Honoring our Earth Day tradition, this year we planted some High Mowing Organic Seeds to transplant to my father-in-law’s farm in a few weeks. I was going to try and do a raised bed since we have clay for a back yard, but we have some pretty bad squirrels and I’m scared they may eat our veggies. I did plant a tomato plant in a pot on our porch and am hoping for the best! So we will see for next year.
Stonyfield Yo Getters got an awesome seed package from High Mowing Organic Seeds and I fell in love with their catalog! I can’t wait to order some herbs and flowers. I am in love with their variety of organic vegetables! Check out how many varieties there are for each veggie!
- Brussels Sprouts
- Salad Mixes
- Shoots & Sprouts
- Squash – Summer
- Squash – Winter

Another fun Earth Day activity we did was put up a nest box for Brown-headed Nuthatch birds.
The birds are losing their homes due to urbanization and deforestation. Audubon NC hopes to put up 10,000 Brown-headed Nuthatch homes in 2015. I’ve seen some in our backyard, so I hope they decide to stick around and build a nest.
