The stunningly beautiful photographs in Baker Creek's "The Whole Seed Catalog" are intermingled with articles about saving seeds, canning garden-fresh produce and more. This glossy 365 page book is a minor investment, however, ringing in at $7.95. Worth it? Judging by the way our editors have been jostling to see our copy, we say "yes!" Baker Creek also offers a free, 212 page catalog entitled "Good Seeds" that's only slightly less impressive. Learn more at www.RareSeeds.com.
