The number of pepper and eggplant varieties will be reduced so that I can focus on tomatoes. Our big side garden will be reduced in size by one half, since the rear just doesn't receive the sun exposure that equates to productive plants. Current plans are to grow lettuce, beets, chard, bush beans, cukes, and squash (all repeats from previous years), as well as some new crops - sweet potatoes, potatoes, carrots and leeks - all in straw bales. What fun!
I've ordered my seeds and hope to get tomatoes, peppers and eggplant started in mid-February, just after we return from our Seattle trip (that is going to be one busy week - four workshops and five book signings). The goal remains the same, though - mid February seed start, leading to a mid-March transplant (just after returning from Philadelphia!), and seedling readiness and garden planting in mid-April.
Stay tuned - variety lists will appear soon!
