Bee-Friendly Garden Seed Packs Giveaway

I am so excited to team up with Mary from Mary's Heirloom Seeds to bring you a giveaway that is not only great for your yard, but for bees as well!!


From Mary,
"In case you missed it, there have been numerous reports over the last few year about mass bee die-offs, CCD and the possible correlation between bee deaths and neonictinoide poisons.  It has been argued that loss of bee populations will put human life as we know it at risk.  Bees are an integral part of nature and human life."

  2. I had a problem last year with not enough bees to pollinate my snap peas...Iwas literally out there with a tiny paintbrush, trying to do it myself. This is a great idea!

  3. Loving my garden this year!! I built two big raised beds in the garden spot while DH was out of town working. No, I did not take up all the garden space but I do have plans to build more after the season is over. I am getting older and they are so much easier to work in. I have planted green beans, purple hull peas, birdhouse gourds on an arbor along with cucumbers, zucchini and yellow squash, lots of heirloom tomatoes, onions, beets for me, kale for the first time, dill, rosemary, sage, and I started my asparagus bed and they are coming up!! And lots of sunflowers for the chickens.

  4. For the first time in years, I have spotted honey bees flying around. I would love to plant more flowers to help support and grow our little bee population.

  5. Yes, we do have gardens! We use raised beds and squarefoot gardening. We have a variety of summer squash, winter squash, beans, potatoes, swiss chard, peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, sweet potatoes, fennel, onions, carrots, pumpkins, cantelope, cucumbers, asparagus, lettuce as well as a fruit orchard with plums, peaches, pears, cherries, figs, apricots, nectarines, apples, oranges, strawberries and lemons. We just added two bee hives last month so these seeds and plants would be PERFECT! Thank you for the chance :-)

  6. Thanks for another awesome giveaway! Right now I'm working on setting up cold frames (still in design phase), which will double as summer raised beds, allowing me to cover the plants when the field near our house is being sprayed. Planning a root bed, greens and edible flower bed, herb and more flowers bed and then the "typical" fruits and veggies. Also designing the layout for the future fruit trees. I've seen plenty of bumblebees around here but no honey bees, so far this year. Hoping I won't need to set up a hive, but I will if it means fruits and veggies grown here for myself and my son.

    1. We were going to put in 2 hives this year but sadly the person we were going to get our bees from lost all his hives this winter because it was so hard. :( We are hoping next year!

  8. Trying so hard to help the bee population. Would love these seeds, especially since I have room in my garden and I'm a tad bit behind in getting some things in the ground. Will be checking out your site now that I know it's there!

    1. Me too! I want more and more plants. Darn chickens need to stop eating my green bean plants! LOL

  14. I normally have a veggie garden with tomatoes, squash, peppers, and more. This year we acquired 4 more chickens and they have taken over the space. Once the fence is fixed we will be planting again.
