Grow it forward contest

Post  shannon1 on 3/4/2012, 3:56 am

I was wondering who else has entered the "Grow It Forward Heirloom Garden" contest. I know you'er out there because I found out about the contest here on the forum.

If this is the first time you have heard about it the contest is on the your garden web site. I would love to follow all the square foot gardens entered. I think it is a wonderful opptunity for us to show folks the best way to garden, the SFG way!Very Happy

I entered the contest to get the seeds, for I don't think any of the seeds I ordered are heirloom, but they are all organic and open polinated. I got a email saying I didn't get the seeds.

What are you growing that is heirloom? or are you just growing the ones they send you? Jo

I entered. Did not get seeds from them. But I did order heirloom seeds from Baker. I plan on documenting their progress along the way. Maybe I will vlog them...who knows.

Sounds like fun!

I did get an email saying I had won seeds and they would be mailed in a couple of weeks. That was on the 21st of Feb. I am looking forward to the seeds. I will let you all know what I get Smile

I did not win seeds but already have some heirloom vegies, if the cold last night did not kill'em.

Seminole Pumpkin cultived by the Seminole people since they came to Florida in the 17th century

Datil Pepper brought to my town St.Augustine when the Minorcans came 1700's as indentured servents

Tom Thumb lettuce 1830's

Oak Leaf Lettuce 1771

Kentucky Wonder Pole Bean 1864 (soon to be planted)



@Hav-v are you entering?

@littlejo you may be suprised to find of those OP seeds are heirlooms.

@ Jamesindetroit so glad you'er in what is your garden's name so I can follow you?

I had not thought about it much, but yes a lot of the seeds I have are heirloom. My fav lettuce is Tom Thumb, so good, and Little Gem is going to be planted soon.

Did you figure it out? If you go to your garden above the blog area is some icons in green, a camera is one that will add photos.
