We did the big sort of what we will plant and what will be donated to the plant sale tomorrow at church. I made the mistake of asking V's advice on how much we should plant and now we're probably planting more than I had anticipated. But, we have scaled back the tomatoes from last year. Only 32 plants rather than 50! LOL!! Of course, I have 10 varieties planted so that doesn't help. We are really planting more peppers than we will need. but we hope to smoke some more chipotle so we wanted plenty. The final list for planting:
4 Campbell's Super Secret (we don't know what they will do since we don't know if they are hybrids)
5 Polish Linguisa
2 Amana Orange
1 Yellow Cherry
4 Jaune Flamme
4 Black Krim
2 Mortgage Lifter
3 Amish Paste
3 Black Sea Man
4 Jetsonic Hybrid
4 Volcano (hot wax)
3 Alma Paprika
2 Peter, Red
2 Yellow Bell
2 Red Bell
2 Long Red Sweet (saved from grocery store peppers that were really good)
3 Black Pearl peppers that will be in J15's Goth Garden
2 Toma Verde Tomatillo
3 India Paint Eggplant
1 Litchi Tomato (Thanks Erin!!)
So much for cutting back this year!
J15 and I also picked up supplies this afternoon for doing some sheet mulching for her Goth Garden. I hope we will have time to do that tomorrow as well but I'm not holding my breath. I'm also going to have lots of little flowers finding temporary homes until the septic is done.
And lastly, the baby robins are getting big. There is hardly enough room in the nest for all of them. I just took a quick peek this afternoon- I didn't want to keep Mama from the nest for too long since it was cold today.
Have a wonderful Mother's Day- hug your favorite Mom!
