Spring garden planting has already started here in Central Florida. Our pole beans are already sprouting along with a few other herbs and vegetables. For most people in the US there is still plenty of time to prepare for planting. We would love to help one of our blog followers to get a garden going with this set of 17 seed packages from Thompson and Morgan. These seeds were packed for sale before the end of 2013, so the viability will be slightly less compared to the seeds that they are selling this year. Thompson and Morgan provided these seed packs and many more for free distribution to our friends at the Garden Hoard seed company, who in turn shared some of them with us.
The seed packs included in this giveaway are as follows:
Sweet Green Basil
Crisp Mint Lettuce
Mixed Salad leaves
Alyssum Golden Queen
Parsley Giant of Italy
Niche Mixed Salad
Depending on your climate, some of these plants may be better suited for a fall garden. Right now our Lettuce is already bolting. We plant our greens in September and October.

Gardeners should also hop over to Florida Backyard Gardening who is hosting a giveaway for us which includes Aquarian Bath's Gardener's Scrubby Soap, which recently received a make over, and a garden themed Hot or Cold therapy Neck Pillow.
