Ann, Margaret, Seana,
We have fresh seed (packed for 2000) in Missouri, too.

Margaret, why assume the employees were lying?  Maybe the people at the
store who take care of the seed order arranged for the seed to be delivered
in Feb., and it won't come any sooner for that reason. Maybe Ann's favorite
nursery orders from a different company, with ship dates that aren't the
same as other companies.  Whatever, there are  several possibilities to
consider before accusing people of lying.

In hindsight, if Ann wants to  plant peas next year, maybe she should mail
order the seed ahead of time, just to be sure.
