The Power of Tiny Things

Life is the story of the power of tiny things. Each of us started as tiny, infinitesimal specs. And yet we are now giants, roaming the earth, millions of times larger than when we first started. It’s the same with beans. Small, beautiful seeds, beans rise out of the earth, pushing aside heavy dirt and brush as they make their ascent toward the sun. They are among the champions of growth and energy, growing taller every day.

With these tiny arugula seeds, I hold in my palm the makings of a hundred salads. There is enough energy in each seed to create an entire salad. With these seeds and just five weeks or so, and I can invite a small army of friends over for a small feast.

Want to be amazed? Grow your own food … even if you just have space for a few pots on a window sill.
