Pea Seeds for Peace share

Pea Seeds for Peace

For many years now Peas have been secretly pulling nitrogen from the air and hiding it in the soil via little nodules on their roots. This is both out of kindness for their plant friends to use, and for a greater concern for our World.

Peas really are caring creatures, they'll soon have hidden away all of the nitrogen preventing humans from making bombs with it.

Peas are pacifists for peace. What's more peaceful than peas in a pod?

Growing Peas is the new emblem for peace. Wherever there isn't yet peace, grow peas.

Showy & tasty. Perfect for Guerrilla Gardening.

  • Peas take 60 days. Peace can take even less. Plant Peas in early spring. Sow peace everyday, forever.

Sunflower organic seed

The Happy Sunflower

There's an old folk story about a man who came to understand the quantum physics behind the impossibly perfect geometric balance of pattern in a sunflower's face. As the story goes, through his studies and sketches of the sacred geometry in the centre of the sunflower (that tornado of pattern), he was able to document the pattern of time -- and came to understand that time was running backwards. It had been running backwards the whole time; the world hadn't actually begun yet. So time and history was like this gigantic countdown to when the world would begin.

This was many many years ago, but the date he determined, the date when everything was going to begin, that moment where all of history is a shock-wave of, is suppose to be coming upon us very shortly.

So sow these sunflower seeds and see for yourself if you can understand what the heck he was talking about.


  • organically grown and very tall

NB: We think of sunflowers as ornaments of the sun, but in the night they must be straining their necks puzzling over the patterns within the unordinary order of the stars... For they've captured the chaos of the ages and converted it into order and harmony, in geometry with such accuracy. There is a knowing unraveling in their happy faces.

The Hobo Turnip share share

Say folks, are you looking for a trustworthy turnip? Introducing...

The Hobo Turnip

Since these turnips keep well while tramping around they became popular with hobos who could make many good meals with each one. Still today, tramps trot around with these turnips tied to sticks.

The Hobo Turnip has an impatient-sorta way of sitting on the soil rather than settling down into it. This seems to suggest a certain restlessness, like it is some rootless vagrant that moves along with the winds of opportunity. In a sense, these turnips have become like their hobo friends, never to put down roots.

  • Performs well in poor soil, even trainyards.
  • 65 Days (if it'll stick around that long)


If you're thinking about trying out hobohood then remember, the farmhelp hobos here at Piebird always leave with a smile and a good satchel of turnips tied to their sturdy sticks. Ask us about FarmStays or WWOOFing.

dancing lettuce

During the 1930's it used to be popular for the mail-order seed companies to include dance instructions on the backside of the lettuce seed packages.

Lettuce is responsible for most of the dance crazes that swept the nation.

Now-a-days the youth learn to dance from television. Some don't even learn at all...

Here at The Soggy Creek Seed Company we're trying to recover that tradition.That is why each seedpacket of lettuce sold includes a fold-out dance instruction sheet for a hip dance that will soon be the newest craze. Learn it and teach it to your friends.

Learn to Dance with Lettuce

The only Variety of Lettuce around that still Dances (and will Teach You How!)

  • Lettuce prefers full sun but does best in cooler weather because too much heat hinders growth.
  • It's best to dance in dim light and in a cool atmosphere because too much straightness hinders dance moves.

  • In the spring, sow lettuce as early as the soil can be worked, and successively, to ensure it matures before hot weather.
  • In the evening, start dancing as soon as the music begins, and dance continuously to ensure fun before the music ends.

  • Try sowing lettuce during the summer for a fall crop.
  • And try learning to dance during the summer for the fall harvest boogie.

  • Plant lettuce seeds 7 mm (1/4") deep, in rows 30 to 60 cm (12 to 24") apart. Later thin the lettuce to about 20 cm (8") apart in the row.
  • The heels of your dance shoes should be at least 7 mm (1/4") tall. Dance in rows several feet apart. Rock your baby to and fro.
