For a while now I have wanted to let you in on my guilty little pleasure. At https://www.averagepersongardening.com/seed_subscriptions.php Mike the Gardner has a seeds of the Month Club. The first week of the month I wonder with giddy anticipation what will be in my mailbox. What challenges for my short season to over come. This is an economical way to supplement varieties, prepping for seed storage, and provide a bounty of healthy food. These are sustainable seeds sourced around the country. A great gift for the gardener or simply to hedge your bets on inflation. Worried about your food supply. Take matters in your hands and build a Victory Garden. A hundred years ago our country could provide thousands of different vegetables and foods. Eating local was supplemented by foods arrived by boat or train, not as the only source. Grains of many types and varieties filled our real bread. Food purity laws, new standards of sanitation, preserving helped to grow our nation. Take a first step into the future. Allow yourself the pleasure to explore the promise of a seed and whatever turns out.
“From novice to experienced, millions of people around the world grow their own vegetables. Some do it for fun as a hobby but many do it as a means to put healthy, safe food on their family’s kitchen table for a lot less than what they would pay in stores. With a monthly Seeds Club subscription you can cut your costs even further to as little as $0.06 per day!” from Mike The Gardner.
Weather it is a green tomato or purple carrot food can be more interesting than the cookie cutter food found at the local Megamart. I am on the hunt for red celery and the variety of nature’s bounty. This review is from my experience not solicited in any way or paid for in any form. Four seed packets a month for two dollars, I certainly feel it is worth it. For my garden and my personal seed library I receive security, and a little wonder.
