For a couple bucks you can buy seeds sols as SPICE and get many more seeds than you can at the local nurdery or hardware store as seed packets.
So I tried it.
I'm in zone 6B and the yellow mustard isn't probably the same species as the mustard greens I from California I buy in bundles as produce as groceries.
The leaves are smaller but it grows okay here and the "eat" just like the big ones.
Cilantro is hard to grow here because the weather tends to go from too colod to too hot all of a sudden in mid spring, but I got a decent crop last year.
The Sweet basil sold in Asian Gricers as a spice is used in a fruit drink(based on the packaging) and it's not the same as italian sweet basil.
It's sweeter, more like Holy Basil(Tulsi) smaller leaves.
But here's what makes it fun:
I don't like planting little seeds 1/8" deep, or 1/4" deep.
What i do instead is weed my Hugelhulture berms in the late fall, and bang the roots our of big weeds that come up with dirt.
That makes lots of loose soill.
So I just toss these Cheap seeds out like grass seed, let the rain bury them.
Why pay $1.99 for 150 seeds when you can get 10,000 seeds for he same price?
Crap I posted this in the wrong subforum, how do I fix that?

Worst case, I can reuse the glass containers!
