Okay, that was obvious.
And so was that.
But I also do this….
Scour the heirloom seed catalogs, circling what I want to try when the weather finally warms up. Our growing season is short here. There is a danger of frost until June 15th! And the first fall frost is usually towards the beginning of September. This year I want to try something new with our raised beds. Mr. Ferrero Rocher and I are going to design some “greenhouse” covers with pvc pipes and plastic, ones we can move easily but will hopefully be strong enough to withstand our spring winds. If it works we’ll be able to start plants in March and April, a full two months earlier than normal!
Since we are still in the planning stages of what to plant, I’d like to know what must have plants you grow in your garden. Is there a special variety of tomato, or green beans, or carrots that you always have to grow? Also, where do you buy your seeds from? I like to use Baker Creek but would like to look at other places too.
