More mailbox garden goodies
I love the mail in January, when all the seed companies are sending out catalogs and other goodies. This came to me at work yesterday.
It's possible to find Renee's Garden seeds at local retailers. I don't know about the big box stores, but I've purchased them at Bookcliff Gardens. Renee's Gardens has some unique seeds that are difficult to find elsewhere, although they stick the yellow doll watermelon in a mix that includes a pink and an orange variety that I don't want to grow.
The sample pack included in this media kit is for an heirloom stirfry blend that includes mizspoona mustard/mizuna, wild garden kales, majima and great wave wild mustards. I know nothing about these specific types, but judging from the other kales and mustards I've grown, I'm assuming they're all cold-loving plants, so as soon as the snow is gone from my garden, those seeds are going in.
The big announcement that was part of this media kit was that Renee's Garden seeds now carry organic seeds. For me, that's not a deal-breaker one way or the other. Although I don't spray much, when I saw the squash bugs swarming over my pattypan plant last summer, I was happy I had insecticide in my garage that would do the trick. It wasn't organic, but I didn't lose my squash plant.
Whaddya think? Is organic important to you or not? Would you be influenced to buy or not buy a certain seed because it wasn't certified organic?
