Yay, they're finally here! Or maybe I shouldn't say finally, as it took less than a week for them to get here after I ordered them, so they actually got here pretty quickly. I was just starting to get worried that I wasn't going to get my tomatoes planted soon enough, which happened to me last year. But they hot here, so everything's good! My tomatoes and peppers are planted in little jiffy pots, and are on their way to becoming big, productive plants. I can't wait until they sprout! By then it should be time to start some broccoli and brussels sprout seedlings. I love growing things! Now if only all this pesky snow would melt, then I could really start getting my hands dirty. Oh well, at least the end is near; winter's slowly ending. The last frost date isn't until late May, but as long as the snow is melting, I have hope that the Sun will once again show his warm face. (Winter depresses me, can you tell?) For now though, I can still be excited about the seeds! I ordered mine all from heritage harvest seeds.
|heirloom tomatoes (4 kinds!), peppers, lettuce, broccoli, brussels sprouts, beets, kale, wintercress, quinoa, mustard greens, carrots, and beans|
|heirloom kale, beans, carrots, mustard greens, lettuces, (all different varieties than this year's seeds), spinach, amaranth, sugar snap peas, swiss chard, orach, and arugula|
|I even tried saving my own bean and pea seeds last year. Let's hope they grow!|
Isn't just amazing how beautiful, delicious, and colourful heirloom organic vegetables can grow from such humble little seeds? I just love how a tiny little yellow ball, only about 2 mm in diameter can grow into a huge, almost tree-like plant that can nourish a person, and also be strong enough to stay stuck in the ground for a lot longer than the 15-year-old girl trying to yank it up would like.
