Giveaway #3 - A #10 Can of Seeds! (**Giveaway now closed**)

(*This giveaway is closed*)


Today's giveaway is sponsored by Heather from Shelf Reliance! Heather is offering a #10 can of garden vegetable seeds. We've never given away something like this on the blog, so we're excited!


Garden seeds might seem like an unconventional "food storage" item, but food storage is all about self reliance, right? I love the idea of being able to buy a whole can of seeds to store with the rest of my food storage. I also love the idea that I could potentially have fresh veggies available to me even if we were living off our food storage (during the right season, of course).


This #10 can contains seeds for beans, beets, cabbage, carrots, corn, cucumber, lettuce, onions, peas, peppers, radishes, spinach, summer squash, winter squash, and tomatoes. Also included is a "how-to" guide for planting and growing your garden. Even if you don't have a yard for gardening, some of these plants do really well in porch containers!


To enter this giveaway, leave a comment on this post telling us:


What do you love most about Fall? (or, if you live in a more tropical climate, what do you miss most about Fall, assuming you have experienced it before!)


One comment per person, please. Giveaway will close tomorrow morning at 8 a.m. EDT and a winner will be announced shortly thereafter.


Feel free to check out Heather's Shelf Reliance store for more products! These cans of veggie seeds would make great Christmas gifts, for yourself or others! (In fact, Heather did her own review of this product here)


Heather also has a blog called Cooking With My Food Storage that you should check out. She's currently giving away a Harvest Shelf, so you won't want to miss that!

What I love most about fall is actually being able to enjoy the outdoors again! We're in Florida and the heat and humidity is so intense that we spend most of the summer inside with the a/c on and the curtains shut.

I love the first day when it's cool enough to open the windows and enjoy the fresh air.

Lyndee Lloyd said...

I love being able to go outside with out it being to hot the temperature is perfect and we can play all day!

Courtney said...

I love when the weather cools down just enough to make the mosquitos go away so I can enjoy being outside without being eaten alive!

Brooke said...

I love the beautiful fall foliage! The trees where I live are simply amazing!!!

Granny Jacque said...

I love the cooler air so that all living things can recuperate from the heat of summer. And I love the harvest season!

I love spending time outdoors with the beautiful changing colors, the fresh smell of Fall, the crunch of leaves under my feet! I love that Winter is coming!

Fellars Family said...

I love the beautiful fall colors.

Mom Allen said...

I live in Arizona where fall is but a fleeting minute and can only be found by seeking it out in the mountains. I love, love, love the colors of fall and would love to experience the pure joy of leaves changing in mass.

Heidi said...

I love fall bc the cooler weather is such a relief after the 115degree summer weather! I love being able to sleep with the windows open and be cuddled up in a blanket all night!

Sarah said...

I love cooking soup in the crockpot and making my house smell so good. Hanging outside with my kids without melting is also a bonus of autumn.

Destiny said...

I love the cooler weather and the crispness of the air.

Pearl said...

I love the slight chill in the air, being able to enjoy the cold before it gets super duper cold!

ddu said...

I wait all year for October, for crisp sunny days and snuggly sweaters. It's the ideal season to prepare long, slow braises, stews and soups... hearty breads and cobblers... roasted root veggies. Welcome fall!

The Daily Prepper said...

Apples, winter squash, cool weather and beautiful colors! Attending our local Harvest Festival and parade. Cool mornings and evenings, perfect for gathering around our chiminea with friends and family. Fall is one of my MOST favorite times of the year!

The cooler weather, hot tea and cooking with pumpkin!

Mrs. Mordecai said...

Fall is my favorite season! My favorite part is that the weather cools down enough that I can make soup again. Yum.

Lynn said...

Sweaters. Fashion boots.

Apple spiced cider, anything pumpkin and creamy soups. ; D

Melarie Wheat said...

Making pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and the cool crisp air.

Andrea Gunnell said...

I live in AZ where it is over 100 degrees all summer long. I am SO looking forward to some cooler weather! Too bad this week is still looking to be in the 100's!

