This is my 200th post! I can't believe I've already written 200 posts on this blog. I guess what I quickly learned about writing about our first garden is that when you write about something you're excited about and passionate about, it's easy to reach 200. So I decided for this post to PAY IT FORWARD. Throughout these 8 months of blogging, I've been reading all of your blogs too and have learned A LOT about not just gardening, but also about composting, canning, saving seeds and extending the harvest. And many of you have been generous with not only your gardening advice and extensive knowledge of homesteading, but also so incredibly generous with sharing seeds! So I decided for my 200th post, I would like to give away some seeds in effort to pay it forward. Many of you sent me seeds without expecting anything in return. I think that is so amazing! Gardeners are so generous with their time, advice, and their seeds!
So here are the seeds I've been collecting that I would love to share. The infamous Habaneros, I have been collecting these every time I use a pepper. Here's the disclaimer about these seeds, we received this plant from a friend, so I don't know if this is a hybrid. But if you are willing to try an experiment and grow these seeds, I'd be happy to send you some, just email me your address by using the contact form here.
Long Island Cheese squash seeds. The squash was from the family farm, so I can vouch for it's deliciousness, check it out here. However, I don't know if the seeds will germinate into a Long Island Cheese squash, since these plants are planted next to other kinds squash. Farmer father-in-law says that there's a chance they can cross pollinate so if you want to experiment with these seeds, let me know.
contact form above. I have the following:
1. Chinese Mustard Greens
