I recently read that you can buy fruit and veggie seeds with them? I think that's brilliant!

I didn't know that. I wonder how many people actually do.

I just found this out and will be doing so next month to start up a garden. I've been wanting a renewable produce source!!

Yes, you can use food stamps to buy seeds and or young plants as long as they are food plants- no pansies or roses :)

I didnt know that. Then again I never lived anywhere I could plant the seeds anyway so it wouldnt have done me any good

 I agree brilliant. they can get even more food for the money.  its cheaper to grow it than buy it and most people would do it. I know if I got food stamps I sure would take advantage of it. even though I already have my seeds bought for this year and enough to last me the next 2 yrs probably. I am waiting for it to start taking off.

I would definitely do it if I had a house. I want a garden so bad. My mom has one. I get food from her garden all the time.
