seed love

The countdown to spring has begun and my seed order from from Fedcoseeds arrived, highly exciting.  This is what’s on the table, or rather in the ground, for my little garden this year.

Little Marvel Shell Peas (nothing more rewarding than shelling your own peas)

Cascadia Snap Pea (summer wouldn’t be complete without)

Poona Kheera Slicing Cucumbers (absolutely the most crunchiest cucumber!)

French Breakfast Radish, Plum Purple Radish, Misto Rose Radish (they can be ready to pick in 21 days)

Red Russian Kale (possibly the best bang for your buck at 0.90c a packet we will be eating kale from June – October)

Organic Greens Mix (a wonderful baby mix of lettuces)

New Seeds to try

Eight Ball Zucchini (coz who doesn’t love a round one)

Yaya Carrot (haven’t had much luck with the carrot growing, hoping this one will be better)

Early Wonder Tall Top Beet (a fast growing beet)

Lollo Rossa Lettuce (lovely small red curly leaf lettuce)

Tenderleaf, Verte de Cambral  (um can’t quite remember what either of these are) so we will just have to wait and see.

Oh spring you taunt me so!

    Took the grow lights out of storage and getting ready to start the seedlings in about a week. Very excited! If all goes well we’ll have a few new varieties heading your way and any of the old favorites that you want. Let me know which of your favorites you want to grow this year.

    Buying seeds is pretty fun… i just bought a bunch from the diggers club here in australia and now watching the post every day. we live near sydney so i’m mega-excited about broccoli (romanesca and an heirloom one) and peas and real bona fide english spinach (instead of just silverbeet all the time- although i like that too).Anyway I forgot i’m not actually having a real conversation with you right now so i am rambling a bit, i just wanted to share that i enjoy reading about your garden and food love. thanks 🙂
