The rich history of Connecticut seed companies

They look so innocent and inviting, those little seed packets on retail counters in January, February, and March. Little did I realize what a complex history Connecticut seed companies have had until I began the research for “Connecticut’s long, rich history of providing seed for growers” at Zip06/The Day.

This article was a lot of fun to write–and beyond what’s contained in the article, there are more fun facts. For example, Comstock Ferre in Wethersfield is believed to be the first to put color illustrations on seed packets, which they called “papers” in the early days.
