How to Order Seeds - Video 2 of our Seed Starting Series | Bear Bottom Acres

This is the 2nd video in our seed starting series. We went through the 4 must-do steps before placing a seed order in our last video. In this video, we use what we have learned to make educated seed selections for 2019 and talk about self control when buying seeds.

This was really fun for me. I tried to have reasonable restraint but hey it's my first time ordering seeds and a lot of the things we are going to plant will be in place of buying them at the grocery store so the way I see it we are winding up ahead.

We hope you enjoy watching.
