Seed Order DAY!

It's 60 degrees out in the sun and it makes one feel like spring is here! 
Must be time to plant. Only it isn't yet. 
I can't plant for two weeks or we'll end up with spindly plants wishing away the spring. 

I just checked my seed supplies and was amazed to find I had used up nearly 
EVERY tomato seed I ordered last year.
Just placed the 2013 order.
So excited for those seeds to arrive.

There are a few types that I tried last year that I will not be repeating. 
I will not be planting a fancy variety of heirloom seeds.
Those just did not work out so well for us. 
They crack, and are weird shapes, colors and textures.
In short, they don't sell well.

I'm expanding my Roma Varieties.
They don't sell to markets but friends will can them.
I plan to charge a little for my canners this time around.
I ended up giving away way too many tomatoes last year.

We've weeded out the grape and cherry varieties over the past few years to three we like best:

On the advice of friends we are trying a new cucumber for the greenhouse.
Socrates ~ from Johnny's select seed.
I'll let you know how that turns out.

Can't wait to get started!!
