mail order box
Another box from Johnny's! What fun.
This one has: light weight row cover to protect my brassicas from the white butterflies this summer, thermal black plastic for my tomatoes and peppers, pins, markers, and roll of nice-looking white plastic netting for my peas. Also a few packets (15) of seeds. (Does 15 count as a few?)
The seeds include some flowers recommended in my new gardening book (Great Garden Companions) as good vegetable companions. I am looking forward to a more colorful vegetable garden this year! The flowers are: asters (China Opus), Anise hyssop, cosmos (Cosmic Orange), marigold (Signet Lemon Gem) and nasturtium (Alaska Mix and Whirlybird Mahogany).
I also got some of my favorite varieties of bush beans (Provider), radish (small tricolored easter egg) and lettuce (green summer crisp Loma) seeds to share
with my parents (shhh, don't tell them). They will start their vegetable garden soon.
Lastly, a new cover crop to try this fall - Crimson Clover. I thought I'd mix it with my rye grass. Its early to order it, but this way I'll have it ready.
