I've been taking care of some babies.
They are just about ready to head off into the real world.
I took these pics just last week and now all of the seeds have sprouted and the plants have doubled in size.
I'll be moving them out to the garage to live under the grow lights.
I reuse the seed starter trays every year, filling them with a non-soil seed starter. I keep them up on the third floor window seat because it is toasty warm up there in the sunshine.
This year I planted all heirloom seeds that I purchased from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds (www.rareseeds.com)
Their catalog is so beautiful that I almost drool while reading it. I picked veggies that will grow well in our hot, humid Summer.
This year I'm growing:
Onion: Red Creole
Cucumber: Dib Daub
Tomato: Big Month
Tomato: Marglobe Supreme
Pepper: Emerald Giant
I'm also growing greenbeans, sugar snap peas, potatoes, leeks, and green onions that I got from a local garden center. In addition, I'll grown parsley, basil, lettuce, and garlic.
If we're lucky, we'll also have pumpkins and cherry tomatoes that reseed themselves every year along with our perennial herbs that stay in the garden all year long like rosemary, bay, sage, lavender, thyme, oregano, and chives.
Are you putting in a garden this year? If so, what are you planting? Where do you get your seeds from ?T
