In honor of the concept of staying put, Raja and I are offering a free gift to our readers of a few seeds of either Heavenly Blue Morning Glories or Scarlet Runner Beans. All you have to do is dig, plant, water and wait. If you have a garden, plant them there. If you have a balcony or a patio, get a sizable pot, fill it with dirt and plant away. If you don’t have either, just find a sunny spot that needs beautification, work up a patch of dirt, plant and walk away. (It would help if your spot has something for the vine to climb up, but a vine can trail along the ground too.)
If you want some of Raja’s free magic seeds, all you have to do is send your seed request to us with your mailing address. While we can’t guarantee which you’ll get… Scarlet Runners or Morning Glories… we can pretty much promise that each variety will travel at least 6 feet along, blooming all the way. Morning Glories are not edible, but the young beans of Scarlet Runner Beans are most certainly edible… and if you let a few pods grow big, you’ll harvest more seeds from the dry pods in fall. (Same thing for the dry pods of the Morning Glories in fall.)
Send your snail mail address to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. And no worries, as you can see, Raja and I have nothing to sell and we’re independent spirits, so we don’t have any relationships with commercial mailing lists or merchandise spammers. We just have two little heaps of seeds we want to share around the world while supplies last. If you live in another country, we’ll be happy to send you seeds, but we cannot guarantee customs… although our guess is that they’ll arrive. So let us know while the sun shines on your spring, because our paws are itching to be off again.
