This is one of my favorite days of the year.
This year we are starting 12 kinds of tomatoes, mostly scienced down to our favorites:
The Cosmonot Volkov, Supersweet 100, a yellow pear, the Cherokee Purple, Black Prince, Brandywine, a Green Cherokee (new for this year!), Glacier, Beefsteak, Paul Robeson, Big Rainbow (also new, I think it’s orange), and Generic Yellow as purchased at Home Depot because no one around here had yellow tomato seeds and I don’t have time to order them.
The other trays are full of flowers…I have high hopes for my flower borders this year! I am starting Nasturtiums, Dianthus, Zinnias, Coreopsis, Rudbekia, Love Lies Bleeding, Sweet Alyssum, Bee Balm, Salvia, Larkspur, Gaillardia, and Blue Vervain.
If it works I have LOTS of flowers I am excited to start next year, but this year I am forcing myself to use the seeds I had lying around (I know).
