Joining those are two flats of tomatoes, and a mixed flat of the remainder of the tomatoes, along with a few slow or low-germinating peppers and eggplant and ground cherries. There is also a mixed flat of this and that - lettuce, leeks, beets, chard, collards, and various herbs...and my first shot at Okra (the burgundy variety).
For the most part, there are few surprises in my selections this year. I don't have time for a significant experimental garden - mostly I want to grow all 36 released Dwarfs to get good documentation and testing. However, there are four really interesting plantings....my first attempts at crossing. If all goes well, I will be planting these hybrids: Sleeping Lady (a chocolate colored medium sized dwarf) X Sun Gold, Dwarf Mr. Snow X Cherokee Chocolate, Summer Sunrise (a medium yellow potato leaf dwarf) X Mortgage Lifter, and Mortgage Lifter X Sun Gold. If the crossed with the dwarfs took, the plants will be indeterminate in growth habit - I will know soon if I was successful. For the Mortgage Lifter X Sun Gold, it may mean waiting until the tomatoes form to see if I was successful.
So, what's next? If the seedlings germinate well, they will be ready to go under the grow lights while I am Philadelphia....soon after my return, it will be time to start transplanting. Where is the year going....time is flying so fast right now.
