I didn't even have to leave the mountain to do it.
It seems that the seed companies are finally getting into the spirit.
The first order I places was with Thompson and Morgan. Their seeds were 25% off. With the discount they come down to a somewhat reasonable price.
The order consisted of:
Cosmos bipinnatus 'Cosimo Collarette'  $2.99Cosmos bipinnatus 'Double Click Bicolour Pink'  $2.99
Dianthus barbatus 'Kaleidoscope Mixed'  $0.97
Leek Nipper  $2.24
Petunia hybrida 'Sparklers'  $2.47
Runner Bean Tenderstar  $2.99
Yes, those are the sale prices. I'm excited about the leek, it is a baby leek for harvesting at green onion size and the runner bean. The runner bean is a cross between a runner and a regular pole bean. It has red and white flowers wit pods that are more like a regular pole bean.

The 'Cosimo' cosmos is supposed to grow to 24", we'll see if that is true.
