Time to plant the greens

It's so warm, it really feels like Spring and most greens should be planted right now. I took advantage of some complimentary seeds from and have planted some container lettuce: Sweetie Baby Romaine and Garden Babies Butterhead.
My husband worked some fresh soil into our container box garden and tomorrow I hope to plant Broccoli Raab Super Rapini, Sweet Curly Parsley, Salad scallions, delicious duo, container chard Pot of Gold and Portugese Kale.
Renee Shepherd's seeds are her selection of heirloom, open-pollinated and hybrid varieties. Her seed packets come with good descriptions and planting instructions tailored for each plant.

There are so many different types of seeds available to us now. It is a bit overwhelming. Not only are there different varieties of the same plant, there are different ways the seeds are produced. There are cultivar (cultivated variety which can be a hybrid or open-pollinated); genetically engineered; genetically modified; open-pollinated; hybrid; heirloom and of course organic.For more information on this, visit
