We typically buy organic heirloom seeds, so we can save seeds from the vegetables to plant the following growing season.
This year, we planted three varieties of tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant, carrots, celery, romaine lettuce, zucchini squash, crooked neck squash, Waltham squash, pumpkins, onions, peas, and green beans. Sweet potatoes, corn and red potatoes will be direct-sown in the garden. We will also plant a variety of medicinal herbs in a second garden.
We always make sure to save the seed packets, as they contain plant spacing information for transplanting in the garden.
It's so exciting to see the plants peeping through the soil in the containers!
We're definitely looking forward to planting season, which is usually around the second week of May here in the mountains.
