I just bought myself the second edition of Carol's book, Breed Your Own Vegetable Varieties. I have an old,  but still useful copy of the first edition that was gifted to me by Joseph. If anyone wants it it can be gifted on. It still has some interesting notes by Joseph inside.

Sure! I still have it. I would love some seeds. Send me a PM or an email and we can work it out! I like the fact you are just a state over,  so your seeds might do really well for me. Would you be willing to help pay for shipping?

I have shipped off my copy,  but it sounds like there are still others who have copies to share.
