the seeds of a new garden
I walked by a display of fresh new seeds yesterday and couldn't resist. I got packets of Heavenly Blue morning glory, cilantro, Mammoth and Bouquet dill, and Boston Pickling cucumber seeds. So my garden is starting!
I'm planning to set up my plant lights and shelves soon. Maybe next week. The earliest crops don't get planted til mid February, but I'd like to try growing sprouts, which I've never done. Maybe even some winter lettuce in containers.
I haven't yet put together my seed lists for mail order, but I've seen some interesting things in the various catalogs and email ads. I'll start a wish list here so I remember:
- Romanesco broccoli
- Chinese broccoli
- sweet potatoes (I'll probably start my own slips)
- potatoes (Russet Burbank, Dark Red Norland, All Blue)
- summer squash (Costata Romanesco)
- Long Island cheese pumpkin
