It’s not quite planting weather yet in most of the country, but in four to six weeks, it most certainly will be. And, thanks to a Twitter message from Dina of Nutritious Feast, I learned today that Earthbound Farm Organic is giving away free seed packets to anyone who provides them a modicum of marketing information. If you’re willing to give up your address, you, too, can grow a little lettuce this spring on their dime.
It’s the 25th anniversary of this organic farm, which, to be fair, is about as industrial as organic farms get. But that doesn’t mean you can’t take the seeds and grow them in a sustainable, organic manner.
I’m hoping that by the time my seeds get here, I’ll have some dirt to put them in. But if that’s not the case, I’ve got a plan that involves a windowsill. I’ve had about enough of this not-growing business.
