I’ve spent the last few weeks periodically drooling over the seed selections in my Baker Creek seed catalogue. I always dream of having a huge garden when in reality I only have a very small garden spot. It’s always a little painful to have to eliminate choices I don’t have room for. Especially from Baker Creek. They sell heirloom seeds from all over the world. If you enjoy gardening, I would encourage you to visit their website. So many seeds, so little room!
I think I have narrowed down my picks for this year. Pretty sure. Maybe. I’m going to give broccoli a try since it’s something we all really like, And of course salad fixin’s are a must. There’s nothing quite like picking your lunch 5 minutes before you eat it! I’ve chosen a salad mix and green onions, and I’m going to try celery this year too. Carrots don’t seem to like my dirt so I’m giving those a pass. Green beans will grow up the chain link fence along with sugar snap peas. I’ll have some tomatoes in pots as well as potted herbs: basil, oregano, rosemary, chives, cilantro, and parsley. And although I would love to have potatoes, onions, garlic, and sweet corn there just isn’t enough room. Same goes for watermelons, cucumbers, spaghetti squash, and so many others. Sigh.
So for now I will plant what I can in this season and continue to plan for my big garden in a future season when I have more space. It’s actually kinda fun to plan out the perfect garden. On paper there are no limitations and I really like that idea. It’s still a little too early to start planting here but it’s supposed to be around 65 degrees today, so I think I’m going to go outside and play in the dirt!
Do you have a garden? What are your favorite things to grow?
