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.
Urban Organic Farmer changed up its information sheet this month and left out the epsom salts. I love the new included directions for using soil pellets!
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 love lettuce and can’t wait to try this variety! Urban Organic Farmer describes it as similar to romaine. It’s also heat resistant–perfect for early fall in Texas!
Being a southern girl at heart, there are few things I enjoy more than some great collard greens. I may just have to purchase the Grit’s cookbook once these have reached maturity so that I can make my favorite vegetarian collards at home!
My son is a huge fan of carrots, so these will be appreciated!
I love roasting radishes and serving them during taco nights! I love that these are quick to mature and harvest! Waiting for taco nights is not easy!
My son loves sauteed spinach and I love spinach salads, so this will be eaten quickly. Urban Organic Farmer says fall crops taste best, so I can’t wait for this to mature!
Thanks to Urban Organic Gardener, I’ve been having so much fun in my yard each morning! My son joins me regularly, and I’m thrilled that he’s so excited to join me! We love monitoring (and admiring) our fruits and vegetables as they grow and bear fruit. Since I’ve started gardening, the wildlife in my back yard has really started to flourish. I regularly see bugs of all varieties, butterflies, bees, birds and even hummingbirds! Sometimes I just look out the window admiring them all. I’m thrilled to be receiving this subscription, and I can’t wait to see what they send me next month!
