Freebie Days: Free Tomato Seeds — Yippee!

Oh! I am so glad you dropped by today.

This is my favorite freebie. I have been waiting for this one.

Today is the beginning of Cambell’s “Help Grow Your Soup” campaign.

So, follow the link below. Grab a can of soup, fill in the stamped numbers from the can and get your free tomato seeds.

You can find growing and care instructions right there on the site.

While you’re there, click the little button to encourage Cambell’s to donate to FFA.

In this year of backed up seed orders, I would do this ASAP, because once they run out, they’re out. And you, dear reader, are left without free tomato seeds.

Hurry! Click the link below. Go. Go. Go!

Freebie Days — Free Sunflower Seeds

Okay, grab the kids and ship ’em outside to count pollinators, A.K.A. bees.

No interested kids? Do it yourself.

You can help the count bees and receive free sunflower seeds. If you garden, you know just how important the bees are. This great educational project is super simple and reward you with free sunflower seeds for your garden. Hey, and you are helping an important cause. Very cool!

If your an educator, you could nicely tie this in to a biology or math unit. Don’t forget that spiral pattern that the sunflower seeds make in the flower head are Fibonacci numbers.

What’s a Fibonacci number? One of the beautiful ways to find pure math in nature. Look it up.

Freebie Days –Living the Country Life

Good afternoon! What a lovely day. The bees are buzzing around the maple buds and the sap is flowing.

Join me for a cup of coffee and a muffin. I want to show you what came in the mail today.

It’s a magazine called “Living the Country Life: Ideas and Inspirations for Your Place in the Country.” The best part… it’s free.

Now I don’t mean free … like they send you one and then charge you for a year.

I mean free. Sign up. No credit card. I signed up last Spring and the thing still keeps coming free.

Here are April’s cover articles:

Cooking with herbs (the Mustard- Rosemary Grilled Lamb looks delicious! )

Get greener grass

Cool Mules

Your prettiest perennials

Similar in content to Grit or Hobby Farm Home just thinner.

It is published by the RFD TV channel, which may or may not be available through your satellite provider.

I love to thumb my way through a magazine now and then, especially when it arrives in my mailbox for free.

Come back tonight and we’ll chat about the envelope trick or tomorrow for another freebie and a tutorial on making your own soup stock.
