It’s Another Contest! This Week’s Prize: Survival Seeds!

by heather

logo-hometown-copyOh, I love giveaways so much! And, I have a great contest to tell all of you about this week.

Hometown Seeds is offering all of you a chance to win some of their awesome seeds for gardening this spring! The contest runs today, February 9, through next Tuesday, February 16.

On Wednesday, February 17, I will pick several winners.

What can you win?

Seeds for this year’s garden!

Hometown seeds offers seeds for vegetables, wildflowers, annuals, herbs, and perennials. But the coolest thing they offer are survival seeds. Survival seeds are not genetically modified, which means you can harvest the seeds from this year’s harvest to plant again next year. Survival seeds enable you to have a garden and not depend on buying new seeds year after year. As you can imagine, this is a big money saver.

What You Can Win…black-beauty-eggplant-seeds

There will be several winners in this contest!

The Grand Prize winner will receive one package of survival seeds. This package contains everything you need to start a garden up to 3/4 of a acre. It includes seeds for tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, pole beans, bell peppers, and much more. And, you’ll be able to harvest these seeds for years to come. If you’re not ready to plant this year, then don’t worry! If you stick them in the freezer, they’ll stay fresh and plantable for up to 10 years.

There will also be a First Place winner. This winner will receive one variety pack of seeds. The variety pack has everything from wildflowers to purple carrots. Yay!

If You Have a Blog, You’re Also Eligible To Win!

If you have a blog, then you can also win some seeds for yourself. If your readers are the kind that focus on gardening, the environment, or frugality, then you can win by hosting a link to Hometown Seeds on your site.

Ryan February 9, 2010 at 2:16 pm

I’d definitely get some vegetable seeds.

John February 9, 2010 at 2:26 pm

The survival seeds looked the best to me actually. My parents already do a lot of flowers in their greenhouse so didn’t see anything that grabbed my attention. The idea behind the survivals though really intrigues me.

Been following your blog off and on for a year. Hello! Found you again thought your buddy RR.

Matt February 9, 2010 at 3:16 pm

I’d want some vegetable/survival seeds. Tomatoes, zucchini, beans, cucumbers… I’m getting hungry thinking about it!

Blair February 9, 2010 at 4:24 pm

I would love some Lupine seeds, they are so pretty and I think it would be fun to sprinkle Johnny Jump-up seed in the lawn!

Mrs. Money February 9, 2010 at 4:46 pm

I like their survival seeds!

Katie Schaefer February 9, 2010 at 4:52 pm

I would take any of the vegetable survival seeds…especially zucchini & tomatoes! My hubby and I had our first garden last year and it was a huge success! We’re excited to get started again this spring!

Sage Norbury February 9, 2010 at 5:46 pm

I would really love some of the Survival Waltham Butternut Winter Squash seeds. My family loves squash and these would be great seeds to start, keep and restart.

Thanks for the contest.

Deb February 9, 2010 at 6:15 pm

Oh, I can’t wait to plant tomatoes, peppers, and beans.

Emily February 9, 2010 at 7:26 pm

I planted zucchini last year and harvesting a huge one from the patch grubby soil in front of my apartment building felt like a victory. So those are definitely on my list. I’ve heard peas are fun, too. And, of course, there are few things in life more wonderful than a home-grown tomato.

batty February 10, 2010 at 5:12 am

oh man, i could do so much with those survival seeds!

Missy Sorg February 10, 2010 at 6:21 am

I’d love to have the Blue Lake Pole green beans and the American Leek seeds! We have a earth box, a cold-frame and a small garden space. My husband stays up late on those summer nights canning!

Kim Jackson February 10, 2010 at 7:28 am

My favorites are Forget-Me-Not, Blue Bird Myosotis Seeds.

I like to grow good things . And these look very good for the world.

Julie February 10, 2010 at 9:12 am

I would love some corn seeds. I started my vegetable garden last year and my husband was looking forward to the corn. Unfortunately we ended up with just one sorry ear. Here’s to better results this year.

