There are so may fun things to look forward to in this envelope.
I can’t even list them all. There’s herbs and vegetables and flowers… lots of everything that I love to grow.
Among the early starts that I need to plant asap are onions… I chose Alisa Craig Exhibition and Southport Red Globe.
I also ordered Green Magic Broccoli which can be started outdoors in early spring, or indoors now. I’m torn about that because my indoor space is tight. Is anyone else direct seeding broccoli here on the coast of New England?
I have a few varieties of peppers to get going this week along with impatiens and pansies. We grew both successfully at Bass River last year so I’m looking forward to trying it at home.
Not far behind are the ten varieties of tomato, the cucumbers, the basils, the beans… the list goes on!
As you can see I had fun with this order. Pinetree Seeds was highly recommended by my friends Ed and Betsey who grow the most beautiful garden I’ve ever seen. Remember their onions?
One of the things that I like about Pinetree Seeds is that you can order a smaller quantity of seed at a much lower price than most other companies. This is great for the home gardener like me who only needs twenty plants per variety at most. I can try lots of fun creative things and still stay well within budget. The cute packaging and unexpected free gift of velcro garden ties were an added bonus. Let’s just hope these seeds germinate and thrive!
My goal is to grow almost, if not all, of our garden from seed this year. I had such a good time with my seed starting adventure last year that I’m feeling pretty optimistic about the season that’s about to begin.
Yes, the season is beginning!
The garden may look like this, but spring is coming!
Did you place your order yet? What are you thinking about growing this year?
Are you as excited as I am?
