Its been quite some time since I've last written and there's a reason for it. I have gone hydroponic for the winter with the herbs: thyme, rosemary, sage, mixed mints, basil, zaatar, oregano and cilantro. I am a nervous Nelly because I know nothing about hydroponics and there is so much to learn. (pictures will be on facebook)
So far things are going well though. I started late, but now things are beginning to grow nicely.. Could it be due to this incredible weather???? I am nervous about that too. Too many degree days will make the insects this summer pretty challenging.
I've also made my seed order and will tell you that I will have many heirloom varieties including:
55 varieties of tomatoes
40 varieties of peppers - hot and sweet
65 varieties of vegetables
70 variteies of culinary & medicinal herbs
100’s of perennials
and a tiny gift shop
I will also be ordering things I can't start from seed but are way cool and must have perennials fro zones 3-5. AND weather permitting this is a dig and divide year from the perennial gardens. Huge divides ready to plant.
I am tinkering, experimenting, dreaming, hoping and constantly thinking about growing things to sell this spring.
See you next spring!!!!
