Seed Starting 2014

I don’t know about you but I can’t wait for spring.  We had so much snow this year and I can’t wait for it to all melt and be gone.


While I’m stuck indoors during this crazy snowy winter, I’ve been giving a-lot, even too much, thought to my garden.

I’m trying some new things this year. The most exciting is bunching onions. I’ve got some Burbee Evergreen Long White Bunching Onion seeds that sound pretty easy.

Also new on the menu this year, spinach, radishes, and Kentucky Wonder garden stringless string beans.

I’ve also got some new flower selections. Snowball Marigolds and Lilliput Zinnia Mix. The Marigolds are white and very frilled and the Lilliput zinnias are a bit smaller than the standard zinnia.

I’m also doing tomatoes, hot peppers, jalapenos, sugar snap peas, and a variety of herbs. I’ve also got summer squash and zuccinni on the menu as well as another attempt at a butternut squash.

The tomatoes, peppers and onions will get started in March and the zinnias, lettuce, and herbs will start in April. Everything else will be direct-sown in april or may depending on how cold-hardy they are. I’m hoping for an early spinach crop as well as a profusion of green beans.

Now if the ground would thaw already I could start working in compost and doing some of the landscaping I’ve got planned for this spring!
