My chickens got into them ughhhh but I will be back for more seeds
Fantastic, I struggled getting seeds to actually grow and thrive here in Central Florida, I actually have success now using your seeds. My herbs are doing great too, covered them for the freeze, beautiful and still alive (through Jan and Feb) I Stopped buying seeds from big stores (my first mistake I made as a gardener) Local is the way to go for sure!
