Chives

Cilantro/Coriander

Florence Fennel 
A very versatile herb. Its leaves, stalks, seeds, roots and plant base or 'apple' are all used. It is grown for its delicious tender 'apple' which can be eaten raw or blanched along with its stalk when young. Its leaves and seeds have an anise like flavor.
 
Sweet Marjoram 
Spicy and aromatic perennial, usually grown as an annual. Has square, branching stems and sometimes grows to the size of a small shrub. Likes to be sheltered in a warm, sunny spot. Protect from frost, and water sparingly.
 
Italian Oregano 
An herb that grows wild in central and southern Italy and the rest of the Mediterranean countries. Has a much stronger flavor dry than fresh but just as good. However use less dry oregano, as the flavor is more concentrated. Used on pizza and in sauces as well as vegetables. Very popular in Sicily where it is often added to preserved olives. Easily grown in a pot.
 
Parsley 
Strong, vigorous, upright growing plant with long, attractive stems for bunching. Leaves are heavily curled, dark green and maintain their color well into the season. Has good grow back for several harvests.
 
Rosemary 
Fragrant evergreen herb used with meats and stews. An easy to grow perennial that enhances everything from eggs to bread to vegetables and meats. This dependable and versatile herb needs little care or water to thrive.

Shrubby evergreen perennial with broad, velvety, dusty green leaves which have a woodsy camphor-like taste and tempting aroma. Traditionally used as a poultry stuffing and to season meat. Perennial.
 
Tarragon 
A hardy and vigorous plant, spreading at the roots and growing over a meter tall. Russian Tarragon actually prefers poor soils and happily tolerates drought and neglect. It is not as strongly aromatic and flavorsome as its French cousin, but it produces many more leaves from early spring onwards that are mild and good in salads and cooked food. Tasting somewhat like Anise, Tarragon is mildly sweet and adds excellent flavor to sauces, soups, vegetables and even desserts. The young stems in early spring can be cooked as an asparagus substitute. Grow indoors from seed and plant out in the summer. Spreading plant can be divided easily.
 
Thyme 
This indispensable kitchen herb is a small bushy perennial shrub that grows up to 15” tall and produces multiple stems with tiny silver-green aromatic leaves and white to pale purple flowers. The whole plant (leaves, stems and flowering tops) is used fresh or dried to flavor a wide variety of dishes.

CHOOSING YOUR METHOD
 
First you want to decide what you want to grow, micro-greens, baby greens, fully-grown greens, or all 3! This will determine how many seeds you want to plant per container. If you choose to grow all 3, you can either plant in 3 separate grow-systems or plant for 3 stages of harvest in 1 grow system.
 
PLANTING FOR MICRO-GREENS
If you are planting exclusively to grow micro-greens, with a 2-4 week harvest cycle, you will use the highest number seeds per square inch of soil space. Since micro-greens are harvested very small, crowding them is desired. If you are growing exclusively for micro-greens plant your seeds almost touching each other in an even layer.
 
HARVESTING MICROGREENS
When your micro-greens are 1-2 weeks old they are ready for harvest. Simply take a pair of scissors and cut patches to use in salads or other dishes. Don’t cut all the way down to the base because there are new sprouts ready to follow the ones you are cutting and you don’t want to cut their shoots! Continue allowing new shoots to come up and harvest when ready. Your micro-greens patches will last for many cuttings.
 
PLANTING FOR BABY GREENS
When planting for baby greens (2-6 week harvest cycle) you will want to use less seeds per square inch than with micro-greens. Leave about 2 seeds width between seeds in your planting medium. So imagine you put down 1 seed, then count 2 widths of that seed before you put down another seed. So the frequency of seeds is about half that of micro-greens.
 
HARVESTING BABY GREENS
In about 2-3 weeks your baby greens will be ready for harvest. Just use scissors and be careful not to cut into the greens you aren’t harvesting! DO cut all the way to the bottom of the baby green, making sure not to cut any new shoots coming up. 
 
PLANTING FOR FULLY-GROWN GREENS
If you are planting exclusively for fully-grown greens (6-12 week harvest cycle) you will want to plant only 4-8 seeds per container, depending on the container size. You will want the seeds about half an inch apart or more, depending on how large you want them to be when you harvest.
 
HARVESTING FULLY GROWN GREENS
Between 6-12 weeks your fully-grown greens will be ready for harvest. Use scissors or pruning shears and trim at the base of the stem. Leaving any stem sends energy to the partial stem instead of growing leaves new shoots. Harvest until your greens are used and plant again!
 
PLANTING FOR 3 STAGES OF HARVEST
You might decide to plant for 3 stages of harvest in 1 grow-system. If you choose to do this, plant seeds closely together as instructed for micro-greens. 
 
