My Seeds Have Arrived!
All my seeds are here, and I am ready to garden. I get excited every year when my seeds arrive. Today I picked up the rest of the supplies I need to get my seeds started. Most years I have started seeds in the ground like my corn, squash, and beans, and purchased my tomato plants and pepper plants. This year, my grandma, who is an amazing gardener, has encouraged me to start my own. So I decided that I would give it a go- if I am able to start them myself, I will save quite a bit more money.
In addition to starting my own tomato and peppers this year, I am very excited to try a few new varieties of seeds this year- I am very excited about the mini Hubbard seeds I bought. I used to grow Hubbard squash back when I had a huge garden, but haven't been able to squeeze one into my raised beds- this new mini variety is supposed to be for smaller gardens- so we'll see. I am also excited about the Flamingo Swiss Chard seeds I bought, I love Neon & Bright Lights Swiss Chard, and I think Flamingo will be very pretty in the garden. I am also trying out a white cucumber.
Today is a beautiful day, and the sun is shining, so I'm off to continue getting the garden beds ready.
