My shopping experience with Pinetree is always excellent which is a major factor in my singing its praises to other gardeners as well.

Kyoto Mizuna

Great as always. The Mizuna sprouted and grew and has been shared with two friends. The Tomatoes started to bud but I nipped that as the weather is not yet ready for planting outside. Hope you are all well. I am too old and Ornery to get sick!!!!!

tasty grens

I love these greens! They grow pretty well in our dry, hot summers and clay soil. They do die out by mid summer hen it hits the upper ops. Good flavor and they add texture to salads. I have purchased these seeds twice now.

Mizuna Greens

Mizuna is one of the greens in your lettuce mix that germinated and grew in our dry, hot climate, so I hope I will also get good results in a single patch. It has a mild taste and an airy texture that I like adding to my salads.
