This week I received my heirloom seed order from my Ebay order.  Here is what was included in the package.

  • A sealed mylar bag with the date the seeds were packaged and sealed.
  • Instructions on how to store the seeds (preferred method the refrigerator or the freezer).  I put mine in the freezer
  • Instruction sheet on how to harvest the seeds of the plants
  • Instruction sheet on how to sprout the seeds inside the home
  • A sheet instructing me to go to YouTube for sprouting, harvesting and saving seed instructional videos.

Here is list of the seeds that are in the mylar bag:

  • Manalucie Tomato (100 SEEDS)
  • Blue Lake Snap Bean (50 seeds)
  • Dark Red Kidney Bean great in chili (50 seeds)
  • Butter crunch Lettuce (400 seeds)
  • GREEN Broccoli (200 seeds)
  • CABBAGE ALL SEASON (100 seeds)
  • LITTLE FINGERS CARROT  (300 seeds)
  • Golden Bantam Sweet Corn (50 seeds)
  • Cantaloupe Planter’s JUMBO (50 seeds)
  • Market more Cucumber (50 seeds)
  • Ashley Cucumber (50 seeds)
  • Eggplant black beauty (50 seeds)
  • Cherry Belle Radish (50 seeds)
  • Spinach (50 seeds)
  • California Wonder Bell Pepper (Green) (50 seeds)
  • Jalapeno Pepper (50 seeds)
  • Florida Giant Watermelon (50 huge seeds) 50 lb watermelons
  • Yellow Crookneck Squash (50 seeds)
  • Zucchini Black Beauty (50 seeds)
  • Long Red Cayenne Pepper (50 seeds)
  • Onion (100 seeds) Fast Grower Tastes Great
  • Dark Red Beet (50 seeds) Great Taste
  • Fordhook Lima Beans (50 seeds)
  • Sunflower Seeds (50 seeds)
  • Beefsteak Tomato (100 seeds)

Seeds I wanted that were not in the package.

  • Pumpkin
  • Broccoli
  • Sweet Peas
  • Red Bell Pepper
  • Soy Bean (Edamamie)
  • Pinto Beans

Before I go purchasing more seeds, I need to make an attempt at growing these.  Knowing I am in an apartment, Corn may be a stretch, as some of the others, but need to give it a shot, because the price was right on the seeds.  Fall planting season is upon us, so I need to identify which seeds are cool weather hearty and can be grown into the early winter.
