Pouring through the seed catalogs...
Working to make a realistic plan and not overdo the seed purchases...Everything looks lovely.
On the list, but not specifics yet--
Early season tomatoes in addition to some later ones--we're hoping to start these from seeds this year because it is our understanding that the blight came from the nursery tomatoes.
>>I need to do some research and we need to take some precautionary measures regarding disease with these due to last year's problems. This will include some new soil.
In self-watering containers--
mini bell peppers
pumpkins of some sort (have a couple of different types of seeds already)
onions, particularly scallions
broccoli--probably a couple different varieties
---again need to do research here--we've never had good luck with peas or peppers. I'm hoping a self-watering container will help with the peppers.
flowers/herbs (some for companion planting)
poppies (a couple varieties--we love these)
Hoping our perennials come back strong this spring.
We also have some other things coming this spring that I ordered back in July from Raintree. I have an email in to them to confirm what's coming, because I can't remember anymore, LOL.
