Sweet valentine seeds

As I was sorting through the vegetable and herb seeds for this season, a handful of packets caught my attention. It must be because Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away because I couldn’t help but notice a sweet theme. All of these have either a sweet-sounding name, have a sweet taste-or both. Perhaps you’ll want to add some of these sweethearts to your vegetable garden:

Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to plan on adding something sweet to your garden this year. Here are some luscious plants to make you fall in love.

Who could resist planting a Sugar Baby watermelon? These personal-sized melons are small in size, but big on flavor. Wait for weather to warm and plant these in a warm, sunny spot and keep the soil evenly moist through the season. Fruits should be ready to harvest in about 75 days.

"Agriculture and seeds" provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, we pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants.

The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, to genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems, and ultimately to healthy people and communities.
