Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Home Farming Movement with Triscuit

I love Triscuits.

For the last 6 years we've mostly purchased Club, Ritz and Wheat Thins for the kids. Every couple months I'll get something just for me. I'm a big cheese and cracker fan and the kids (and Hubster) never like the cheese I get. This is on purpose. I get them plenty of the cheeses they like.

A couple weeks ago I decided to treat myself to some Triscuits. I was sure the box would be around when I was in the mood. The mood usually hits around 10pm when I'm catching up on TV or blog walking while sipping on a glass of wine. I was W.R.O.N.G. The kids love these too. Crap. "I'll have to get more", I thought.

Then I was contacted by Mom Central to see if I wanted to participate in a blog Tour for Triscuit. "Hell Yeah", I said. More Triscuits were on the way. That's some cool Karma right there.

These Triscuits are special.

Triscuits has partnered up with to help grow the Home Farming Movement. Over 4 million boxes of Triscuits have been specifically labeled for this movement and either basil or dill seeds have been added to allow consumers to start (or add to) their own home gardens. We got Basil. I'm so excited to add these seeds to my herb garden, currently consisting of chives and cilantro. There's nothing better than fresh herbs added to ordinary meals to flavor them up.

Sowing the seeds of community-based home farms
Urban Farming is a non-profit organization. They have a mission to create an abundance of food for people in need by planting farms on unused land and space while increasing diversity, educating youth, adults and seniors and providing an environmentally sustainable system to uplift communities. Their funding of community-based home farms is core to the continued growth of The Home Farming Movement in urban areas. Urban Farming welcomes everyone to get involved. Volunteering at a farm or donating food is just two ways that you can help.

I'm going to look for more specially marked boxes of Triscuits to get some more seeds. We'll post pictures after they start sprouting. Won't you join in and start or ad to your own herb garden?

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Triscuit and received the product necessary to facilitate my candid review. In addition, I received a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
