The Garden: Spring
I finally planted the last of my vegetable seedlings, at least for now! I always seem to purchase even more as the seasons go on and fit them in here and there. I was a little lazy in removing all of last years plants and as a result I have tomatoes, lettuce, arugula and chamomile popping up everywhere! I let them go to seed and the seeds were blown in the wind, eventually watered and now are producing wonderful vegetables! I think I had about 30 tomato seedlings growing and I've significantly reduced those but kept quite a few. So I have at least 3 different types from last year (San Marzano, Yellow Pear, Green Zebra) and I added 2 more (Brandywine, Stupice). The seedlings are already producing flowers and that is a good sign!
Here is a list of what is in my garden:
Green beans (2 types)
Tomatoes (5 types)
Red bell pepper
Yellow bell pepper
Can't wait to plant even more and I look forward to preparing lots of wonderful meals this Summer!