Ryan Winderweedle said...

I enjoy the cooler weather and relief from the summer heat.

Tesiah said...

It's shallow, but I love the clothing that Fall allows you to wear. Boots, cute peacoats, scarves, hats...

Audra said...

I love the crisp fresh air! (And no more weeding the garden)

Gretta said...

Cooler weather!!!

lov2snobrd said...

I love that there is snow on the way!

jani said...

Mmmm, the comfort food that comes along with fall... I avoid using my oven as much as possible during the summer, and many of my favorite comfort foods call for the oven....

Trisa Tidwell said...

What do I love most about Fall? Being in Texas, fall signifies the end to the intense heat. I especially love October, when the overnight temperature finally dips into the 40's!

Trina said...

I love Thanksgiving! It's a wonderful holiday where we focus on what we have instead of what we want. Hanging around with family and friends and talking about how good life is, I love it :)

Becky L. said...

I love the cooler weather and that it gets darker earlier.

Morgan said...

I love going to the pumpkin patch with my little family. It's a tradition we all look forward to!

I love the perfect temperatures and fall colors everywhere!

Lynette said...

I love the fall colors, cooler weather and wearing a cozy sweatshirt.

Grace said...

Gee, it's hard to pick just one favorite. I love so many things about fall. The clothes, the way the bed feels at night, not being sweaty and uncomfortable all of the time, chili, apple pie. I guess my very favorite is the way the air smells and feels, crisp and clean, even in my smog-filled Atlanta suburb.

Sariah said...

I would have to say the cooler temperatures, the smells that come with the baking that gets done and the holidays.

Josh and Nikki said...

I love the fall smells....pumpkin, apple, cinnamon, etc. I always have a candle lit! :)

megan said...

I love the colors and the temperature!!

Katie Adams said...

My favorite thing about fall is the beautiful changing colors of the trees and all the yummy fresh produce. I love canning and feeling accomplished as I add to my food storage.

Cassi : ) said...

Having everything laced with pumpkin! And the crisp air - cool, but not cold!

Jake and Sheena Halverstadt said...

I love being able to wear a sweatshirt while sitting next to a bonfire.

Tom/Tabitha said...

I love the cooler weather and fall colors.

Pumpkins!!! Can I just say.... I love cooking with pumpkin. All the breads and smells are just so amazing.

Genny said...

Fall doesn't exist here in the desert. We celebrated the arrival of Fall yesterday with 104 degree weather. I dearly miss watching the leaves change color and that crisp, fresh feeling in the air.

Bethany said...

I love many, many things about fall. It's my favorite season! But this year, I'm just loving that we've moved back to a place that has fall. I've missed the colors terribly.

Dan and Melissa said...

The leaves changing colors, the cooler temperatures, and of course Halloween!

grammyscraps said...

My very favorite things about Fall are the colors and that crisp, fresh smell in the air. Love it!!

The Holdaway's said...

I love the changing colors in the leaves and the piles to leaves to play in!

Cortney said...

Definitely the changing colors, crisp and crunchy leave, the chopping of wood, the starting of the wood-burning stove and NO SWEATING! :)

Vanessa said...

apples, pears and timing a fall leaves photos shoot just right. Also, it seems like fall is becoming a tome for us to do projects around the house that we've out off while enjoying the summer. I like getting things done.

Kristine said...

I love the cooler weather, but especially this year, when it has been so incredibly hot all summer long!

The Harried Homemaker said...

I love everything - the cooler temps, football, the leaves turning color.

Amanda Morris said...

The cool weather, the smell in the air, the leaves changing color, and the food (apples, hardy stews/soups, roasts). Fall is with out a doubt my favorite season!

Beth said...

I grew up in Southern Cal, where there was not a real sense of autumn. Moving to the Pacific Northwest, I am gobsmacked (to quote my sweetheart) by the colors, the change in the slant of the sunlight, the crisp feeling in the air. I love it. My favorite season, discovered after I turned forty. I hope life holds a few more incredible surprises for me. :)

APPLES! I love apples! I don't believe that I'm saying this after growing up on an apple orchard, but I love apples and making applesauce, etc.

