It's that time again.....

     It's time for some seed starting! This morning I started a set of Beefsteak Tomatoes, as well as yellow and red pear tomatoes and a bunch of red onions. I'll keep these inside for a week or two and then move them to the greenhouse and begin some more seeds.

     In the yard I'm clearing the raised beds, tilling the soil and deciding what I want to plan this year. I know I want a lettuce garden and I have the perfect half shady, half sun raised bed for that. I also want less small tomatoes and a few new varieties of larger tomatoes. I'll be adding a pumpkin area as well as corn, carrots and onions. We have a back section of yard that has never been used for planting thus far so I'm anxious to test it out.

     Are you starting seeds in your area? What new item are you planting this year?

  1. I'm considering a patio tomato plant. In Florida I deal with very sandy soil, so I've never had much success with vegetables. We'll see...

    1. Tomatoes grow really well in pots. You can control their temperature (moving to shade, more sun) and soil that way. We grew some of our biggest harvest last year in pots with cages. Happy gardening!
