looky here!

We planted one strawberry plant into an old tire and its making strawberries!
We also took these ends of celery and planted them in the garden. I am hoping these little things will make more celery!
We are still waiting for our heirloom seeds to come in so we can plant them in the garden. Here is what the garden will consist of:

Blue Lake Bush Beans (string beans)
Henderson's Lima Beans
Purple Hill Speckled Cowpeas
Bull's Blood Beets
Golden Beets
Long Cucumbers
Marketmore 76 Cucumbers
Telegraph Improved Cucumbers
Orlinabel Melons
Louisiana 16 inch Long Pod Okra
Red Okra
Stewarts Zeebest Okra
Yellow Crookneck Squash
Lemon Squash
Black Beauty Zucchini
Golden Zucchini
Empress of India Nasturtiums (to make colored and flavored vinegar)
Yellow Sweet Corn
Lots of Tomatoes!

We order our heirloom seeds from here. They are by far the best heirloom seeds ever. They have so many varieties of any thing you want to plant.

My favorite seed is the Lemon Squash seed. We grew these little squash last year and were very surprised by them. They taste just like the yellow crookneck squash but look like lemons.

I am patiently waiting for our order! Can't wait! So ready to plant the garden and enjoy all of the beautiful vegetables and fruits that God has created!

God Bless!

  1. I love lists of seeds and garden plans! Your's sound great! With the way this weather has been I get the feeling I am behind even with the hoophouse 1/2 planted(and it's only the first of April!)
