I also heard that you shouldn't start your seeds until 4 weeks before planting to avoid legginess. Or so Martha Stewart's gardening expert said. Knowing that I won't be planting fragile plants until Memorial Day I've decided that I'll be starting my seeds indoors in mid to late April.
- Harris Lettuce Blend (a blend of Cimmaron, Red Salad Bowl, Tango, Slobolt, Green Salad Bowl and Royal Oakleaf)
- Bush Blue Lake Beans
- Colored Sweet Pepper Seed Blend (Lady Bell ~green to red, Early Sensation ~green to yellow, Valencia ~green to orange, Purple Beauty ~green to purple, and Flamingo ~light yellow to blush red to red. The kids will love all those colors!)
- Regal Cucumber
- Nantindo Carrots (pelleted~last year I had a horrible time with overcrowding)
- Revelation Corn (early variety) & Renaissance Corn (late variety)
- Waltham Butternut (why mess with a classic?)
- Zuchini Elite
- Howden Pumpkins
- Charlotte Radishes (Can't wait to make more radish relish! Mmmm...)
As you can see there is no tomaotes. I understand almost every good gardener loves growing tomato. But hubby and I are not tomato fans. We've discussed growing them to make our own salsa, and spaghetti sauce but... not this year.
Until I can get my seeds started I've got plenty to do. Garden Clean-Up and Additions. Oooh what fun.
