I also ordered a few things from Seeds Now because they were recommended by a farmer in a YouTube video I was watching (I don’t remember which one, unfortunately). Their reviews are good and prices are so low that I decided they were worth a try. I ordered summer savory, tarragon, rosemary, Glorious Gleam nasturtiums, marjoram, Shungiku edible chrysanthemums, Purple Top White Globe turnip (heirloom), American purple top rutabaga (heirloom), Purple Beauty bell pepper (heirloom), Red Burgundy okra (heirloom), garlic chives, Rapini broccoli raab (heirloom), Highbush blueberry, Mary Washington asparagus seeds (as opposed to the starts I ordered from Pinetree, heirloom), clover sprouts, alfalfa sprouts, and California Wonder bell pepper (heirloom, free promotional item). The total was less than $20 with a discount code I found online and shipping was free. If I like the results, I’ll try more items from them next year.

First seed order

I decided to go with Pinetree Super Seeds because my dad recommended them. Yes, I’m planting A LOT but I want to find out what we eat the most (all the vegetables I’m planting are things I’ve cooked/eaten before). Plus, using the woodchip method means a lower maintenance garden, which means I can grow a lot more!
