    Do you ever get seedlings by mail order? If so, which companies are the best to purchase from?


  3. cjinspirations says:

    Yes I do order seedlings by mail. I have ordered from and also search these on google or similar search engine as I have also ordered from these:
    Brent and Becky’s bulbs, Bluestone perennials, Van Engelin, Inc., Logee Greenhouses, Oakes Daylilies.
    If you want to see what other gardeners across the country feel about certain mail order companies, go to you can check by exact company and see their rating according to what customers evaluations are.

    Do you ever do classes in the Buffalo, Delano area? I am interested in your instant pot class.

    1. Cooking in the Country with Chris says:

      Hi there the closet will be in Dassel Cokato school, I have a class at the middle school, how far are you willing to travel? That class is in March. We could figure out something closer to you if I get enough interest. You can live stream my Hcvn cooking classes online, I believe on Saturdays at 2:30, check out

    2. Cooking in the Country with Chris says:

      I thought I replied to you, but this message came back again.
      I have not gone to that area and more than likely will not, the closest for you is Dassel/Cokato. I usually don’t travel that far for my classes as it is a lot of items to bring and distance, but feel free to go to my facebook page for recipes or email me directly for any questions about using the instant pot and I will be happy to help you out! Don’t forget to check this website for recipes as well.
