Would love to hear what others are growing. I have about 300 tomato plants and about 500 herb plants all started from seed. I will compile my list and post.

What are you growing?????

REally nice selection, Ronnie.

I've been so busy growing herbs/veggies that my flowers have really taken a back seat and that makes me sad. I really need to get back to wintersowing.

Thanks Linda. I don't do too much in the way of veggies other than a few tomatoes. My neighbors do a huge vegetable garden as does my brother and I am welcome to help myself. I still have some pumpkins and gourds to start.

I've sown probably 30 types of Flowers, the ones that are up so far are Asarina, Linaria, morning glories, Cerinthe, Nicotiana, Zinnias and a few violas and snapdragons.
I've already transplanted dozens of tropical milkweed, and a few other perennial flowers I winter sowed. I've got a couple dozen of Duane's agastaches and salvias in.
The tomato starts I have in the greenhouse were located by a gopher so we are locked in mortal conflict over who gets to eat the tomatos.
I don't do many veges, I live in the country and the deer, skunks, birds and bunnies make edibles difficult. I'm a Flower Floozy anyway.

Dee--your snapdragons caught my eye. My grandmother always grew them, and they are one of my favorites. Unfortunately, I fight the rabbits or chipmunks here that like to mow mine down. You have a lovely list--I grow zinnias every year, too because they make such a wonderful. cut flower.

Don't critters make you crazy when they steal your seedlings/plants/veggies/fruit???? Angry
