Sharing Your Seeds with Friends

A great gift to give your neighbors and friends are seeds from you own garden. Susann at
Share-Croppers is sending me some of her seed packets to share with my friends, and I had to let you know about them. There are many varieties of flower and vegetable seeds, and herb packets are soon to arrive. VERY reasonably priced at $2.99/packet of 12. I plan on ordering more for a plant sell I am going to.

This is not a compensated add. Many of you know I am all about buying local and supporting small businesses. Any time I see a product that I think is unique, I want to let my readers know. If you like Susann's product, let your friends also know about her site.
