Our Garden To Be.

Our seed selection, this year, was purchased from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds.

SONY DSCI’ve mentioned in couple posts now, how many varieties of vegetables, herbs, and fruit we plan on growing this year. We ordered our seeds for the entire year, rather than by the season. SONY DSCOur garden is looking much prettier than a month ago, and almost ready for planting! We will be starting our herbs, tomatoes, eggplants, peppers etc. inside in a week or two, but our radishes, beets, potatoes, kohlrabi, and potatoes will be getting sown directly into the soil by the end of this month.

Grey and I made this list as soon as our shipment came in, just to visually see on “paper” what we have.

For us, it makes planning the location of our plants, and crop rotation simpler. There are still a few things that we will add to this list such as strawberries and potatoes, but do not have yet.SONY DSC

A lot of these are new varieties for us, and we cannot wait to see how they turn out. I hope to share the challenges we face, and the success of each variety here on the blog. First challenge? We are still wrestling with WHERE we are going to plant these vegetables! 🙂SONY DSC

Right now, our “garden” is still all neatly packaged up into envelopes, but  in a few short months it will be full of buzzing bees, twirling vines, and producing most of our meals for us throughout the summer.

I can hardly wait…
