2013 Garden Seed List

I need an intervention.

You know how they say never go grocery shopping when you're hungry? Yeah, well never do your seed order in the middle of winter when you are craving salads, either!

Yes, I went a bit crazy on the lettuce selection this year, but everything else is within normal limits, right? RIGHT??

124 varieties, almost 1000 sq. ft. of planting space (I'm planting beds more than once), somewhere around 4000 separate plants.

It's going to be a busy summer!

  1. I think most of us need an intervention! I thought I ordered a butt-ton of seeds, thanks for making me feel better! Lol. I'm planting okra too this summer, first time for me. 'Clemson'. I ordered a bunch of seeds of Manitoba (Heritage Harvest Seeds), so far I've been quite happy with what's germinated. I got 'Alma Paprika' peppers from her. Should be interesting to see how those taste! I also bought a bunch of different tomatoes from her; 'Early Annie', 'Martino's Roma', 'Bison'. Also got 'Mascara' lettuce, 'Doe Hill' peppers, 'Old Homestead' rhubarb, and Purple tomatillos (supposedly very rare).
    And then I went nuts over at T&T Seeds (also in Manitoba); 'Black Cherry' tomatoes, an Elderberry plant or two, 2 plants each of 'Fall Gold', 'Royalty Purple' raspberries and green tomatillos.
    Have you ever grown 'Red Stalk' celery?
    I can't see my front window for greenery!!
    This snow needs to melt faster!

    1. We need AA for gardeners!!

      I want elderberries as well (I have just the spot for them - the shaded spot that floods after every rain!. I grew up eating elderberry pie, and it's still a favourite.

      I haven't tried red stalk celery yet - it was on my "want" list this year, but got cut off. Yes, even though that list is way too long, there are some seeds I actually didn't buy!!
