Sticker Shock

Yep, thats what I got. Maybe I am just living some where in the past. I know things are not what they used to be but. I am thinking that maybe just getting out of hand a bit.
 Was to order some seed today, just needed a few. Wanted to order a 30 count pack of pimientos de PadrĂ³n Chiles.
$0.12 cents each. OK I can live with thats only $3.60. So I ordered them on line after freight $9.55 total.
Damn, thats $0.32 per seed. The freight killed the deal. I can not pay $5.95 to ship a small packet of 30 seeds. Dang, just put them in an envelope add .45 cent stamp and send. And they are not even a hybrid seed. Gotta keep on looking. Bill

I have too not ordered seeds from companies because of their outlandish shipping charges. Wish I had that variety to share with you but I am not familiar with it. I do have one from Italy called just Padrone
