Possibly a Cornue Des Andes tomato, though I don’t know. These paste tomatoes are fine raw and they grow large on indeterminate plants.
Tomatoes, peppers, and winter squash from my garden to yours! As in some years past, I collected seeds from many of my crops in 2012, and I’d like to share them with my readers. The box titled, What Might You Get? lists the seeds I’m giving away and briefly describes the vegetables that should grow from them.
Here’s how the giveaway works:
I have quite a lot of seeds to give away and will organize them into “sets.” A complete set will include all the types of seeds listed in the What Might You Get? box. I’ll give away complete sets until I run out of a particular type of seed. Then, I’ll give away sets lacking whatever types of seeds I’m out of.
Here are the rules:
1. The seed giveaway ends at midnight on Sunday, February 24. No new entries or mailing list bumps are valid after that date.
2. Get on the mailing list by leaving a comment on this blog post. I’d love it if you’d tell me something about your garden and make me laugh.
3. Send me an email HERE that includes your snail mail address as well as the email address you use with your comment. If you plan to “bump” your entry (explained below), I’ll need your twitter name and/or facebook name so I can identify when you bump. If you post on your blog about the giveaway, include your blog’s URL in your email.
Completing items 2 and 3, gets you on to the end of my mailing list. I’ll mail seeds on a first-come-first served basis until I run out of sets… but there are some twists. You can move up on the mailing list by doing any or all of the following:
4. If you’re on Twitter, tweet a link to this giveaway that includes the hash tag #skgseeds.
5. If you’re on Facebook, post a link to this giveaway and include the hash tag #skgseeds in the text.
Each day that you Tweet or post on Facebook as explained in items 4 and 5, you’ll move up one place on the mailing list. The most you can move up in a calendar day is two places—one for Tweeting, and one for a Facebook post. Except for a one-time bump as explained in item 6:
Three neck pumpkins running from 12 to 17 pounds apiece. Enthusiasts feel these are the best squash to use in pumpkin pie.
6. If you’re on Pinterest, pin the Seed Giveaway photo from the top of this post and include the hash tag #skgseeds in the description of the pin. Again, if I can match your pin to your email address, your entry moves up two spots on the mailing list.
7. Finally, if you mention my giveaway on your own blog and encourage your readers to visit and enter, you automatically receive my gratitude along with a complete set of seeds (but still on a first-come-first-served basis; would that so many people blog about my giveaway, there won’t be enough seeds to go around). I’ll mail seeds to the entire list of bloggers (in the order that they post) before I mail to any other entrants.
At Least Get on the List!
Don’t be overwhelmed by the options. At least leave a comment and email your snail mail address (items 2 and 3). You’re likely to get some seeds (though, when I run out of these types of seeds, if I haven’t gotten to your name on the list, you won’t receive any).
When you do get seeds, please think of me during the growing season. I’d love to get occasional updates—perhaps with a photo. If you let me know when you write blog posts about what you grow from Small Kitchen Garden Seeds, I’ll let my readers know about your posts.
One sad caveat: This giveaway is open only to folks in the United States and Canada.
