Hooray for Spring! Friday is the official first day of spring even if there is still snow on the ground. I've been collecting seeds to plant in the garden this year. I got some I collected from last year's garden I want to try out, some from Hometown Seeds, some fun varieties from Baker Creek Heirloom seeds, and a couple packets from the regular old store. These are the Baker Creek seeds that arrived yesterday.
It's too bad the garden still looks like this:
Yep, you can almost see the planting beds. Almost. Since starting my own seeds last year really wasn't that hard, I'll be getting the starter plants going in the little peat pots here in the next couple of days. Maybe sooner if my kids get their way. We're starting the tomatoes, peppers and chichiquelite huckleberry. Never tried that one, but I'm always up for trying something different so we're going to give it a shot. Planting now will give the plants about two extra weeks indoors than they had last year to maybe get them a bit bigger before heading outside. Last freeze can come here as late as Mother's Day, so not much else can get planted before that. Any fun plans for your garden this year?
