I haven't been on the forum much, but I DO love Halloween.. maybe a little too much...
but anyways! I am hosting an online pumpkin carving contest on my facebook page. I grow and harvest heirloom seeds for a living, so 4 seed pack prizes will be awarded to the scariest, funniest, most unusual/creative, and best in show.
All that's required is that you upload a photo of your pumpkin by Oct. 31 to the event page. Each winner will get to choose 6 seed packets from my website. Just thought I'd let you all know since I bet most of you are going to be carving pumpkins anyways!
We do have some pretty awesome seeds to offer, and no one has entered the contest yet so your chances are good! You can paint, decorate or carve a pumpkin to enter. Prizes include any 6 packs of seeds you want, including our "Eyeball Plant" and "Garden Peach" tomato that is a fuzzy tomato! Along with Spider Flowers, Broom Corn to make your own Witch's Broom, Blackberry Lilies, Bloody Dock, and tons more flowers, veggies, and herbs. We specialize in tomatoes so we have TONS to choose from!
Pictured is one of my favorites, the eyeball plant! Chewing the leaves numbs your mouth. Spilanthol, a chemical with effective local anesthetic action has been identified in the plant. This action works surprisingly fast. If you have a toothache and rub a leaf on the gum area of the toothache, the area tingles and then goes numb within a few seconds.
