Making My List

January 10th, 2013

It’s that time of the year to start ordering my seeds. Every year, I go through my seed stash and figure out what I need for the upcoming season. Since I start all my onions from seed, I do this in early January. Each year, I choose a different company to order from, I like trying seeds from different places. This year, I purchased a seed share from High Mowing Seeds in December (you get 10% off by doing it this way). Now it’s time to sit down and figure out what I need for the upcoming gardening season.
Ordering Seeds
I have a lot more room than I have had in the past, but I’m not 100% positive on how much. Cover crops will be used in any areas that aren’t filled with veggies. There are a few new vegetables I’m excited about trying, celeriac is the one I’m most eager to grow. There’s something so great about this activity, so much hope and promise.

When do you typically order your seeds for the gardening season?

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 Random.org 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?
