Growing up in North Dakota, January and February always felt like the worst months of a seemingly interminable winter. That … hasn’t changed, unfortunately. However as an adult and a homeowner, I’m happy to have a hobby that keeps me busy thinking of warmer months: my garden. This year, I can get a whole bunch of the seeds I need right here at work! Did you know Swanson sells organic vegetable seeds?
High Mowing Organic Seeds are cultivated on a network of certified organic seed farms in Vermont, New York, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, and California run by growers who are committed to producing non-GMO seed.
It's getting to be time to set up the plant light (and cat barricade) for the seeds I can start indoors—yummy options like healthy Red Russian Kale, fragrant Sweet Basil, and juicy Heirloom Brandywine Tomatoes. Swanson has all the garden staples, including direct-sow seeds like snap peas and bush beans. Granted, it's almost three months before I can safely put plants in the ground, but we’re just not going to think about that now, right? No need to get ahead of myself.
