Frost Kissed Seed Tin Giveaway

September 6th, 2012

Yesterday, we arrived home and found a package on the doorstep from Peaceful Valley Farm Supply. Of course that made me giddy, as packages of seeds and garden goodies always do! I’m very familiar with this company, because my parents have been ordering from them since I was a little girl. Back in the day, they were one of the few places to find organic gardening supplies.

Inside my package I found a big bag of Soil Builder Cover Crop with an envelope of inoculant. Being a huge fan of various cover crops and the wonderful benefits they provide, I’m really looking forward to trying this out!

I also received a collection of various seeds that I will experiment with planting this fall and winter. Which seeds arrived? ‘Little Finger’ carrots, ‘Flame’ lettuce, ‘Bloomsdale’ spinach, ‘Pink Beauty’ radish, ‘French Breakfast’ radish, ‘Sparkler’ radish, Mesclun mix, Braising greens mix, arugula, ‘Tres Fine’ endive, ‘Freckles’ lettuce, and ‘Black Seeded Simpson’ lettuce.

Along with all of the wonderful cold tolerant vegetables above, I also received the Frost Kissed Spring or Fall Mix Seed Tin. I plan on planting some of these this fall in a low tunnel to see how they do. The remaining seeds will be planted early next spring.

In order to kick start you fall garden, Peaceful Valley is going to be giving away a Frost Kissed Seed Tin to one lucky reader. All you have to do is comment on this post. Winner will be chosen September 12. Winner chosen, thanks to Joy Giles won. She said “Looks like a small Farmers’ Market to be in a tin. Would love to plant test garden with these.”

What’s your favorite fall/winter vegetable?

    Here in Houston beets are fall/winter veg and I love them. Have hard time growing winter squashes here and love them bunches but my all time favorite has to be Lacinto/Dinosaur/Tuscan kale!!! The best tasting and easiest ttocook and eat ever!

    I’ve loved reading this blog – thanks for sharing your knowledge! My fall garden is sprouting nicely. Spinach, peas (although a vole seems to be enjoying them.) Carrots and parsnips.

    I’m really just now getting into planting fall crops and hopefully this winter I’ll be able to get a row cover to extend plants into the winter. As of now, spinach has to be my favorite fall crop.

    Just planted some fall cabbage and broccoli, probably too late, so we’ll see if they make it. I do love fall gardening!

    My favorite is spinach. Because it really has a mind of it’s own. I’ll think the seed has disappeared to.. well, where ever a lot of my seed seems to disappear to… and then months later it will shoot through the ground! It may freeze in the snow and frost, and then just transforms itself with some sunshine. Love it!

    I’ve never done a fall crop before, but since I had to scale down on gardening this summer, I’d love to give it a try.

    Would love some more seeds for our first ever attempt to grow during autumn and winter. Is it “kosher” to say, “Pick me! Pick me!” ;o) Great giveaway; thank you for offering it!

    This is my first year really trying to focus on growing in the fall/winter. I am going to start some lettuces and other greens in the greenhouse really soon.
    The seed tin is adorable!

    My favorite winter crop is probably spinach! Its just so fresh and green when everything else is coming from storage or underground!

    As I have only just recently got my allotment, and have never
    had a garden, I really don’t know that much about what seeds
    do best, or when! BUT, reading your postings have helped, and
    I am looking forward to a bumper spring!
