It’s Spring time and we’ve been spending every possible moment that we can outside during these last few weeks. The girls love it and it gives me a renewed sense of energy, especially after all the moving stress that’s been happening! We’re in our new house and absolutely loving our surroundings but one thing we’re definitely missing is our container gardens this year.
Our new home has a wonderful yard but building our container gardens has been put on the back burner for a bit until we’re really settled in. But that doesn’t mean we have to skip on the Spring planting season, of course!
As a brand partnership for the month, Stonyfield Organic connected us with High Mowing Organic Seeds for our garden. We were sent quite the spread of seeds and that little lady above couldn’t have been happier. Besides arts and crafts, her next favorite thing to do in the world is to be outside planting [as long as she doesn’t get dirty, of course]! Since this project was born out of a collaboration with our friends at Stonyfield, I just had to get creative on how we were going to get our seeds to sprout – since we’re not sowing them right into the container gardens this year.
We chose to use our YoBaby containers this year for a couple reasons – the first being that we have a ton of these cups because Moreaya and I still love the YoBaby yogurt and two because I needed something a little more sturdy to sit on our kitchen windowsill. I let the girls choose which of the seeds they wanted to plant first and was pleasantly surprised by a couple of their choices [mainly the Summer Squash and choice of Peppers], but wasn’t at all surprised when Moreaya immediately chose to plant the organic tomato seeds as that girl eats tomatoes like their candy!
What if I were to tell you that there’s NO reason to waste your time looking at the racks of seeds inside your local big box stores anymore? It’s true – I spend way too much time perusing the racks to find the few organic seeds that they carry and I always get so frustrated at the selection.
Well, not only does High Mowing Seed have your Vegetables and Fruit seeds covered – they carry a wide variety of Herbs and Flower seeds as well. The best part is – you know if you see it on their website or in their catalog [request your free catalog here], it’s organic and non-gmo… no guessing and no extra reading required. The best part? They offer Free Shipping on ALL standard orders to the US and Canada!!! Seriously – no reason to buy seeds anywhere else now, right?!
We’ll likely be planting our veggies right into my in-laws garden, since we won’t have our own this year, but that way the girls will still get to tend to their plants and watch the amazing process of growing their own food from seeds!
Do your kids love to garden?
Where do you start your organic seeds – straight in the ground or in starter cups?
