But....this is what was planted in my second vegetable flat over the weekend: Eggplants Antiguan, Casper, Early Green Giant, Italian Pink Bicolor, Listada di Gandia, Louisiana Long Green, New York Improved, Speedy, Rosa Bianca, and Rosita
Tomatilloes: De Milpa, Toma Verde, Purple and Cisneros
Hot Peppers: Ancho, Bulgarian Carrot, Facing Heaven, Golden Cayenne, Kung Pao, Malu Miris, NuMex Heritage, Peter and Thai Dragon
Sweet Peppers: all of those on my 2011 Seedlings list (see the tab at the upper right) - 27 different varieties
And, in another flat - a flower and herb flat - I planted:
Flowers: Four different types of Hibiscus - yellow, white, red flowered and a mystery variety; four types of Zinnias, two types of Dahlias, two Cosmos, a Marigold.
Herbs: Cilantro, Parsley, Sesame, and nine types of Basil.
Germination in the initial eggplant/hot pepper flat is proceeding well - I will provide an update in my next blog entry.
Outside, today, I planted three types of radishes - one each, in large (5 gallon) pots. The last two years, my radishes (planted in the large garden) were a disaster - nice, big tops, but for the most part, no root development at all. Let's see what happens when they are grown in containers!
Next garden tasks - which I need to get to really soon! - transplanting lettuce and greens...they are getting big (I will take some pics tomorrow and post them).
I hope people's garden plans and preparations are going well!
