Seed heads can range in size from approximately 2-12" depending on location, amount of sun, fertilization, and whether it is a primary vs. secondary flower head.

Because our seeds are separated by hand and not machine, expect to see some plant chaff mixed in with your seeds. This organic plant matter will break down naturally in the soil. All of our seeds and herbs are grown using organic, sustainable, and natural farming practices. No fertilizers or chemicals are ever used. Plants are only fed homemade compost, sun, rain, and limited Village water when necessary. Seeds are packaged in one of a kind handmade envelopes made from recycled paper, or in 100% recyclable kraft envelopes in order to reduce the amount of waste that surrounds our products.
Seeds are hand packed to ensure you receive only the healthiest seeds. Please familiarize yourself with growing conditions and instructions for your seeds before you plant them, as all seeds are different. Basic growing instructions can be found under each listing. Be sure to keep your seeds well watered after you plant them to ensure proper germination. Keep your seeds alive by storing them properly: keep your seeds in a dark, cool place (40-50 degrees F) with low-humidity. Never store seed in a warm, humid, or sunny spot. Stored properly, most seed will last for several years.
Our soap is made the old fashioned way in small batches here at the Kirk Estate, using the cold process method and a combination of natural and organic vegetable oils as well as organic herbs from our farmstead. All of our soap is free of dyes and animal byproducts and has a light natural scent.

NaOH, Sodium hydroxide, or lye is the base, or chemical compound, that causes saponification. Saponification is the natural reaction that transforms oils and fats into soap. Much like baking a cake will never have raw egg in it, sodium hydroxide will never be in a finished bar of soap. It has reacted with the oils and has been chemically changed to form soap and glycerin. True handmade soap can not be made without lye.
It is normal for handmade soap to sweat lightly when it can't breathe or when it is hot and humid. Once you receive your soap, unwrap it and place in a cool, dry place to allow any excess moisture to evaporate.
As required by the FDA, we do not make any claims regarding the cosmetic or health related properties of our soaps.
