Starting seeds

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

As usual this time of year, the siren call of the garden is practically shouting in my ear. The only way to answer it, of course, is to look indoors. It’s late to start seeds in the house, but I finally got my rear in gear and got some planted.

By the way, if anyone needs to order seeds, consider Victory Seeds. We’ve been customers of theirs for years and they’re terrific. (They’re the only ones, for example, who solved our corn problem — short season and high winds — with a marvelous short-season dwarf heirloom variety called Yukon Chief.)

This year I planted:

  • 25 cayenne peppers
  • 25 basil
  • 10 Brussels sprouts
  • 10 broccoli
  • 18 tomatoes (6 large, 12 paste)
  • 10 red bell peppers

Here I’m taking cayenne pepper seeds from last year’s harvest.

And Brussels sprouts seeds, also from our own harvest.

The nice thing about heirlooms is once you get going on them, they’re pretty much self-perpetuating. I didn’t get any broccoli last year because the aphids got the plants, so I’m grateful to a neighbor who shared some of her heirloom broccoli seeds with me.

Anyone else get anything planted?
