Since there is not much happening in the garden right now, I am carefully planning the garden- seed starting times, transplant dates, and planting dates.
Here are the seeds that I ordered for this year.
Some of these varieties I have planted before and I'm restocking, others are new to me. I save a few of my seeds, but not too many- someday I will do better at that!
Here is the list of what I'm growing this year (although they may be subject to change a bit!!) from seed or root:
All varieties are from Bakers Creek unless otherwise noted. Also all are open pollinated except the fennel.
