Happy belated Birthday!!!

Oh yes, I know what some people would do.... its been going on since the 1800s. Even today, I wonder how many of these "Aunt Bee" or "Gramma Walton" heirloom seeds (you get my exageration) are just relabeled varieties from decades ago? As you said before, old seedsmen used to do it all the time in their catalogs.

I antique alot and if I can find an original, full Livingston's Acme seed packet in one these rural antique shops up here and down home in Ohio, I'm gonna need some help growing them out cuz I doubt my usual seed planting method of ProMix and water is going to work. Once in a while I'll run across some old flower seed packets so ya never know.
