A woman named Linda, who is part of the Hometown Seeds online company, offered to host a giveaway on my website. The prize? A Variety Seed Pack. It's valued at 19.80 (not counting shipping), but really, isn't it worth way more, if you take into account the quantity and variety of flowers and vegetables and fruit you'll end up with?
Here's a look at what you'd get:
It's funny, Bill and I were both thinking it would be nice to have cilantro that wouldn't go to seed so quickly. I mean, we're happy to have the coriander seeds, but we'd like the cilantro leaves to stick around a bit further into the season.
And look at the carrots! Purple Haze? I have a daughter who would be eating these all summer long.
Anyway, first thing I did after receiving the email was to check out their website.
What I liked the best is that they do not use (knowingly) any genetically engineered seeds. You can read their GMO statement to that effect right here. That alone was enough to make me want to start ordering new seeds from them for next year immediately.
Anyway, go check out their colorful website. And just try to resist....
But wait - before you go there, enter the giveaway. Get a jump on next year's gardens!
Here's what you do.
In the comments section of this post, just let me know if you have a garden (a pot of basil on the kitchen window counts, in my book), and what you grow.
If you want to enter more than once, link to this post on your own blog, or on facebook, or on twitter, and then come back here for each link and let me know about it. Include the link to your link in your comment. (If that's confusing, I apologize - I'm wiped out today.)
I'll let the contest run through the weekend, ending at midnight, eastern standard time, on Sunday night. I'll pick the winner on Monday and announce that person in a separate post here, so don't forget to check back! If you are the winner, email me - jayne (at) barefootkitchenwitch (dot) com - as soon as possible with your address and I'll forward that to Hometown Seeds right away.
