Go Ahead and Try It

We love Fridays - most people do. Perhaps it is because it's the signal of the end of the work week, the start of uninterrupted family time, or a chance to finally get into the garden and get some work done. Whatever the reason, it is here.

We saw our little pea and bean shoots start coming up out of the ground and I started thinking about seeds. Seeds are kind of amazing when you stop and think about it. From a tiny seed, a whole plant is produced - sometimes yielding fruit after fruit full of tiny little seeds to start the process all over. There is something that makes you feel good inside when your little seed becomes a plant.

Now, I know some of you out there are related to us in that you have thought about starting your garden, but just haven't yet. For those of you, we want to offer a little incentive. We have two packs of seeds that will provide you 5 delicious varieties of vegetables that we want to give you. They are both Burpee seed packs. The first one is a four in one pack providing four options in one convenient pack - that way you are not wasting unused seeds. These include: Garden Bean (colorful varieties), Cucumber (bush type), Lettuce (red & green looseleaf), and Squash (Fordhook Zuchini) The second pack is something new - at least to us. It is seed tape. You bake the row, set the tape in place, and cover it up. There is no need to put each seed in individually - all that tedious work is gone. The seed tape is Carrots - Nantes Half Long.

We will send out these seeds to one of our lucky readers.
