I feel more comfortable with the purchase of these seeds (2 cans). I like the variety offered and the fact that I can use any seeds produced (unlike the genetically changed seeds sold today that have been altered so you can NOT use any seeds produced). I was going to store the seeds in sealed barrels until I read that for every 7 degrees colder they're kept they'll last longer, so, they are now stored in our extra refrigerator (still in the can). Although I liked the selection of canned seeds, there are some additional seeds I am in the process of purchasing to round out the vegetables we enjoy.

great product for storage. these seeds will reproduce plants that have seeds that will grow. These are not genetically altered seeds.

Can't wait to plant these. The fruit and veggies that these plants produce can be used to plant new plants that will also produce fruit and veggies.

It likely grows in poor soil as advertised, however, I had to really prep my soil to get seeds to grow. It take still alot more work than I had in mind. Still where I worked hard on ground prep., it is a nice green. only time will tell if it returns thick next year after this draught ends.

Not worth it. Just go and get your own seeds for less.

I started tomato seeds in January and with this heat mat they have taken off. I would highly recommend this product.

This was a simple way for someone like me (who has very little talent in starting plants from seeds!) to follow simple instructions and grow my own herbs from seeds. Love this and will likely purchase a few more for transplantation to outdoors.

Thus far I have experienced a very high germination rate for seeds...

Read about Black Beauty grass seed in an article in the NYTimes where it was recommended. Used it both to overseed areas and to seed a bare area. Both areas have done well filling in with lush green grass. So far seems to be better than the seed blends I have tried in the past.

This is an awesome sprouter. I like that the trays stack, and it honestly doesn't take up too much counter space. I also like that it came with different seeds for me to try out. I started with the alfalfa and they were delicious. I'd recommend this to anyone that is a beginner with sprouting!

Great product, my tomatoe seeds were up quickly and are doing great. Peppers are under way next. So simple and I love seeing the quick results. This might be the best start I have ever had for my plants.

This EarthBox arrived quickly and had all parts as advertised. It was easy to set up this planter. You will need potting mix and plants or seeds. I will likely order another.

I planted some of the seeds the day I received this, less than a week ago, and all of them have sprouted. They're growing slowly, and repotting will be a challenge. If they survive that they should grow well.

I was scared about starting any kind of plant from a seed, because I'm not exactly known for having a green thumb! Having this mix of sprouting veggies and herbs though made it incredibly easy to create my own organic garden in my backyard with confidence! I'm not moving on to multiple other plants and veggies/fruits, and I know it wouldnt have been possible had I not opted for this very affordable mixture!

We bought this to start our window farm. It comes with good instructions and all the popular seeds. Its been several months and we are still enjoying growing them. They are a great addition to sandwiches. Having several jars is good because you can stagger the harvest as they take 4-5 days to mature.

When I purchased this item, I did not read the description thoroughly enough. In the 'title' it says sprouting kit (set of 3). I interpreted that to mean three complete kits. In reality, it comes with 3 jars... not 3 jars and 3 sets of seeds. Might not have purchased if I had understood that.
The well-known rhyme "April showers bring May flowers" is a simple example of the natural cycle of renewal that happens in the spring.

The first step is to contact your local nursery to see what grows best in your area. After that, follow Mother Nature's example and use the natural spring cycle as a guideline for caring for your own growing plants.

Making smoothies and milkshakes is easy with the right blender to mix everything together into a smooth consistency. A juicer, on the other hand, separates juice from fruit and vegetables by squeezing it. If you want the pure vegetable or fruit juice of a vegetable or fruit, you will probably need to buy a juicer, such as an orange juicer, rather than a kitchen blender. For thicker smoothies and drinks that still contain fruit pulp, however, blenders will work well. Read on for tips on using your food blender as a juicer for a variety of fruits.

Attracting birds to your yard or balcony is an easy way to make any afternoon more entertaining. If bird watching is on your list of things to do from home, then make sure to check Overstock.com for great prices on birdfeeders and birdbaths. Birdfeeders and birdbaths make your home attractive to feathered friends. Just make sure to set them up far enough from bushes so you're not sending them into an ambush by the neighbor's cat. Choose several sizes and shapes of bird feeders to attract multiple birds and put them out in early spring to encourage season-long visits. Small feeders tend to attract song birds while large feeders will require fewer refills; assess your needs and choose the best system for you. Don't forget a birdbath: You want the birds to feel welcome.

However, you can take other steps to keep bed bugs at bay or at least to find them before early, when it is easier to get rid of them.
