I got all of my plants in the ground – wrapping up planting today. All organic seed, all raised by me in my basement and all hand-planted.
Granted, the garden doesn’t look like much right now but give it a few weeks and the size and shape of every plant will change as they fill in their spaces!
Here’s the inventory! And, instead of talking about them, here are pictures of the newly transplanted, beautiful babies.
I put in 4 different types of tomatoes – 12 plants – Golden Slicer, Fir, Fox Cherry & San Marzano
Sweet Italian Peppers – 14 plants
Eggplants – 5 plants – Dusky and Melanzana Prosperosa
Zukes – 3 plants – saved seeds from last year’s Italian Zuchetta
Cukes – Saber F1 from Seeds of Change and Cetriolo from Grow Italian.
Kale – 10 plants – Curly, Russian, Dino & some unknowns from Adaptiv Seeds
Beets – lots and lots of plants – Cylindra and Early Wonder
Lettuce – Butterhead, Red Oak & a mix of saved seeds from last year and
Onions – 100 plants which I did not raise. I got these from an Amish friend.
Oh, and my thornless blackberries are growing and greening up! And right below them, my gorgeous blueberries are covered with flowers. Planted once, harvest every year for 20 years+ – organic gardening really is easy!
