Sometimes I have a hard time deciding if something is worth a blog post when a picture is really all you need, but I know lots of people like to see links for the exact things used in said pictures, so here we are with a helpful little blog post to make your own seed packet valentines! This idea came to me one morning on my way to school as I was contemplating valentine options along with my deeply rooted desire for a giant vegetable garden. The two came together as if fireworks were going off in my brain. The pun options! The seed packet options! I mean, really, what could be more delightful than getting this as a valentine? I decided to give these to friends and family, and the boys are making crayon hearts to give to their classmates. They’ve been tucked away in little kraft paper envelopes and are traveling across the states to be opened and smiled over by Monday. And just in time for seed starting season for my northern friends.
- You’re the real dill.
- I’m wild about you, valentine.
- I love you from my head tomatoes.
- Lettuce be friends forever.
- Will you be my valentine even though you’re chamomiles away?
- It’s about thyme I told you how much I love you.
- Where have you bean all my life?
- It’s radish-ulous how much I love you.
- I think you’re the sweetest pea in the world.
- You put a pep in my step.
- You are as cool as a cucumber.
- I carrot live without you, valentine.
- We were mint to be.
- I think you’re arugula friend to have around.

And if you need another idea – we’re making these for the boys’ valentines for school, but word to the wise – soak the crayons in warm soapy water for 15 minutes and the paper practically falls off.
