Gardening 202- a seed giveaway!

The calendar may say it's the first day of Spring, but here in Indiana it is still winter. The sun was shining earlier, but the temperature was only about 30 degrees and the wind was fierce.

So, to in an effort to imspire you to think about Spring, we're hosting a little seed giveaway!

For the past few years, our 4-H club has had a seed sale fundraiser to help pay for trophies and plaques for the county fair. When the order went in this time, I added a few extra packets to MY order, so I could share them with one of you! I tried to pick easy to grow varieties, so even if you're a novice gardener, you should have good results.

The seed giveaway consists of one packet each of:
Autumn Beauty Sunflower Mix
Buttercrunch Bibb Lettuce
Masai Bush Haricot Vert (a bush-style green been)

If you would like to know more about these varieties, you can click over to my earlier post about getting ready to garden in http://home-sweet-life.blogspot.com/2013/01/gardening-101-where-do-i-start.html then click on the link near the bottom about FEDCO seeds.

So, get ready, get set, enter to win some seeds for YOUR hopeful garden!

Be sure to tell your friends! The giveaway will end at 11:00 p.m. EST on Saturday, March 30th!

  5. We've never gardened here - we have a tiny backyard. But I'm excited to try this year . . . growing tomatoes, lettuce, or any other produce we can enjoy!

  6. I hope my peppers actually grow this year - they struggled last year.

  7. Since we are planning to move in June, I want to keep it simple this year with basic salad greens, peppers, herbs and just a few extras. I love sunflowers.
