Already planning the 2014 veggie garden!

I have ordered 8 tomato plants from Wild Boar farms. Did this late last fall. I have been interested in the Wild Boar Farms Varieties since I first heard of them. I got-
Pork Chop
Black & Brown Boar
Blue Gold
Solar Flare
Blue Beauty
Sweet Carneros Pink
AAA Sweet Solano
Berkeley Tie Dye


Then today due to being stuck inside and dreaming of spring, I went to Burpee and bought plants there also. I bought three tomato plants. SteakHouse Hybrid, Porterhouse Hybrid and Razzle Dazzle.

I also bought three eggplant plants. My favorite eggplant last year was Fairy Tale but I only had one plant of it. So I bought three plants.

And I have all sorts of seeds for all sorts of veggies from last year. So I have made a great start on my spring veggie garden.

What a wonderful thing to do.....odd names on those tomatoes, but I bet they'll taste super! Wish I had a greenhouse to start something edible!

I'll be looking for some more tomatoes to grow in the community garden this summer--didn't plant enough last year. Never saw so many names I did not recognize! Hilarious! Gotta know this one...Black & Brown Boar--a quick description please? Is Fairy Tale a mini eggplant? I'm looking for those as well, preferably suited for the CT. short growing season. Have very little room to start plants indoors. Your posts made me realize I never received my usual print catalogs, yet anyway, so guess I'd better get busy online. I found the nearby, reasonably priced garden centers near me did not have a large variety last year. Didn't help that it took me til mid-April to determine my health had improved enough to allow me consider any sort of gardening last year as well. Thanks for the wake up call! Thumbs up

Wow, Celeste, you really have been planning for spring. Great idea on those fruit trees. I wish I had more room around here for fruit trees. And a great selection of summer veggies you got seeds for,

I well remember your awesome cucumber harvests from last year, I was so impressed to see the amount of cucumbers you harvested. I decided to try some smaller cuke varieties also myself this year and already have seed. And last fall I had put up the fence posts for two more short section trellis for my will be cukes to grow on.

I ordered a lot of cosmos & poppy seeds this year.....they seem to do well, while the ones I have to start indoors languish! You always have a productive veggie garden, Pixie.

The reality is a properly set dinner table requires a floral centerpiece. Whistling
And it is too early to start growing the salad course... Big Grin
