My Edible Garden

I've been gardening for most of my life and have been a devoted fan of organic gardening the whole time. It just makes so much more sense to work in harmony with Mother Nature than to fight her. Besides which it is better for the planet and better for our bodies. Here you can see what I'm planting and harvesting, with gardening hints and resources thrown in for good measure.

bean seeds
I have been looking through my seed boxes and realizing I have a lot of seeds that I will probably not get planted before they are too old to sprout. So I'm going to give some away. A couple of times a month, probably on a Saturday morning I'll make a post about what I'm giving away. If you'd like some of the seeds, then all you have to do is make a comment on that post (commenting on FB or G+ doesn't count, you have to come to the blog and comment directly on the blog post). Then I will put all the names of the commentors in the hat and draw one out and on my Harvest Monday post I'll announce the winner. I will try and contact you through your blog or your profile, but I'm not responsible if your contact info is hidden. In that case you should contact me and send me your snail mail address so I can mail your seeds to you.

I will also say that I will send the seeds to other countries, but it is up to you to know if you can import them or not. I don't have the time to research the rules and regulations for such. Also, like I said, some of these are older seeds and the germination rate may not be the best. If I recorded the year the seeds were saved then I'll tell you that and maybe make a guess at how thick you should plant them to get a reasonable stand of plants.

And today, since I'm not cooking (my Mom is, I'll go over and help her in a bit) I've been working in the yard some more. I'm actually making a lot of progress out there and things are looking much better.


  1. Good to hear :) I will try and check it out. As I finally have a green house and have been harvesting tomatoes, patty pan and acorn squash. As well as a few pumpkins that made great pumpkin pie.

  2. I'd love some of your precious seeds, Mary! I'll have to pay attention!

  3. Exciting! I'll keep my eyes open for your posts! Thanks!
