“Somebody STOP ME!”

In this post, I share the excitement of finding new seeds at the grocery store in February. You won’t believe how uncommon it was to find gardening products back in 2010 year-round in my neck of the woods

Somebody Stop Me

Finding seeds at the grocery store, garden center, big box stores, and even gas stations is very common today.  When I originally wrote this post in 2010 it was a treat to find seeds in various locations.  I made a game of asking for help when I would find them because my addition would kick in. I wanted to buy all the seeds I spotted.

Can you believe there was a time when you couldn’t find seeds to start a garden in the grocery store?  It amazes me how times have changed and you can find seeds everywhere.  We are truly lucky to have seeds and other gardening supplies available just about everywhere we go today.  When I originally wrote this post it was exciting to find seeds as early as February at a garden center.  Sharing the excitement and where I found the ‘loot’ ( aka seeds) on social media was the highlight of my day.  It was like a game to collect more seeds and share them on social.

  3. aloha bren,

    thanks for the mention on twitter….yeah- free seeds on your rose of sharon, i’m too lazy about planting seeds, so I just take alot of cuttings since those take off so much faster in my opinion and besides all my neighbors need to get free trimmings from their tropical plants constantly 🙂

  4. I don’t see the problem here. Stop you from what? Breathing? Eating? Living? I started tomato seeds about six weeks early this year. Despite having collected from last year’s crop, I seem to have bought a half dozen packs of seeds of other varieties of tomatoes. Is this wrong? Is it a problem? The people who aren’t obsessively starting from seeds need to be stopped… you go right ahead and plant more. Along the way, get a few more varieties to plant as well. And, over the summer, build a bigger greenhouse.
