August 2016 Victory Seeds® Newsletter - August Garden Almanac, Dwarf Tomato Project Help Request, Promotional Offers


Hello Gardening Friends,

Two Victory Seed Co. newsletters in two months! A new record for me. This one will be short and sweet.

Things are busy on the farm. The days are quickly getting shorter and cooler, the leaves are beginning to fall, and the 2016 seed harvest is well under way.

One of the projects that I am working on is adding more interesting and useful content to the Victory Seed Company website. Look for more growing information, tips for knowing when to harvest, seed saving tips, and more.

I am also working on adding even more photos of each variety and as time permits, sharing variety histories based on my research. Here is an example from yesterday - 'Red Corn Poppy'.

In money saving news, we have a couple of offers with this newsletter. First, the discount offer from last month, detailed below, has been extended through the Labor Day weekend. It is not just for seeds but will be applied to your whole purchase whether you order seeds, hard goods or books.

Additionally, we have worked out an exciting offer with Fisher Blacksmithing. If you have been thinking about picking up some of these beautifully crafted garden hand tools for yourself or as gifts, this is a limited time offer, and the first time we have been able to do this, so don't sit on the fence too long! See below for details and restrictions.

What can you do in the garden in August?  Check out a more detailed list on our August Victory Gardening Almanac page.

I hope that your harvest is bountiful and thank you again for your support! Until next time,

New Product Announcement

EarPeace HD Hearing Protection Earplugs were designed to protect musicians and their fans, but as a versatile and robust, universal fit hearing protection device, it can also be an important part of your everyday carry (EDC) gear.

In pocket or purse, EarPeace HD is a smart choice to have on hand when the unexpected need for hearing protection arises. There are many noise sources occurring in our everyday lives, especially farm and garden life, that are of comparable sound levels to concerts.

This is why our family carries these and we use them here at the Victory Seed Co. and are making them available to our gardening friends.

Turns down the volume in loud environments without distorting the sound.
Includes everything seen here. Click image for more information.

Dwarf Tomato Project Request for Help - As you probably are aware, the big news in tomatoes this year has been all of the interesting and diverse types of dwarf tomato varieties we have available. Most of these have been the work of the Dwarf Tomato project. [ You can read all about the project and see the varieties by clicking here. ]

The co-founder of the project, my friend Craig LeHoullier, is asking any, and all of us, who have grown out dwarf varieties for our feedback. You can help out by taking a couple of minutes to take the survey by clicking here.

Last Month's Promotional Opportunity Extended

It does not take a rocket scientist to figure out that raising seeds by hand is an expensive proposition. It requires a motivated, engaged, skilled labor force. We work hard at providing year-round work for our trained staff and are happy that we have experienced very little turn-over throughout the years. As a matter of fact, the crew that raises seed is the same crew that fills your orders every year!

As you may already know, we also work very hard at controlling our overhead, keeping our margins tight, and our prices low. But since all of the seed "production" work happens during our "lean sales season" of summer and fall, we are hoping that holding a "sale" will stimulate some orders. :)

What this means for you is a rare discount opportunity with very few restrictions.

Do you need seeds for your fall or winter garden? Are you planning on sowing cover crops? Looking for other things like tools, soil testers or books? Want to get an early start on your holiday shopping? Everything on the site is being offered at a 10% discount!

Enter summer10off to earn 10% off of your next order.  For instructions on how to use the coupon code, click here.

This offer is limited to stock on hand, not available for purchasing gift certificates, expires at midnight PST on September 5, 2016 and cannot be combined with any other discounts or offers. One coupon code per order.

Please help us generate support and please DO forward this email offer to all of your gardening friends and family. Your word-of-mouth recommendations help promote our seed variety preservation work and is our primary form of advertising. Thank you!


We need your support to do this variety preservation work!  There is no getting around it. Your purchases are a vital part in the seed variety preservation work that we do. We are not independently wealthy, have no rich benefactors, no corporate connections, and no side jobs generating an income stream. And this is all by choice! We are 100% dedicated to our mission and sales are what keep these seeds available to gardeners.

I know that when it comes to seeds, there are nearly an unlimited number of suppliers out there from whom you can choose.  I would just ask you to do some quick research to try and find out where they get their seeds, are they really doing anything socially responsible or are they simply selling seeds because they don't sell something else?  Is their address in a city or on an actual farm?

If you read our mission statement, you know find that we are not like most seed "companies" that sell repackaged seeds that they purchase from the mainstream seed industry simply to make money.  We are a farm-based, family owned, independent, preservation organization that works to keep rare and threatened varieties available to home gardeners like you.

All of the seeds that we offer are open-pollinated, untreated, heritage, public domain or open-source* and as an early signer of the Safe Seed Pledge, we will never knowingly offer genetically-engineered, GMO seeds.

We actually do farm and raise seed and what we purchase, we do so from other privately owned seed farmers.  We are a very different from other seed companies in this way, hope that you will choose us as your garden seed source, and are thankful for your continued support.

Even if you don't need any more seeds, there are no cost ways that
you can continue to help throughout the year!

Although your orders are what keep the bills paid and directly support our seed variety preservation work, there are other ways that you can help us continue to increase the number of plant varieties we are protecting and grow the number of charitable organizations we can help to support!

For example, if we are missing a picture of a variety that you grew using Victory Seeds®, you can make the site more useful to everyone by sharing pictures, your experiences and writing a review.  Reviewing a variety is simple.  Just revisit the variety's product page and look for the following link [ Review this item].

For more ideas on ways to help that not only don't cost you money but may even earn you store credit in the form of Victory Points™, visit our support opportunity page at  www.vintageveggies.com/support.html.  We really do appreciate you taking the time to do this and please, keep in mind that word-of-mouth recommendations are our primary source of advertising.
