Whew! They're finally in! orders to the Vermont Bean Seed Company and Totally Tomatoes as well as a few things from The Cook's Garden. Most of the things ordered are heirloom varieties. I'll have to post a complete list of what's going into the garden later but tonight I ordered 3 heirloom tomatoes (Amish paste, Amana orange, and Polish Linguisa), peppers (Anaheim, paprika and Jalapeno), peas (shell- I already have some sugar snap), beans (3 colors of snap- green, purple and yellow, Christmas Limas, Scarlet runners), Bloody Butcher corn, broccoli, eggplant, beets and a blend of beets (golden, red and chioggia). Roger has already ordered Brandywine tomatoes (several colors), black tomatoes- I can't remember which one, cabbage and lots of other things. We are also planning to plant potatoes this year. Fingerlings and All Blue. Maybe by planting blue potatoes I can get K8 to eat them. We'll see. It's an ambitious year- lets hope our plans aren't bigger than our abilities!
