If you read my newsletter then you’ve probably heard me talking about one of my new favorite things: The Seeds of the Month Club. Gardening is a huge passion of mine so the idea getting a variety pack of seeds sent to my front door once a month is like getting a Christmas present in my mailbox every few weeks.
If you haven’t heard of the Seeds of the Month Club, it’s a monthly membership service where you can sign up to receive open pollinated NON-GMO heirloom seeds in the mail every month. You have no choice in what you will get each month, but they base the selection that they send you on your growing region. Also, you receive 8 packets your first month and 4 packets each subsequent month.
I signed up for a one year subscription which costs $2.96 per month. I received my first package within days of signing which was a pleasant surprise. Since it was my first month I received 8 packets of seeds. I was a little worried that I would get a bunch seeds that I wouldn’t grow, but I have to say that wasn’t the case at all. Here is a list of the varieties that I received:
1. Purple Beauty Bell Peppers
2. Lemon Basil
3. Golden Summer Crookneck Squash
4. Spring Rapani Broccoli Raab
5. Garlic Chives
6. Large Cherry Tomato
7. American Flag Leek
8. Rio Grande Tomatillo
Out of these 8 varieties, broccoli is probably the only thing that I won’t grow. I will definitely be planting everything else come spring. I especially want to try growing the Tomatillo as I’ve never tried them. I’m already looking forward to my next shipment of seeds. Here’s my list of pros and cons for joining The Seeds of the Month Club.
Open-pollinated NON-GMO Heirloom Seeds.
Great price at less than $1 per packet shipped.
Exciting to receive seeds each month.
You can save seed from the plants that you grow since they are all heirloom varieties.
You can’t specify which seeds you will receive.
You may not like the varieties that you receive.
You may end up with too many seeds. (Is this really a problem??)
In conclusion, I’m pleased with my first set of seeds and I love the novelty and excitement of receiving a random selection each month, especially during the wintertime. If you are a gardener or know someone who is then I would recommend considering a subscription to this really cool club. 🙂
