Ok, this is a work in progress. I was inspired by Erin, who posted her planting list
. So, I decided to go through my seeds again and make a master list- and it's a good thing, too! I discovered that I am out of some things I thought I had (or I just can't find-although all my seeds are collected.. hmmm)
So, the planting list so far.
Ananas Noir- Baker Creek- my new variety for the year.
Jeunne Flamme- stash/saved seed
Campbell's super secret- saved seed
Polish Linguisa- stash/saved
Amana Orange- stash/saved
Black Sea Man- stash
Black Krim- Stash
Yellow Cherry- saved (although I know it will come up volunteer in the garden- why do I save it???)
Amish Paste- stash
And, I discovered that I'm OUT of Mortgage Lifter seeds!!! I have NO red beefsteak tomatoes!! How can this be!!!!????? Of course- I saved seeds a year ago- but that was the year the mortgage lifters got hit by an early blight and I didn't get any seed saved. I used the last of my stashed seed last year. Hmm, I bet I can get some from Roger... or maybe something different......
Purple Beauty- Baker Creek- new variety
Volcano (hot hungarian wax) saved
Alma Paprika- saved/stash
Peter, Red- saved. I'm debating on this one. It is a fun conversation pepper but it really has too long a growing season for us and doesn't do too well.
Red and Yellow Bell- saved
And of course, we have the Black Pearls that I fell in love with last year....
India Paint- saved
Cabbage- Red acre- stash. I hope for a spring and fall planting
Broccoli- Super Blend (hybrid!)- Cook's Garden (spring and fall) this (and I bet the cauliflower) is my hybrid purchase for the year- but we have had such good luck with this blend in the past.
Cauliflower Rainbow Blend- Cook's Garden (spring and fall?)
Wild Kale Mix (4 heirloom varieties)- Cook's Garden- for Fall
Purple- Baker Creek
Toma Verde- stash- and these came up volunteer in the garden last spring!
Carnival Blend (4 colors)- stash
Parisienne- Baker Creek Freebie!
Lots of stashed odds and ends- white icicle, watermelon, french breakfast, pink beauty
Black Spanish- stash- for a fall planting
Detroit Red- stash
Cook's Custom Mix- stash
Lots of mesclun mix odds and ends from the stash
All season Romaine Mix- Cook's Garden
Rainbow- Baker Creek
Shelling- Lincoln- stash
Snap- Sugar Snap- stash
Christmas Lima- stash
Scarlet Runner- stash
Green Bush (no name???)- stash
I have some Jacob's Cattle Beans from a seed exchange but I'm not sure I'll have room. Maybe.....
I also discovered that I'm out of purple bush and yellow wax beans- but I know a local store often has them for ten cents a packet for heirloom varieties (if you don't mind small packages- but then we don't actually eat a LOT of beans so it usually works for us)
Tigger- Baker Creek- something else new for us!!
I'm pondering a sugar baby watermelon but I'm not sure I've got that much room.
summer- Billiards mix (round zucchini?)- stash.
I was pondering what happened to the patty pan seeds I planted last year when J16 reminded me that someone had given me a few seeds- oh yeah.....)
Speckled Hound- heirloom- Cooks garden- new (something smaller than last year!!)
Waltham Butternut- stash
I'm contemplating more Galeux d'eysines since we had so much luck with them last year but I'm not sure I'm prepared for 450 lbs of squash again!
Chires baby- Baker Creek- a new one for us
I'm debating planting sweet corn again. It takes up so much room and we can get it so easily from the local farmers...
Parsley- gourmet mix- Cooks Garden Freebie
Basil- Genovese- stash
Clary sage- stash
Summer savory- stash
Dill, Mammoth- stash
Oh, there are others as well...
Wild flax- J16 picked up this packed at the store a week ago- am I a bad influence or what!!
Moon flowers- stash
Litchi Tomato- saved seeds
More stuff we got for the goth garden last year and never got planted. And some other freebie flower seeds from here and there.....
- I always pick up onion sets from a local seed/pet store where you can mix and match in bulk.
Oh, and I completely forgot to mention cucumbers
- K10's favorite vegetable.....
There will probably be other things we find to plant- you know how it is.
Yeesh- just looking at that list makes me exhausted!
I know that the parsley needs to be started early
(up to 12 weeks prior to last frost) and that is coming up toward the end of February. OOOH!!! It's getting close!!!! I just need to set up my seed growing racks somewhere other than the kitchen since we will be gutting the kitchen in March.
NEED... TO... SAVE.... SANITY...............
OOPS, TOO LATE!
