I am one happy lady, I got to take a trip to my garden centre and plant nursery. Seeds are out! I made a promise to my spouse I wouldn’t take over the whole balcony with my garden this year so we can get patio furniture. I had decided then that I was going to only plant Tomatoes and Basil. I talked a little bit about this in a previous post. I am not sure if my perennials are going to come back in spring because they are only in containers and I don’t know if they survived the warm winter we had, only time will tell.
The tomatoes I planted last year were “Super Sweet 1000” they preformed really well and I thought they were delicious! My spouse didn’t really like them said they were too sweet, so when I was in the store I didn’t know what variety to get so I got them all. Or at least what they had. I do also have a mix or Hierloom tomato seeds that I also plan on starting. I’ll be that lady pawning off tomato and basil plants come spring time! I also got myself a little garden journal so I can record and document my experience. Hopefully I can come to a conclusion which breeds suit my tastes, and growing conditions.
After my little incident with the peat pots I vowed never to use them again. So I found at a Dollar store these plastic little seed starters perfect for starting my seeds in! I am so excited to get started on these guys. As you can see I also got three different types of basil as well. I planted Cinnamon basil last year and just absolutely loved it so I grabbed some more! I wanted to try growing some of the other flavours as well. The Tomato varieties I got this time are “Big Beef”, “Starfire”, “Bonny Best”, and the Heirloom I mentioned earlier. The basil varieties I got are “Sweet Basil”, “Lemon Basil”, and “Cinnamon Basil”. Lets get this planting started!
