High Mowing Seed Giveaway

May 24th, 2012

A couple months ago, High Mowing Seeds asked to me to try some of their seeds in my Northeast Ohio garden. Since I love High Mowing and their organic seeds, I said sure. Then of course I asked for a giveaway for my blog.

I opted to have them send me a Heirloom Vegetable Collection which includes: Detroit Dark Red Beet • French Breakfast Radish • Red Russian Kale • Green Arrow Shell Peas • Yellow Crookneck Summer Squash • Rouge d’Hiver Red Romaine Lettuce • Boothby Blonde Cucumber • Ruby Red Chard • Red Cored Chantenay • Brandywine Tomato. I’m especially excited about trying the squash and cucumbers, bot new varieties for my garden.

They have a few other wonderful collections including:

  • A Bee’s Garden Organic Seed Collection
  • Garden Starter Organic Seed Collection
  • Heirloom Vegetable Lover’s Collection
  • Kid’s Garden Organic Seed Collection
  • Kitchen Herbs Collection
  • Easy Salad Greens Organic Seed Collection
  • Summer of Sunflowers Organic Seed Collection
  • Three Sisters Organic Seed Collection

Tell me in the comments which collection you’d like to grow in your garden and you’ll be entered to win that collection. Winner chosen, thanks to TJ from Humble Origins is the winner.

I love that High Mowing has a special Seed CSA in December where you can purchase seed shares at a reduced rate and use them to purchase seeds for the coming growing season. To keep up with what they’re doing, head on over to their Facebook Page.

So which seed collection would like to have for your garden?

    Hmmmm…..choosing just one is difficult! Being that we are all about the bees these days, definitely the Bee’s Garden Collection! Although, the Heirloom Vegetable Lover’s sounds good too!

    Heirloom seed collection! I am always trying out the heirloom varieties at the Farmer’s Market. They have the best choices. Would love to grow some of my own. The tomatoes are always my favorite, the uglier the better in most cases!

    I checked out their website and love how they break down the tomato sizes for ordering. I also like the seed CSA idea.

    Thanks for the giveaway offer and the heirloom collection looks great!

    Hmmm . . . to be selfish and choose the Heirloom Vegetable Lovers for me? Or a nice mom and choose the Kids Garden Collection?

    Well, that’s easy. My son doesn’t care at all what seeds he’s sticking in the ground as long as he gets to pound the earth down on top of them afterward. So. Heirloom Vegetable Lovers for me, then, and he can keep playing with my old seeds. No sense wasting fancy seeds on a two year old.

    The 3 Sister’s Collection would be great for the garden outside my classroom. I teach science to 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders and I’ve been considering a 3 Sister’s bed to make a connection between my curriculum and the kids’ social studies units.

    I didn’t know they had a seed CSA. I had some tomato plants given to me grown from High Mowing Seeds and they are doing great! I think I’d like to grow the Summer of Sunflowers Collection- that sounds beautiful!

  32. Janet Anderson on May 24, 2012 at 9:15 am

    I would go for the Bee Lovers Garden – we need to support wild and domestic bees!!! I am hoping to create a native plant garden in my front yard to attract all manner of bugs and birds and beasties. It is a little garden so just a few of each. :-)

  33. Lynda on May 24, 2012 at 9:19 am

    I’m pretty sure my pick would be A Bee’s Garden Organic Collection…but if I think about it too long I’ll change my mind again and again!! But, I have a few hives of bees and I plant flowers for them for every season…so the collection would be terrific!

  34. BeccaOH on May 24, 2012 at 9:24 am

    Hmm, I haven’t heard of that company before. I thought I was getting bees this year, so the Bee Garden would have been good, but I seemed to have missed the swarming time from my friend’s hives. Guess I’d go with the Heirloom Vegetables.

    I think I’d love the Heirloom Veggies as well, though the Garden Starter looks like a nice option, too. Some of those crops just won’t grow over the summer here in Florida, so right now I’m building new beds and preparing for my main growing season which will be Fall and over winter!
