I was at the Boston Public Market the other day and happened upon a vendor named Seedsheet. This innovative company, located in Middlebury, Vermont, alleviates consumers of the financial and physical burdens of traditional gardening practices. Say farewell to crop spoilage, insect infestations, and pesky weeds with what Seedsheet affectionately refers to as “a Garden-in-a-bag.” The “Garden-in-a-bag,” or Seedsheet arrives at customers’ doorsteps after online ordering, or it can be purchased at a brick-and-mortar location. It houses fabric inhibiting weed growth, organic and non-GMO seeds, soil, and the company’s take on a fertilizer without pesticides. Upon receipt of a Seedsheet, simply unroll, shake like you would a picnic blanket, and place atop a garden plot (or similar structure.) Water the Seedsheet, and reap its delicious benefits.
Seedsheets can be purchased in a variety of dimensions and they each include a unique selection of crops. After perusing the Seedsheet website, my favorite Seedsheet options are a three-way tie between the Tea Seedsheet, the Smoothie Seedsheet, and the Pizza Seedsheet. The Tea Seedsheet consists of Calendula, Chamomile, Lemon Balm, and Tulsi. Carrot, cucumber, kale, parsley, and spinach comprise the Smoothie Seedsheet. And the Pizza Seedsheet features arugula, basil, beets, chives, eggplant, Gold Nugget tomato, Green Zebra tomato, Jalapeño, Moskvich tomato, and pepper. Epic!
This ‘groundbreaking’ company reinvents horticulture by making gardening accessible to everyone, regardless of physical location and space availability.
Until Next Week…Plan Well, Pack Well, Live Well,
