The post you refer to is two years old, and the company that prompted it is no longer on Local Harvest.
Currently, several vendors including our farm offer some heirloom tomato and other seeds (including some quite rare ones) at UNDER $2. That is dirt cheap when you consider the labor-intensiveness of hand-pollinating certain crops like squashes and melons.
It is unseemly to come on this site with dated, inaccurate information and promoting an outside business.
LH Moderator: this post seems to violate the rule against promoting on this forum, and I recommend that it be deleted.
