It’s a Great Time For a Seed Giveaway

There has never been a better time to plant seeds and grow your own food. With that in mind, I would like to help people as much as I can with my knowledge and maybe with an extra little bonus – some vegetable seeds. I have three packets of seeds to give away to one blessed person:

  • Carrot ‘Scarlet Nantes’
  • Lettuce ‘Great Lakes’
  • Tomato ‘Gardener’s Delight’ (organic cherry tomato)

The tomatoes will have to wait until next season to be sown (late winter) but the carrots and lettuces can be sown now. These varieties are favourites of ours that grow well for us so I want to share them with someone else.

All you have to do in order to have a chance to win them is comment below what your favourite vegetable is. And yes, botanical ‘fruit’ vegetables (tomatoes, pumpkins, etc.) count as well.

Terms & Conditions:

  • There are three packets of seeds to be won by one person.
  • You must comment below on the Twiglet Homestead website to be in the draw.
  • You must be living in New Zealand to enter.
  • Competition ends at 12pm (current DST) Wednesday 25th March.
  • All entries will be assigned a number and a random number generator will be used to draw the winner.
  • The winner will be asked to provide their postal address to receive the prize.

So, what’s your favourite vegetable?

  1. I’m sowing my tomatoes now in the Northern Hemisphere. I do not qualify for the drawing though, outside of New Zealand. Besides, I dislike carrots, and have plenty of greens growing wild outside of the garden. Besides, I don’t even have a favorite vegetable. Tomatoes, okra, turnip greens, collards . . . ? I really don’t know.

    1. Sorry about parading carrots around again. Hehe. Now okra is something that I’m currently curious about. Lots of people in the US seem to grow it but I’ve never grown or eaten it. How do you use it?

      1. I can tolerate carrots. I actually sowed seed for them just because everyone else wants them. Incidentally, I grew only a little bit of okra, and I did not tell anyone about it yet. It is rather unpopular here. It is more popular in the South, where it probably grows better in the humid warmth, but even there, it is not as popular as other vegetables. The main complaint is that it is slimy when chopped up. When battered and fried, the slime is not much of a bother. I really do not care what others think about it. It is one of my favorite vegetables, either battered and fried, or pickled. It does like a warm spot in the garden, and it must be harvested while young. Mature pods get too old fast.

      2. I think that it became popular a long time ago, not because people liked it, but because it did well where other vegetables did not. It grows well where cotton does well. It is actually related to cotton.