The Mom February 10, 2010 at 9:50 am

We love any kind of sugar snap peas. The sugar daddy peas are wonderful!

Tammy February 10, 2010 at 9:54 am

I would most definitely like the Survival Seeds. With all the cut-backs we’ve had to make, this seed package would be so very appreciated. Thank you!

Susan February 10, 2010 at 10:34 am

All those seeds look great, but I think I’d like to try the wildflowers after reading one of the testimonials on the site.

Christy February 10, 2010 at 10:59 am

zucchini, carrots, and tomatoes — yummy!!

Sandy Gates February 10, 2010 at 11:05 am

Would love to have the Survival Seed the idea of being able to keep & store is very appealing.
The flower seeds are just what I’m using in my work in progress cottage garden. The prices
are good also.

I just bought my first house and cannot wait to start a garden. I definitely want to plant some zucchini because my 10 month old daughter LOVES my homemeade zucchini muffins and I cannot wait to have zucchini on the grill this summer!

Katie February 10, 2010 at 2:43 pm

I think the survival seeds are great. They have everything we would eat in there!

Brian Kynaston February 10, 2010 at 7:02 pm

I would like to plant the Detroit Red Beets.

Tanya O'Connor February 11, 2010 at 8:03 am

I love the idea of the survival seeds! They seem to have everything you would need in that package. I also especially like planting tomatoes because the home-grown ones are so much better than anything you can get at the store. The beets and peas are favorites too!

Tanya February 11, 2010 at 8:11 am

I really like the survival seeds, it looks like everything you would need is in there! I also love planting tomatoes because home-grown tomatoes are so much better than anything you can get in the store πŸ™‚ Also looking forward to planting peas and beets!

Caroline February 12, 2010 at 12:09 am

Ooh! Wonder Bells and Black Beauty zucchini! I also want to try eggplant and okra this year.

C T Hall February 12, 2010 at 2:44 am

The sweet corn looks good to grow and enjoy.

ariana February 13, 2010 at 8:51 am

Oh I love the vegetable seeds, especially the tomatoes!!!!!!! My family could live on tomatoes all year long if we could. Yummy!!!!!!!!!!

Lindsay February 13, 2010 at 12:04 pm

I just spent forever looking through those beautiful flowers…but its the survival seeds i think that are truly the most valuable and desirable. i am daydreaming of garden fresh salads as i type….yum! πŸ™‚

Juli February 13, 2010 at 1:36 pm

I usually grow potted herbs and so those are always a safe bet for me – I love a variety of basil. However, I want to try some veggies this year too.

Barbara February 14, 2010 at 1:06 am

Winter Squash: Vegetable Spaghetti Squash Seeds, Sweet Dumpling Squash Seeds
Summer Squash: Zucchini Golden Seeds, Sunburst Hybrid Squash Seeds
Sugary Hybrid Tomato Seeds
Pepper: Sweet Banana Seeds, Sweet Big Red Seeds, Hungarian Yellow Wax Seeds, Habenero Seeds –

I think those survival seeds would make a great gift also. I am a gardening newbie….would love to win the survival seeds.

Jessie February 15, 2010 at 7:51 pm

I can’t wait to have enough outdoor space to garden. I would love the zucchini, butternut squash, spinach, carrots, tomatoes, sweet corn, and spanish onions.

Your blog is the only one I check consistently. Keep up the good work.

Jim February 16, 2010 at 11:42 am

I’d go mostly vegetable/herbs. Asparagus, Broccoli, Carrots, Peppers, Onion…they’re all so good

Amber February 16, 2010 at 1:58 pm

Any of the garden veggie seeds look great and GMO free is a plus. I don’t know about anyone else but after all the snow this winter everyone will be ready to get out in the garden!

Tammy S February 16, 2010 at 4:37 pm

Hi, Love your site!
And I would love to try seeds from Hometown – especially those Black Beauty zucchini! Can never have too much zucchini, right? πŸ™‚