HARVESTING IN 3 STAGES
In 1-2 weeks you can start harvesting micro-greens. Use scissors and be careful not to cut new shoots by cutting half way up the stem. You can harvest the entire patch this way, leaving the “undergrowth” for baby greens. Wait another 1-3 weeks for your newer shoots to turn into baby greens and begin harvesting by carefully cutting at the base of each green. Leave every 3rd plant to grow into fully-grown greens in another few weeks! Harvest as needed.
 
GROWING INDOORS
If you are using your Mini-Farm Grow System indoors you will want to find a place close to a window with as much direct sunlight as possible This becomes more important in later stages of harvest. Micro-greens require a little sun, baby greens more sun, and fully-grown greens the most sun. Depending on the amount of sun you have available, you may need to add as much as 20% to your time-to-harvest growing indoors.

GROWING OUTDOORS

If you are growing exclusively outside, with good access to sun, you might shorten your time-to-harvest by as much as 20% from the instructions given. Baby greens and fully-grown greens benefit a great deal from direct sunlight, producing chlorophyll in greater quantities, more rapidly. If you are in a change of seasons and moving your Grow Systems outside during the day, be sure not to leave them out at night in danger of low temperatures. This can dramatically slow the growth of the delicate young seedlings or even kill them. 

GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR GROW SYSTEM

Planning is the key to harvesting the most food from your grow system. Work backwards from what you want your family to be eating and plan accordingly. Whether you are supplementing other home-grown foods, store-bought foods or even stored foods, the Mini-Farm Grow System with the SUPER-NUTRIENT Baby Greens Pack can supply most of the fresh-food nutrients your family needs to be healthy and happy. For an average family of four, having 4-8 grow systems running at various stages of growth provides continual harvest of high-nutrient greens for your table.

 
 
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
 
Q: How long will my seeds last?
A: Shelf life varies depending on the seed, but it ranges from 1-10 years dependent on the type of seed.  Herbs and Teas have a shelf life of 2-3 years, vegetables and fruits range from 5-7 years, and grains range from 7-10 years.   Store all seeds in a cool, dry, and dark location to maximize life. Do not freeze and do not expose to heat.

Q: Why should I use non-hybrid (open pollinated) rather than hybrid seeds?
A:
  • Better Nutrition – Commercial Produce lacks nutrition, research has shown.
  • Sustainable Gardening - Saving Seeds is only possible with open-pollinated seeds
  • Economic Security – In recessions and depressions, FOOD IS ECONOMIC SECURITY
  • Food Supply Independence – If food supplies are challenged, home gardening is freedom.
  • Crop Diversity – Participate in saving the original strains from extinction
  • Investment Hedge – Seeds are an excellent alternative investment to paper money, stocks and securities, even gold if the markets were to dive long-term.
 
Q: Why should I buy Heirloom Organics Non-Hybrid Seed Packs?
A:
  • Best price – Heirloom Organics Seed Pack are wholesale or bulk amounts of seed sold in complete, integrated packs.
  • Largest Amount – Our Seed Packs are HUGE! From the Vault to the Farm Pack, we provide bulk quantities in our packs.
  • Long-Term Storage Prepared – We use the VAULTtm method to extend seed life up to twice.
  • Use now AND store for later – Our Packs are double sealed so you can use seeds this year and store the rest without harming the extended shelf-life.
 
Q: Can I open my seeds, use some and re-seal them for storage?
A: Yes. They are double sealed so you can reseal them without harming the shelf life.
 
Q: Can I buy individual packets?
A: No, we ONLY SELL COMPLETE SETS. This is the only way we can provide wholesale amounts AND process them for long-term storage. Sorry, No individual Packets and no replacements.
 
Q: Should I freeze my seeds?
A: Only if you plan to keep them there. Freezing DOES help extend seed life as long as they are not removed often.
 
Q: How Much will shipping be?
A: UPS determines the shipping amount. The shipping cost will be added to your order once you place it.
 
Q: Do you ship to Europe/Asia?
A: We only ship to U.S. and Canada currently. Agricultural restrictions between countries make it very difficult to ship seeds.
 
Q: You DO ship to Canada?
A: Yes we do, however, Canada restricts some grains like wheat, barley and rye. We must provide replacements on some packs and some we cannot ship at all. Please see the list.
 
Q: What are Heirloom seeds?
A: Heirloom seeds are simply the oldest strains of open pollinated seeds. Varieties that were commonly grown during early periods of history. No one really agrees at what age a seed becomes 'heirloom'. Some say fifty years, others disagree. It is not necessary to have "heirloom" seeds for a survival or preparedness garden. Open pollinated seeds are what is required.
 
Q: What about variety replacements?
A: Due to ongoing seed shortages, seed varieties subject to change without notice. Replacements will be as close as possible and will be included in your order documentation.
 
Q: Do I get instructions or assistance?
A: Yes! When your product arrives, you will have access to the largest Organic Growing Guide on the internet for free, 24/7 information.
