I was fortunate enough to be able to work with Annie's Heirloom Seeds for this year's garden! I was looking for heirloom seeds in particular because I have heard so much recently about how so many of these seeds have been contaminated by large corporations more interested in money than in nutrition.
When I found Annie's I knew that I wanted to work with them. They are a family owned and operated company who started saving seeds to honor the traditions of their grand parents. A small company trying to make what difference they can, I like working with companies like this. If you'd like to know more about Annie's please visit their About Us page. You can also follow Annie's Musings which is filled with tips about their seeds, recipes, and family happenings.
Annie's Sunflower Collection, Annie's Southern Tomato Collection, Summer Squash Mix, Dorata di Parma Onion, Boothby's Blonde Cucumber, Contender Bush Beans, Clemson Spineless Okra, Sugar Baby Watermelon, and Homemade Pickles Cucumber.
I have special plans for every one of these in my garden this year. I'm particularly excited to make a Sunflower House for my girls to play in. The Southern Tomato Collection is another that I can't wait to try. I live in Tennessee and it gets really hot and humid, the seeds in this collection have been bred to resist cracking and perform well in these conditions.
All of Annie's seeds are Heirloom only, no hybrids, and no GMO's.
You can't beat their prices either. If you're a beginning gardener you should check out their Beginner's Garden Collection, its only $8.80. They also have collections for the most advanced homesteader (includes vegetables AND their flower companions!) and everything in between.
If you're planning on gardening this year, I strongly encourage you to go see what Annie's has to offer. And please follow my 2013 Gardening Journal to see my adventures with Annie's Seeds.
You can also enter to win a $25 Gift Certificate to Annie's Seeds during the Spring into Sustainability Hop which will run from March 20, 2013 until March 31, 2013.
