The box contains the soil, seeds, and garden markers for the project.  There was no info card or the cloth bag that previously appeared.

our little roots december 2015 seeds stakes You get organic soil, some garden marker stakes in case you plant among other plants, and the seeds themselves.  The seed package has planting and care instructions.  For your subscription, you can choose between fruits, vegetables, flowers, or herbs, and all seeds are non-GMO and organic.  We  received 100% organic Spinach America, a slow-bolting variety.

We were really about the selection this month – it’s intended to be sown 1-2 weeks before last frost date, which is still happening in many areas of the unseasonably warm country!

This is a nice simple project to do with kids, and it is always fun to watch things that you planted grow into something beautiful or edible.  I like that the soil is organic — if you choose the herbs, you know that you will be able to add them to your food without worrying about contaminants.  With an annual (no pun intended) subscription, the monthly price drops to $7.95, making it a better value still. However, we’d like to see some sort of intro card for new subscribers or even a monthly card with gardening related ideas or activities.  We were happy about this month’s choice and our kids will be excited to go plant some spinach (eating it is a different matter entirely!).
