Soggy Creek Seed Co. Samples

Last week I got a bit of a surprise in the mail, free seeds! Yan from Soggy Creek Seed Co. was very kind and sent me some more samples. If you recall from last year, they sell organic open pollinated seeds that they rename with rather funny variety names. Who knew seeds could be funny? I will look forward to sowing these seeds this season. Particularly the purple topped turnip, always wanted to try them.

Yan also mentioned in his postcard that he would love to supply some seeds for a seed draw. I will get in contact with him about this and then update everyone.

  6. Yay for free seeds. And love the packaging. Amusing. I do hope they put the correct name on it though. I would hate not knowing which variety I had.

    Looks like you had some help taking the photo. Nice job styling the shot Charlie :)

  8. I saw these in huge array of seeds packages on my local nursery - they really stood out - in a good way! I didn't realize they were untreated, etc - I would have paid more attention to them. Next time!

  9. Yeah a draw would be fun! I love how many comments are always on your posting Dan, a real community here.

    Daphne, for sure the traditional heirloom names can also be found on the online catalogue (http://seeds.soggycreek.com/catalogue/)

    Excited for the draw(s)!

  15. Yea! Another seed company to add to my list! I'm growing almost all open-pollinated veggies, so I can save seed to give away to others.

  18. I love this idea! I hope you are able to do a seed give-away! I also trade seeds on heirloomseedswap but I'm new to gardening. Your ideas will definitely help me have a good garden this year. If you'd like to follow along, I've started a blog to show my progress on tinyurbangarden.blogspot.com

    I'd love to see you there too!
