baker creek heirloom seeds {giveaway!}

Yesterday I mentioned how excited we are to start our seedlings for our garden. Every year Jon waits with baited breath for the Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds catalog to show up at our house. He spends hours poring over it, plotting out our garden for the year.

It is no secret that we love Baker Creek. I listed out the five main reasons why last year.
This year is no different and we already ordered our seeds. In addition to some of our favorites from previous years, such as this zucchini and this tomato, this year we picked out a few new items to try:
{May Queen lettuce}
{Lucid Gem tomato}
{Zebrune shallot onion}
We also already purchased:
-this grow light
-this potting mix
-these seedling bags
-this vegan fertilizer
-these seed starter trays in order to start our Baker Creed seedlings. 

Once again this year, Baker Creek has partnered with me to give away an Heirloom Seed Collection worth $48! 
Simply use the widget below to enter and come back on Friday, March 9th to find out the winner!

a Rafflecopter giveaway Disclaimer: Baker Creek offered to give away an heirloom seed collection at no cost to me as part of this blog post. All opinions and thoughts are my own.

  38. For my birthday the year before last, I asked for cash!! �� And I used every penny to order Baker Creek seeds of all sorts. Last year was my first year with a big garden, and I learned a lot. I couldn’t be more excited about this year’s garden, and I will be planting many of the things I planted last year, as well as some new plants. A few of my favorite discoveries were the beautiful orach, the tiniest and sweetest white tomatoes, and okra that stood over 6 feet tall!
