So in my last post, I wrote about how I have been getting a deluge of seed catalogs in my mailbox and I swore to myself that I would not buy any new seeds for the 2012 season. That was the goal at least, until I received a customer appreciation email from Urban Farmer who sent me a $10 gift certificate to use on any of their products on their website. Who can turn down a free $10 and especially from a seed company that I love? I wrote about Urban Farmer's recycling efforts before here, and once sponsored a seed giveaway of their herb seeds here. Urban Farmer also has a safe seed pledge that guarantees that they do not sell any GMO seeds. You can read the seed pledge here on their site. They offer many seeds that are organic and many are also heirlooms. They are serious about their recycling efforts, in fact all of their seed packets are made from recycled magazines. Check out the seeds that I chose, I kinda love that Brooke Shields is on the cover of one of my seed packets. LOL. Maybe my plants will grow as pretty as she is!
So I ordered the following seeds, Lemon Grass, Oregano, Cherokee Purple Tomato, Parsley, Cherry Belle Radish and Sweet Pickle Peppers. I am really excited about the sweet pickle peppers, which is a heirloom plant. They grow short so I can probably grow these in pots! So cool! I hope to pickle these too! Since they gave me $10 as an appreciation for being a good customer, I only had to spend $2.60 plus $3.95 for shipping. I love this seed company for what they stand for and also love a good bargain!
