Urban Organic Gardener is a monthly subscription service that sends a collection of curated heritage garden seeds to your home at precisely the right time for growing them in your garden! When you sign up, you answer a few questions including how much experience you have with gardening; where your garden will be located; whether you plan to use containers, raised beds, land or hydroponics; and how much sunlight your plants will receive. Then the folks at Urban Organic Gardener consider where you live and put together a curated selection of organic seeds and send them to you.
Each month, your seeds will arrive along descriptions and information you’ll want to know when cultivating your plants from seeds.
Also included in each shipment are garden markers and soil pellets.
After your seeds have sprouted and it’s time for replanting, Urban Organic Gardener recommends dissolving these epsom salts in water and using the solution to water the roots, but not the leaves of your plant.
For what it’s worth, this is what I told Urban Organic Gardener: I’m a beginner who plans to garden in my backyard in containers in full sun. Let’s see what they sent!
I’m excited to receive these pole beans! According to Urban Organic Gardener, they’re an heirloom variety that has been around for hundreds of generations. Of all my edible plants this year, beans seem to be doing the best. It’s been a brutal summer to date, yet my beans are thriving. I can’t wait to get these in pots!
I’m excited about these Boston pickling cucumbers! There are few things in this world that I enjoy more than homemade pickles, so fingers crossed these take root! Urban Organic Gardener says that the plant will keep growing so long as it’s picked. Great!
More beans! Yay! I love it when the seeds I plant grow well, and I have a feeling these will do well in Texas this summer. Urban Organic Gardener says that this is a high yield variety that freezes well. Perfect!
My son and I love carrots! They’re a mainstay in his lunch each day, so it’ll be great if we’re able to grow our own. These grow to be 7 inches long and 2 inches thick, so I’ll either need to put them in a raised bed or put a number of them in a large pot together.
I enjoyed seeing these Kale seeds. I never knew what they looked like before receiving this package. While kale isn’t my favorite vegetable, it’s good for me, and I look forward to experimenting with it once these heads mature. This old Italian heirloom variety is sometimes called Tuscan Kale or Dinosaur Kale.
Thanks to Urban Organic Gardener, I’ve been having so much fun in my yard each morning! I’ve enjoyed watching my squash, cucumbers, pumpkins and okra sprout and grow and can’t wait until they start producing some fruit! As I said, though, our summer here has been brutal, so if these don’t bear much fruit, I’m not going to hold it against Urban Organic Gardener (my old CSA had to call off their season early because between the nonstop 100+ degree temperatures and lack of rain, they couldn’t produce any more food). Still, I’m optimistic, and I can’t wait to see what I’m able to produce with these seeds! I’m thrilled to be receiving this subscription, and I can’t wait to see what they send me next month!
