Free Organic Lettuce Seeds

Any time I've ever tried to start a garden, I've either A) forgotten about it, B) forgotten about it, or C) What was I talking about again? That won't stop me from requesting these free organic lettuce seeds though!

I really shouldn't even bother though, I'm about as nourishing as the surface of Pluto. I'm pretty sure there's a clause buried in Obama's recent stimulus plan about me being banned from ever having children.

Please note, in order to request these free seeds, you need to promise to donate some of the produce you grow to your local food bank. Whether or not they'll actually want or accept what I manage to grow is another story.

  1. Unfortunately there is no food pantry within 30 miles of my home so no free seeds for us. We live in a food desert. The nearest grocery store is 22 miles over some rough country roads. It’s a once a month trip for groceries or order on line.

  2. cashd00d, – Go to the website for Earthbound Farms and they will show you how to grow the seeds indoors in their plastic containers. But you can use other containers. Just make sure there is good drainage, and that you don’t bury the seeds while watering. Lettuce seeds need the warmth of the sun to sprout, so just barely cover them with potting soil when you plant them. If you use a spray bottle to water them with like the website says (good idea), you might have to spray the soil several times a few minutes apart initially since some peat based mixes are slow to absorb water. Good luck!

  3. I am looking forward to this. I have a bell pepper plant in a potand a blueberry plant in a pot. I have harvested 3 peppers so far and there are two more growing now. I have the pepper plant indoors to protect it from the cold. I open the blinds a little so that sunlight can get it. I just started soaking my used teabags in hotwater, cooling it, then watering the plants. I am guessing this will give them extra nutrients. I sprinkle cinnamon on the pepper plant leaves to keep away the ants.

  4. I live in an apartment. I have a question for any of your gardeners out there: will these grow ok in a planter box in my kitchen? Does lettuce need direct sunlight?

    • Yes. Lettuce does need direct sunlight. And if you're planing it in a container that is by a window, you'll want to rotate it every day. Lettuce grows toward the light, and in a normal situation, it would grow straight. But, if you have it by a window it would grow towards the window, because of the light.
