You know, you might want to post this over in the Edibles and Preserving Forum. Might very well get better results over there. Angel

Corey Anne, I'm sending you a Tree-mail, but wanted to post here as well. Urban farming is a passion for me, and it sounds like you have a great cause.

I don't know what all I have offhand since I'm still organizing from a big trade this winter, but the two links in my signature have my seed lists in them - let me know if you see something in particular that you'd like to grow and I can check if I still have it. Otherwise, I'll make up a pack of things I have that are tasty and relatively easy to grow in Michigan.

These guys are packed up, and will hopefully hit the post office tomorrow!

I know the labels aren't all legible - you'll get some surprises. I was able to get at least something from all the categories you listed except non-melon fruit, and I threw in a few herbs and companion plants as well.

I'd love to hear an update on how they do for you, if you have a chance to check back when the growing season is underway!
