Fall 2013 - This page is posted here as a historical reference.
October 11, 2013 - Happy Harvest! . . . News from the Farm, Close-Out Promotional Offer - See below for more information.

Fall 2013 Newsletter


Hello Friends,

Another summer has come to an end and with it another busy gardening season.  Here on our farm we are wrapping up the 2013 harvest and we will (hopefully) be tilling soil and sowing cover crops this coming week.

If you haven't already done so, there is still time in many locations to get your cover crops planted and your gardens put to bed for the winter.  Cover crops help to prevent winter erosion as well as to maintain and improve your soil's fertility.  You can find seeds by clicking here.

Speaking of harvest, we are very excited about some of the "new" (old) varieties that we will be offering for the 2014 gardening season.  Some are old family heirlooms whose protection and public introduction are at the core of our organization's mission.

Fall Gardens

Many of you planted fall gardens in the later part of the summer.  For some, this was your first time.

Drop us an email and let us know what kinds of things you are enjoying out of your "off season" gardens.

With harvest just now being completed, it will be several weeks before we finish cleaning, testing and knowing what we will have available.  Check the "New for 2014" category on our website on occasion.  We add items there as they are made ready for purchase.  We also tend to announce each item, as they are added to inventory, on our Facebook page as well as our Twitter feed.  I encourage and invite you to "Like Us" and / or "Follow Us."


Other News - Here is a quick listing of what has been going on around the farm and at Victory Seed Company since the last newsletter:

  • As mentioned, the end of a good harvest has been completed.

  • We are working on finishing up the conversion and expansion of an old cattle "loafing barn" into an equipment shed.  Summers on the farm always include some form of new construction or the maintenance of existing structures.

  • As we start the process of preparing the harvested seeds for sale, I will be organizing research notes and documentation and will start writing the history and descriptions used on the product web pages and in the upcoming catalog.

  • At the end of the summer, two of our staff headed back to school full-time - Our daughter-in-law was accepted into a physical therapist program and our friend Patricia (who is also our daughter's mother-in-law) was accepted into a medical assistant program.  We will miss their daily presence here on the farm, are thankful for their many contributions over the years, and wish them the best of success in their new careers!


If you are just getting to know us, and as a reminder to our longtime supporters, you can check out our Facebook page, Twitter, YouTube channel, Pinterest board, and our blog to keep better connected with what we are up to here at the Victory Seed Company.

Until next time, gardening success to you,

Current Promotional Opportunity

2013 Season Close-Out Special . . . At the end of every season we end up with extra inventory that is packaged for the current year.  What we haven't sold by the time that we switch over to the upcoming year, we donate though our year-end gifting program.

In spite of conflicting news to the contrary, times still seem to be tough for most of us.  So we have decided to hold one last special discount offer for the year in the form of a season close-out special.  So while supplies last, take 10% off all seed packets labeled for the 2013 season.

Please be assured that we do not sell "bad" seeds.  We test our seed lots multiple times throughout the year (a task just recently completed) and discard any that do not meet or exceed standards.  Additionally, instructions for how to properly store seeds until next season will be included with your order.

Enter 2013close to earn 10% off of your next order.  For instructions on how to use the coupon code, Click here.  This offer is good while inventory lasts and expires at midnight PST on November 11, 2013.

Please DO forward this email offer to all of your gardening friends and family.  Your word-of-mouth recommendations help promote our seed variety preservation work and is our primary form of advertising. Thank you!


Share Your Experience and Make Our Site Better - Although your orders are what keep our bills paid and directly support our seed variety preservation work, there are other ways that you can help.  For example, if you garden with Victory Seeds®, you can make the site more useful to everyone by sharing pictures, your experiences and writing a review.  Reviewing a variety is simple.  Just revisit the variety's product page and look for the following link [ Review this item]. You can even earn 25 Victory Points for each review that is approved!

For more ideas on ways to help that not only don't cost you money but may even earn you store credit, visit our support opportunity page at www.vintageveggies.com/support.html.  We really do appreciate you taking the time to do this.

By design, PayPal keeps its accounts separate so if you choose to log into your PayPal account to complete your purchase, you will not be logging into your Victory Seed Company account and therefore will not earn Victory Points™.


About Our Work - If you have read our mission statement, you know that we do not exist as an organization to simply sell seeds.  We sell seeds to fund our plant variety preservation work and to keep rare, heirloom and open-pollinated varieties available to home gardeners.  We are a little different from other seed companies in this way.  Thank you for your continued support.