Lisa said...

cooler weather & hunting season

Kelly V said...

I love to see God's splendor displayed in the gorgeous colors that He paints our world. I enjoy the cooler temps, which are perfect for sitting around a fire making s'mores. I also love the smell of the crisp fall air and the the taste of the crisp sweet-tart apples.

Coordination Queen said...

I love the cooler weather, the crispness that is in the air, wearing jackets, and baking.

Mrs. Pear said...

I love the cooler nights, the warmer quilts we pull out, and I especially love CANNING! We did cherries early in the summer, but now is the rush of peaches, tomatoes, and pears! Next up is apples. It makes me so happy to see those joy filled jars lining up in the pantry!

Andrea :) said...

What I love most about fall is making pumpkin chocolate chip cookies with my daughter. :)

kdonat said...

I miss the transition of crispness in the air between summer and fall. On the Gulf coast of FL fall seems to last only a day or two and the maple leaves won't change color until Jan when the temps really drop.

Darla said...

I love baking pumpkin pies, leaves changing in the East, leaf piles raked up high, and the smell of fall. You know the one, where you wake up and just know its fall outside, LOVE IT!

Caaleros said...

The smell of the air and the changing of the leaves.

Katie said...

I love being able to enjoy the outdoors again.. and baking.

Bernie said...

And end to the extreme summer heat, pumpkins, apples, baking and soup weather!

Julie Marie said...

I love the cooler weather, especially the nights, and the earlier sunset helps get the kids to bed earlier :)

Morgan said...

I love the cool weather, colors, and especially the food!!!

Jade said...

I love all of the baking! Anything pumpkin flavored...and I'm in heaven!

I love sweaters and carmel apples. Popcorn balls and halloween costumes.

Cool mornings.

Fire said...

The coolness it brings and all the changing colors.

LaurieNguyen said...

I love that I can leave my windows open at night when I sleep.

Camille said...

The colors!! And the crisp in the air....and pumpkins....and apples....and I could go on and on....Fall is my MOST favorite season of the year!

Gerry said...

With every day, and from both sides of my intelligence, the moral and the intellectual, I thus drew steadily nearer to the truth, summer is at it's end, the winter garden must be in!

Sandy said...

I love fresh tomatoes off the vine, and Halloween!!!

Dorothy T said...

The things I love about Fall, the changing colors, the Holidays are almost here, homemade pumpkin pies.

Anonymous said...

Fall is a favorite time for me. Due to allergies, pollen is not as bad as spring so I can enjoy the cool weather.

Betty Steward said...

Fall in south central Texas is a blessed relief from un-relenting heat of the summer. Fall is the time when I can safely plant in my little garden, and know that my veggies won't be cooked on the vine. Fall means that the holidays are close behind, and that soon, I'll see family that I may not have seen since last year.

Elaine said...

This is my first Fall to live in an area without the beautiful turning of the leaves. I miss the crunch of walking on fallen leaves also. It is predicted to be 101 degrees today and we are going to swim this morning. It just does not seem right.

Me said...

The thing I love most about the fall is finally being done with the garden chores...pulling up that last tomato plant is quite rewarding :)

Stephanie L. said...

Fall is a magical time of year and my favorite season. I love the smell of fall, the rainbow of colors and the crisp air that's not too cold yet. And for me, it's the time when I celebrate the anniversary of being married to the man of my dreams.

Anonymous said...

I love Fall, after over 35 days of temps over 110 this summer and the rest pretty hot too, it is now time to go out and garden again. Would love to use those seeds.
Hugs, Nancy Hill

Family Gal said...

I hate to see summer come to an end, but the abundance of the fall harvest always makes me grateful. I love seeing the wonderful fall leaves, and the variety of color in the garden produce. I don't mind a football game or two, and I love laying on the grass in the fall and watching the clouds...the sun is much gentler in the fall.
