"Tell us Your Garden Stories" Customer Submission from Debbie McLellan

"Just sharing my stories about Vesey's and the seeds I purchased this year.  So I never have luck with cucumbers in my garden, I'll get a few a week, but sometimes the plants just don't produce a lot.  I decided to purchase the Salt and Pepper cucumber seeds last December with little expectation.

We started them inside in little pots, and soon had to transfer them to bigger pots.  We have a wonderful large window in our living room and the plants thrived.

I finally got to plant them outside and by June 28th, I had beautiful cucumbers to pick.  I also had some burpless cucumbers and they did extremely well too.

I can't express how happy I was to collect so many cucumbers and keep going until early October.  I had not planned on pickling any, so our neighbors, coworkers and family got to enjoy so many cucumbers this year also.

I would recommend this salt and pepper seed to anyone who even thinks about it, don't hesitate.  The tender seeds make it very enjoyable eating simply sliced and plain, or dressing it up however people want to do it.

Thank you Vesey's!"

"We moved in to this new place in 2013, I went mad all winter not being able to garden, so I ordered a LOT of gardening stuff, we converted a horse pasture to a mosaic of veggie gardens, you will see the before and after shots and some of the bounty.

All of the seed was purchased from Vessey’s with the exception of the seed potatoes, including the greenhouse.  We were so impressed with our garden this season except that Hurricane Arthur brought a blight with it, and powdery mildew and potatoe/cucumber beetles were thick we fended off what we could!"

"Our gardens are our pride and joy. We buy only Veseys seeds and have for 50 yrs. These are some of the pics of our gardens I will send you more. We have the name of all our veggies purchased from Veseys. We keep a garden report every year of the veggies and fruit that grown in our zone the best. We also grow our own strawberries, grapes, etc.

All veggie garden seeds are from Veseys. Keep up the good work and we will continue to plant with pride. Thank you Veseys."
