    here comes the garden. Next up my Stokes, then Vesey's then all the direct seed. I love spring. This winter was horridly hard. Plus in the new house we had to convert the mud room into a cat sanctuary and now without warning I'm doing rescue for all the babies that were thrown outside last winter. 8 inside. 3 still on the outside
    working from feral to civilized aint easy lol.

    Sooooooooooooooooo here comes the seeds. I'm rocking with some new ones. Dragoon a mini romaine. 30 days baby!!! I am eating. The Indigo series of indeterminate tomatoes that they claim are better than my Sweet Millions, Zebulon an awesome mini sunflower with a green center

    That's just for starters.

    What did all of you order?

    You are so blessed. Sigh. In Tennessee I could pull off two seasons. Now I can and do pull off some like sweet millions or indigo cherry, but its horrid to pull of some of my favorite heritage like striped german or brandywine. Such is zone 2A.

    Oh determinate are tomato plants that only produce once. Indeterminate means they produce continually.

    So if you really want rockers go for sweet millions. I can tell you these are the killer producers EVAH.

    Cherry tomatoes that taste like candy man. No shit. Unfreaking real. You skewer them and put them on the grill. You are talking to die for.

    I grow from seed so I'm playing a little loose and wild with year because we just got this new property with acreage. But will let you know what works and from what seed company.

    What's left of my "garden" turned into a sinkhole and now has two feet of ice over it. My wife told me that her dad had a building where it is now but in my typical husbandly fashion, I wasn't paying attention.

    It was a nice garden after we got rid of the mule who once lived on it. But then some seeds that were in the hay bales took over everything. I come from a long line of farmers but the family farming genes stopped with me.
