Do you have a special someone to woo on this Valentine’s Day? Rather than the typical box of chocolates or bouquet of flowers, consider the gift that keeps on giving: heirloom seeds! In addition to providing us with wonderful flavors, stunning beauty and the genetic diversity needed for agricultural sustainability, their beautiful and unique names offer us a clever way to delight our Valentine gardeners. So let some of our heirloom seeds do the talking for you! Here are a few great examples cooked up by the crafty Seed Savers Exchange staff.
|First of all, make sure to tell that special someone just how much you lovage them ...|
|and how they’ll always be your Valentine Sunflower|
|or Black Valentine Bean|
|because you’ve been struck by Cupid’s Arrow|
|And what Valentine’s Day is complete without a Bouquet of flowers,|
|a Rose Tomato or China Rose Radish|
|A box of Sweet Chocolate|
|or some Candy|
|So prove to your Valentine you have a Heart of Gold|
|by treating your Garden Sunshine|
|like an Empress|
|with a Candlelight Picnic|
|while watching the Sunset|
|Finally, turn what was once your Flame|
|into your King or Queen|
|By giving precious Gem, or|
|dare we say a Diamond?|
