Cornell Cooperative Extension in Warren County is offering its Vegetable Garden Seed Kit Fundraiser for the 2011 planting season. It’s not too early to start preparing for spring and summer planting. The prices for store-bought vegetables are sky-rocketing and growing your own fresh vegetables could save you money. Spending time outdoors and eating your home-grown vegetables is also a perfect way to ‘Go Healthy!’
Right now, Cornell Cooperative Extension is offering a limited supply of two new Vegetable Garden Seed Kits, the ‘Healthy Salad’ Garden Kit, and the ‘Cabbage Patch n’ More’ Garden Kit. Each kit includes six seed packs; full indoor, outdoor and container planting instructions for each vegetable; the new, 2011 Cornell Cooperative
Extension ‘Vegetable Varieties for Home Gardens’; and a set of vegetable row markers. The cost per kit is only $7.
Also available at a reduced price are some Vegetable Garden Seed Kits from last season. At a price of only $3 for a kit of five seed packs plus complete planting instructions for each vegetable, these will sell quickly.
Whether you have a vegetable plot (large or small), a window-box, or a flower pot or two, you can Grow Healthy, A large pot can be used to grow a tomato plant, and in another pot you might choose to start some lettuce, cucumbers, or squash.
