    Renee's Garden
    7389 West Zayante Road
    Felton, CA 95018

    Spring has sprung, and the hues of the season will soon be here. But have you decided what seeds to plant this year? Some people thrive on this prolific and pleasing liveliness as a source of food, while others achieve relaxation from this activity. So no matter whether you chose to sow vegetables, flowers or herbs, Renee Shepherd, owner of Renee's Garden, has it all. For those people who love nature but just don't have the room, she offer various types of seeds intended for use in container gardening, perfect for those living in an apartment with an empty corner of their balcony to fill or a sunny window sill.

    From the moment I searched the site of Renee's Garden, my attention was directed to their product for the finest quality and abundance in variety. The packaging of her seeds is an expression of dedication itself, illustrating attractive watercolor portraits of each classification. Every seed pack has one of the owner's mottoes inscribed on it, corresponding with what you're growing. With 18 years of experience under her belt, it's no surprise to find so many rare choices and so much expertise. Categorized in themed lists, you can find flowers to attract butterflies and humming birds, or just pick a new variety to experiment with. Each one is bound to be a winner, with twenty new selections for 2004. And there are so many gourmet vegetables to choose from. Have you ever heard of Sunshine Orange and Yellow carrot seeds both in one pack? Now you have. Or how about one of the custom blend lettuce mixes available exclusively from this company? There are also nine types of basil, or if oregano is your herb of choice, they have that also, along with a multitude of other spicy picks.

    For those of you who have never planted before but always wanted to give it a go, there is no reason to miss out on this satisfying hobby, with step-by-step seed starting advice on each package, and for even trickier questions (like what you should plant) a toll-free gardening hotline is available where knowledgeable staff are there for all your horticultural needs. It just goes to show you that even the brownest thumb can turn green with the information Renee provides, not to mention suggestions for both young and old on the website, too. They even offer a kidís seed collection. You don't have to be an experienced farmer to have a relationship with the earth; just some sensible advice by very patient green keepers. This year, my whole planting regimen will be based around Reneeís products.

    While you're at, don't forget to take note of her recipes and seasonal cooking ideas. And if you just can't get enough of those delicious dishes, Renee's two cookbooks can be purchased at a reasonable cost, 'Recipes From A Kitchen Garden' and 'More Recipes From A Kitchen Garden'.

    Bon appetite!
