Heirloom Seeds: Growing in the desert sand

One of the most asked questions to us here at is:

Customer: "Will your Heirloom seeds grow in my area?"
Answer: "Yes!  The only requirements are:
  • Good soil
  • Groper sun light
  • Decent water
  • Sufficient fertilizer
  • Proper minerals
Now the proof is in the pudding.  We're going to show you exactly that our Heirloom Seeds will not only grow, but grown in sand!  That's right sand.  We'll take you step by step in the process.

Here some raised beds (nothing fancy) that we intend to plant some Heirloom Cucumbers and Heirloom Zucchini that we sell at: 

The above raised beds are full of desert sand and are in the month of October 2012.  We will be setting them up with the square foot technique and because we're not sure of the out come we will be planting more than one zucchini and/or cucumber in each square. 

After 3 weeks this is what we have thus far!

These plants germinated in about 7 days and did so effortlessly.  We'll keep you updated in about 2 weeks to see how they are doing.  We expect to have a nice full blooming plants within 90 days and guess what because they're Non-Hybrid seed we can save, harvest and plant their seeds for years to come.  Remember Hybrid seeds look good because they are genetically modified but you can not save their seeds and plant them in the garden as they will not grow.
