One of the many blessings of homeschooling our children is incorporating our science lessons while planting an organic garden for our family to enjoy.
Yes, it a homeschool mom’s dream to have our little children run to the garden to select delicious, fresh organic vegetables for our supper each evening.
Imagine no more! You can make it a reality!
You can learn how to grow your own food easily and naturally!
We recently moved and had to leave behind our vegetable garden that my husband maintained for several years.
My husband has always loved browsing through the vibrant, colored Baker’s Creek Seed Catalog and found great joy in planning our garden each season. He and the children were the main keepers of the garden. I was not active in the garden, but always had an interest. I usually stayed behind minding an infant.
I enjoyed all the plump and organic vegetables that grew from the Baker’s Creek Heirloom Seeds my family planted each year.
When my family and I opened the Small Southern Heirloom Container, we were ecstatic. There were 30 full sized seed packers containing 15 types of vegetable with 30 varieties. I’m not sure which we found more interesting the tomato pineapple or the melon banana. We will be preparing the soil come late summer for our Fall garden. We are super excited to have an organic garden again. The seeds will maintain for 4-10 years if kept in a dry and cool environment. Planting a variety will enable us to pick out our family favorites for next year.
Since I have no garden experience, I was immensely intrigued with the book, The Heirloom Life Gardener. The beautiful book is filled with vibrant colored images that qualifies in our home as a coffee table book! It’s truly an entertaining and informative read for the beginner gardener, as well as, the experienced. The first half of the book peeks into the lives of the cofounders of the Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company and explains exactly what a heirloom seed is and the many benefits of heirloom seeding. There are step by step detailed instructions of how to start a garden from scratch even for the beginner. I was fascinated and could not put it down.
The second part of the book is an A to Z Growing Guide that informs the gardener how to plant, growing tips, pest and disease control, seed saving, and suggestions in the kitchen with each vegetable.
This lovely book informs the reader the Baker Creek way of growing your own food easily and naturally. It’s all you need to get started and maintain an organic garden for your family.
A homeschool family’s delight!
Now for the most exciting part!
Jere and Emilee Gettle, cofounders of the Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company, want one of my readers to receive their book, The Heirloom Life Gardener! I will pick a random winner on July 9th at 12a.
*I received a Small Southern Seed Collection and a copy of The Heirloom Life Gardener in exchange for my honest review. No other compensation was giving.
