcesFrost Dates in California from UC Davis Frost Dates from the Old Farmers Almanac The Dwarf Tomato Project - Tomato Talk - Micro-Dwarf Tomato ProjectA Tiny Green Cell  - Sebastians EtsyTea Jay’s Garden 1.0Craig LeHoullier and Patrina Small, The Tomato Episode, Introduction, Dwarfs, and Epic TomatoesInterview with Sebastian Cocioba of New York Botanics LLC Support the show
