It's not that I've been wasting time....I am very pleased with progress on editing of my upcoming book, and just finished distributing seeds for the 2014 Dwarf project. I've pretty much finished a first draft of my planting plan, and the garage workbench is cleaned off and ready to go. This will be a very short blog, because it is 70 degrees outside, the sun is shining....and the seeds need to be planted!
Before I head off to the garage, a few things about how the season is shaping up. I've got some garden talks already on the calendar - Eno and Atlantic Springs Nursery, and the Heritage Harvest Festival at Monticello are confirmed, and I am working on the Cape Fear Botanical Garden and Southern Season dates. I've got to replant the tomato varieties that the book will feature (some photos need retaking), and that will be the focus of my own gardening efforts; it is going to be a MUCH smaller effort - less peppers, eggplant, dwarf tomatoes, a less crowded driveway, a significantly reduced side garden.
As far as seedlings, my current thinking is that I will not be taking plants to the Farmers Market for all sorts of reasons. As the plants reach readiness, we can work out ways that you can get the seedlings....but that's getting ahead of things. I've pretty much settled on varieties, and will be updating the From The Vine seedling variety page soon. A highlight is that I will have seedlings from all 25 of the Dwarfs that our project has released to date!
OK - off to plant our future salads!
