|If you can't tell, I'm really excited!|
Seedy Saturday was full of amazing community groups and fantastic, knowledgeable vendors and I walked away exceedingly happy but $80.00 poorer. I also was able to snag a clove of garlic that I was told has been grown in Hamilton at Dundurn Castle since the 1800's. Being the history geek and amateur grower that I am, I could barely wait for it to be put in my hands!
I know that I will probably grow my garden WAY too big and have WAY too many kinds of plants. However, variety is the spice of life so I am going to grow as many plants as I possibly can. My grow list for my garden this year is as follows:
Siberian Red Hungarian Hot Wax
San Marzano Early Jalapeno
Golden Cherry Matchbox Hot Pepper
Cherokee Purple Sweet Banana
Black Krim Aleppo
Jaune Flamme Chinese 5 Colour
Cosmonaut Volkov Hungarian Black
Gardener's Delight Cayenne
Druzba Corbaci Sweet
Old German Jimmy Nardello Sweet
Speckled Roman CUCUMBERS
Black Prince Homemade Pickle
Eva Purple Ball Lemon Cucumber
Farenheit Blue Marketmore 76
Djeena Lee Golden Girl Mexican Gherkin
Violet Jasper EGGPLANT
Indigo Rose Black Beauty
Looking back over this list I have now just realized that I have committed myself to growing 26 different kinds of tomatoes, 11 different kinds of peppers, 4 cucumbers and an eggplant. Plus I still haven't made it to any seedling sales so this number is likely to grow!! YIKES!
I guess my garden is going to be bigger than last year and this after I promised I would downsize! C'es la vie! I can't wait to start growing this year and hopefully I will be eating and sharing a lot of fresh vegetables!
