Hi, Megan here. Thank you so much for joining me today. So I want to kind of start this off with a little bit of “I am listening. I promise.” There have been videos in the past on my YouTube channel that a lot of your comments have been “we can’t hear you.” That’s the one thing you really need to get right on YouTube, right? So it was really not sad for me, but embarrassing that it just like you couldn’t hear me.
So I have taken the next step and invested in a better microphone. It’s the DJI mic set. There’s one here, and then I have another one here as backup. Hopefully this will cover this problem. And I’m going to actually take down those old videos and rerecord them for you because it overall seemed like from your comments, everything was helpful if you could hear it. If you couldn’t hear it, then it was a
bit of a problem. Fair enough, right? So if you see and you’re subscribed to the channel, which I really hope you would be, but if you’re subscribed to the channel and you see some videos coming back that are like, “didn’t she do that before?”
Or “Why is her hair color so different?” One, my hair color changes all the time. But two, it’s an old video that is being reedited, recut, and made sure that you can actually hear what I’m saying. So let’s get into why we’re here today. I’m going to do an unboxing of this super pack of seeds I got from Amazon. Now, I got this mostly because I’m not a prepper or I’m not someone that can I don’t know. I wanted to just kind of get a mishmash of seeds and see what I could grow. Unfortunately, I got it in July, so a lot of it is too late to plant. So I’m hopeful that things will stay okay until next year. Except I already gave it a shot for one of them and I’ll tell you about it later.
I’m going to be unboxing this guy and I guess not unboxing, as it’s clearly already opened and some water got on it, which is why the dovetailing is a little split. But I just want to show you what’s in it and let you know my opinion on if it’s worthwhile or not.
So let’s go down and let’s dive in and check. Okay, so this is the seed box, and as you can see, it comes with a set of gloves, which if you’ve ever bought anything off of Amazon, you already have this set of gloves. So I usually just trash these or keep them for backup. These ones do have, like, claws on them, but from reviews I’ve read, those claws are never really great. So just FYI, it only comes with one set of claws. So if you’re left handed, it’s not really helpful.
Okay. Now, like I said, I’ve already opened this and gone through it, but I wanted to show you what it looks like in here. So one, I really do like this box, even though I got water on it and you can see it’s swelled but it’s a nice seed storage. I might try and just use a rubber mallet and see if I can dovetail this all back in together. And it comes with this, which is very helpful for people like me who have ADHD and are super impulsive and think like, “oh, I just want to start growing some stuff!”
And it gives you a very simple idea of you probably shouldn’t grow it. Now, fun fact, the one crop that I did try to grow already, which I’ll show you in a second, is the only one that had like one week in August that it was still good to do. I think it was sweet corn. It’s in here somewhere, but.
Want to let you see. It has everything broken up pretty well, and then it has the little guide here. So I find this to be really helpful, especially for new gardeners or people who just want a quick reference. I like that it lives right in here very easily, and you don’t have to really worry about anything like that.
So here are all the seeds. Now, they are not, to my understanding, really organized in any sort of way. I can’t really tell. Can you see? Some of them are even upside down and some of them aren’t. So you’re really going to have to go through these in the beginning and organize them however you want. If you want to do it alphabetically or by the type of crop, whatever, it’s up to you. But I already, as you can see, opened up the corn and I had to write it down so that I remembered which one it was.
But we’re going to go and show you what those look like. But let me just show you since these are already open.
Apparently this is going to be a whole thing right now. Come on. There you go.
You can see. So these are legit. They’re not just strange crop or strange seeds from China that God knows what you get. So I would probably recommend this if you are a new gardener or just want somebody who appreciates bulk, I’d recommend giving it a shot. So let’s now go and show you my one crop that I gave a shot.
Definitely don’t need to be that close to my face.
Okay, so we are going outside in my yard and going to show you.
The one crop that I have started.
To grow, even though it’s late in season.
That is the corn.
As of the filming, it is mid September, and I planted these the first week of August. So do I expect to get crops? I don’t know.
But they have germinated. And if you’re curious why there’s nothing over here, it’s because the squirrels came in and dug out a bunch of soil in my planter.
So that’s why.
But so far, the five seeds I planted, two are growing and we might.
Be able to get a crop.
I doubt it, but it’s good to see that they are at least viable.
So, yeah, there you have it. Like I said, the corn seems to be coming in ish. We’ll see how it goes. I don’t know if I’m going to get anything out of it this year since I planted it so late, but you know, what the hell, give it a shot, see how it goes.
Now, if you like this video, could you do me a favor? Could you hit the like button? It lets YouTube know that I’m doing a good job and will help spread it out to more
people. And if you want to find out more fun plant facts or watch me just go further and further into plant debt, please subscribe to the channel because I release new content all the time and would love to help you also become a plant hoarder.
Now, my next video, I’m going to show you another unboxing, and it is going to be one that is a plant destroyer. I need it. It needs to happen. So we’re going to go into that next time. But in the meantime, if you like this, subscribe because you will want
to see this new power tool that I got.
But one thing actually, if you can, leave a comment and let me know if you have found a good packet of seeds and what you’ve been growing out of the seeds, I’d love to know. I’d love to know if there are really cool other kits out there besides this one that people are into. So, yeah, leave a comment and let me know if you have found any other seed packs that you’re really into. I’d love to see that. See you
