Mother Earth News just made finding seeds easier

You know how it is when you try to Google the name of a fabulous heirloom tomato or rare perennial you want so you can find the seeds or plants, only to find out there's some band, anime character, or race horse -- or all three -- with that name? Only after much sifting through the search results can you find the plant you're interested in, and even then most of the pages are information about the plant, not seed sources. Frustration!

Mother Earth News sent me a note to tell me of a solution to that problem. Check out their Google-powered Seed and Plant Finder. They've worked some coding magic into the Google search box to make it turn up seed sources. Give it a try and see what you come up with.
