Summer 2013 Newsletter, NEW Victory Points™ Reward Program, Gardener's Almanac, Promotional Offer


Hello Friends,

Summer is finally here and you know what that means?  It is now time to plan and start getting our fall and winter gardens planted!

This can be a bit confusing to a new gardener.  After all, don't you plant a summer garden in the summer?  Well, no.  You did that back in the spring.  The way to look at it is that your garden is labeled by the season in which you harvest.  So you are now likely enjoying the fruits of your springtime work from your summer garden.

Click Here for the rest of this story on our blog.


Planning and Planting A Fall Garden - There is still plenty of time to sow a second planting of many of the shorter season vegetables.  It is also the time to start planting all of those things that actually benefit and thrive in the cooler, wetter weather of fall.

To give folks a starting point, we have been working on improving our educational resource site (WebGrower.com) and have created some late season gardening resources:

Garden WatchDog Update

We are holding the number 12 position for overall best mail order gardening company out of the  7,598 rated!

This is so exciting. With your positive feedback, perhaps we can continue to inch closer to the number one slot!

Thank you for taking the time to support our seed variety preservation work in this simple but important way!

Other News - Here is a quick listing of what has been going on around the farm and at Victory Seed Company since the last newsletter:

  • We exhibited at two events this spring - a local annual garden fair and for the second year, at Mother Earth News' Spring Fair in Puyallup, Washington.  It was nice to get a chance to visit with folks and make new friends.

  • After a rough spring (weatherwise), things are growing well, support structures (posts, trellises, cages, etc.) are in place and we are wrapping up our drip system installation for the season.

  • As usual and as a core of our mission work, several interesting family heirlooms are being grown out.  Watch the web site for announcements.

In Website News . . .

  • I am in the process of cleaning up and splitting resources between three web "properties" that we have.  VictorySeeds.com will remain our storefront and our primary on-line company presence.  It is hosted at a credit card industry PCI-compliant facility, employs various security features and accuracy is maintained with near real-time inventory management. And in time for the Fall gardening season, I did create a new Fall Garden Seed Category.

  • VintageVeggies.com is our "informational" website.  It is like a big, in-depth "About Us" page.  This is where we have information about the company, host our blog, store our news archive, etc.

  • SaveSeeds.org is a pet project of mine that I don't get a lot of time to work on but one that I feel is very important.  This is a direct offshoot of the research work that we do as part of our seed variety preservation work.  Here you will find "The Seedsman Hall of Fame," various seed company histories, and the online version of the "Victory Horticultural Library."

  • Our newest gardening resource, and one that I am excited about, is called WebGrower.com.  There is an interesting back story behind this domain name.  Back in the old days (the mid-1990s) when I was starting the Victory Seed Company, like many small farmers, farm income was not paying the bills.  I worked "off-farm" at a career as an IT professional.  It seems like a lifetime ago!  WebGrower.com was the internet presence for the consulting company I operated.  Closed for over a decade now, I have finally put the URL to good use.  It is now our "educational" website. The most significant resource there right now is the Regional U.S. Gardening Links section.


For all of you who are just getting to know us, and as a reminder to our longtime supporters, if you are interested in keeping closer tabs on what is going on around here at the Victory Seed Company, check out our Facebook page, Twitter, YouTube channel, Pinterest board, and our blog. Please join in the conversations. More information about these opportunities is located on our web site and at the end of this newsletter.

Until next time, gardening success to you,
