Most of my thoughts are on gardening right now. So a gardening post seems appropriate.
I have tomatoes, celery, cabbage and bell peppers sprouting under lights so far.
In the dozen or so raised beds outside I have in combinations of what survived from last season and what we recently planted: Collards, New Zealand Spinach, Asparagus, Cabbage, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Jalapenos, Bell Peppers, Swiss Chard, Strawberries, Spinach, Carrots, Onions and Radishes.
I will report back later on how we are doing with all these but what I wanted to do today is share some favorite gardening websites and resources. So here goes:
Daves Garden Watchdog - reviews of online plant stores and catalogs
Yucca Do Nursery - heat tolerant plants
Plant Delights Nursery - good assortment of plants
Seeds of Change - Seed catalog
High Country Gardens - Low Water Plants
Bluestone Perennials - another great source for plants
BBB Heirloom Seeds - heirloom seed source
Onalee's Seeds - small company - nice assortment of seeds
Wildseed Farms - wildflower seeds
Native American Seeds - native seeds
Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds - heirloom seeds
Seed Savers Exchange - nonprofit - dedicated to saving and sharing heirloom seeds
Heirloom Seeds - all heirloom seeds - they are good but order early they hand pack and sometimes they are slow.
Old Farmers Almanac Garden Planner - use this online planner to plan your garden
Gardenate Gardening Calendar - Use this resource to know what to plant each month
I know I am leaving something out so I am sure there will be a follow up post but this should be plenty to check out for now! Happy Gardening!
