Here we go again…
Early March, there is still snow on the ground, but I inventoried my seeds yesterday. I pulled all old and likely not viable ones out of the box - usually I toss them into the untended lots around here. If anything sprouts the wildlife can enjoy it.
This year I’m going with:
Lettuce (mixed leaf)
Radish (“easter egg” mix)
Onions (white, yellow, red)
Carrots (purple, will also acquire more colors)
Dill (expecting volunteers since last year I let it go to seed. Also expecting swallowtail butterflies, who are damn lucky I think they’re pretty as both caterpillars and butterflies)
Maize (have some Oaxacan I’m pretty sure is still viable)
Potimarron (French heirloom squash, sort of like acorn but I think it’s tastier)
Cucumbers (Japanese climbing)
“Green” beans (actually have them in green, yellow, and purple)
This year’s New Vegetable is PARSNIPS, which I have never attempted to grow before but we enjoy eating.
Dropped off the list this year:
Kohlrabi (I’m the only one that eats it and while I like it well enough it’s not that exciting)
Popcorn (fun, but I need the room for the maize for the parrots and popcorn is cheap at the store)
Acorn squash (need the room for the potimarron)
What is everyone else planning?
