Time to Buy the Garden Seeds

Time to Buy the Garden Seeds!

It’s time to stop thinking about the spring garden and buy those seeds. They won’t plant themselves!  Here is our tentative plan for the 2018 growing season.

I will Care More About the Garden

I have more free time this year, and determined to have a great garden. Many times, life gets in the way and the garden starts to get neglected. In spite of this we usually have a good haul. But I am going to pay more attention, and be more organized this year. This is a garden for two people. It’s pretty small, but it’s just us!

Seeds to Start

Radishes

Zuchinni Squash

Yellow Squash

Butternut Squash

Delicata Squash

Big Mama Hybrid tomato

Biker Billy Jalapenos from seed

Tigger Asian Melon-I’ve grown melons successfully before, but this will be a new variety

Green Beans

Herbs

Basil

Cilantro

Marjoram

Note: We have rosemary, thyme, mint, oregano growing in pots year round

Plants to Buy Local

These plants are ones that  I only want one plant of. It does’t behoove yourself to buy a pack of seeds when you only want one plant. These plants are kind of generic, where it doesn’t matter what the variety is.

Beefsteak Tomato

Green/Red Pepper Plant

Grape or Cherry Tomato

Yellow or low acid tomato

New to Me

These will be new to me to grow:

Turnip Greens 

Futtsu Black Early Winter Squash

Tigger Asian Melon-this looked like a cool melon to grow

Sprouts-We are going to try three different types of sprouts. This was spurred by our local grocery stories (all 3 of them) no longer spouting the generic Asian “bean sprouts” can.  If you can’t beat ’em, grow ’em!

Try Try Again

These are plants that I have not had much success with growing. (See first point above, I will care more about the garden)

Brussel Sprouts

Loose Leaf Lettuce

Cilantro
