The garden club at Silas’s school has an annual seed sale.
The seed order forms came yesterday. Joy!
Last year I put in a small raised garden bed. I got it planted late, and the growing season here is only 10 weeks. Not ideal conditions for a bumper crop.
We still got a row of green beans, lots of lettuce, cilantro and basil, a few small tomatoes and a couple cucumbers and baby carrots.
The pumpkins didn’t produce anything. Lots of flowers. No fruit.
The broccoli and the spinach didn’t do anything either. I think they got too much shade from the beans and tomatoes.
This year, I think I’m going to have to double the size of my garden bed.
My picks from the school seed list are:
- Sugarsnap peas,
- Green beans,
- New England Pie pumpkins,
- Yaya carrots,
- Basil, and
- Cosmonaut Volkov Tomatoes
Makes me happy just thinking about it!
