Wordful Wednesday – a Seedy Prize

Wednesday, March 25th, 2009

Wordful Wednesday is hosted by Angie of SevEn cLoWn CirCuS

This week for Wordful Wednesday I just have to share about a wonderful gift I won from my blogging pal, SusieJ.

Last month, Susie had a drawing for $10 worth of seeds from the W. Atlee Burpee Co. The packet includes:

  1. Bush snap beans
  2. Bibb lettuce
  3. Bell peppers
  4. Big Top carrots, which grow up to 8″ long
  5. Super Snappy garden peas
  6. Steak sandwich tomatoes, which produce 10 ounce fruits

Of course to go with my prize seeds I went out and purchased a seed starting tray and some Seed Starting Jiffy Mix. I know the perfect place in the house for this project. By Friday I should have a picture of our living room bay window, transformed into a seed starting station, for Photostory Friday!

This give-away is part of Susie’s effort to encourage folks to take charge of their grocery bills by growing their own fresh produce, as much as possible. Further, she is encouraging us to donate any surplus produce to our local food banks. If you would like to broadcast this effort, just grab a button from Susie’s blog, then blog about it, and grow your garden!

Thank you, Susie, for the seeds. I’m very excited to get started. Usually, we purchase seedlings to plant in the garden, but I think I can do this!
