Triscuit Home Farming Blog Tour

When I was growing up, we always had a vegetable garden. I mean, it's New Jersey:  who doesn't grow tomatoes? Now that I'm all grown up, I enjoy having a garden of my own. (I say this with a giggle because my husband and my son do a lot of the work for "my" garden!) There's nothing quite like biting into a just-picked homegrown tomato, still warm from the sun.

This year, Triscuit wants to encourage more of us to try home farming, to discover the joy of nurturing young plants and reaping the harvest.  To this end, they've created a Home Farming website that's just packed with information!  After answering just a few questions about my location, available space, and time commitment, I received personalized recommendations for my home garden.  The recommendations include a list of suggested vegetables and the proper planting date for each.

Here are some of the other features of the Home Farming website:
This website is a wonderful resource for gardeners, especially for those just getting started!  In addition, for a limited time, Triscuit is distributing basil and dill seeds in specially marked packages of Triscuit crackers.  (This is just a bonus for me:  I've always liked the whole-wheat flavor and crunch of Triscuit crackers, so I'd purchase them anyway.)  My package contained basil seeds and planting instructions; I think it's a perfect way to inspire people to give gardening a try.  Keep an eye out for the specially marked boxes in your store! 


Triscuit is proud to be working with Urban Farming to fund and help create 50 new community-based home farms throughout the United States.  Read more about the affiliation here.

So what are you waiting for?  Check out the Home Farming website, get your seeds, and get your hands in the soil!

Disclosure:  I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Triscuit and received the product necessary to facilitate my candid review. In addition, I received a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.

  2. Nice post. I sure could use some gardening help. I did quite a bit up north but Florida is a whole different thing with the blistering sun and all the crazy bugs!
