Elephant tin time of year

26 Apr

Finally after all these weeks of cold and rainy weather we had a lovely sunny day.  Well at least half the day was sunny and warm.  In any case there was enough time to dig out our elephant tin full of seeds to plant for our upcoming orto (vegetable garden).Full of seeds from years past and new seeds collected over the last months.  And a few pairs of miniature garden gloves for those little gardening assistants we couldn’t do without.Making decisions about what to plant and preparing our seed-starter mini-serres for indoors.One of this year’s orto projects is planting as many different kinds of heirloom tomato plants as we can find.

Pink Thai Egg Tomatoes, Striped Stuffer Tomatoes and Fargo Yellow Pear Tomatoes.Snow White Cherry tomatoes, Black Brandywine tomatoes and Purple Cherry Chocolate tomatoes.

Piselli (sweet pea) is also a must.A little bit of water and a lot of luck and hopefully some of these plants will start sprouting soon.My salad bed (5 different kinds).  Anyone know if I planted them too closely together?
