New Seeds!


A few of the seeds I ordered for this year's veg garden.   I ordered from Baker Creek [www.rareseeds.com].

I'm going to try turnips this year among other things.    Last year was not a good year for my garden - poor strawberries, poor tomatoes, poor eggplant, etc.

I was thinking that the best eggplant are probably grown in the south, where it's good and hot and there's a very long season.   Then I heard a rumor that most of the world's eggplant is produced in New Jersey.   I checked the zone map here to find out what zone they mostly are. Most of New Jersey is in zone 6.    Interesting.  Perhaps it was just a good year for bugs last year and not a bad year for eggplant.   Given the cold we've had this year, I'm hoping the bugs are taking a good beating and that my veggies will do better.

Assuming it ever gets warm again, what will you be growing this year?

  1. Nothing says think Spring better than receiving seed catalogs and your seed order soon after! I already have some Bee Balm seedlings growing strong.
