Little Packets of Joy!
After working on my garden plan (post coming soon!) I determined what new plant varieties I wanted to try this year. New to my garden will be watermelon and cantaloupe. I’m hoping to trellis them–anybody have any experience with this?
The first year I planted pole beans, a huge space saver. But I hated the beans. So last year I converted to bush, and will do it again this year. I’ve had miserable results with my cucumbers, so I’m experimenting with a new variety.
I’m planning on starting some things from seed–tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, and cabbage. Last year I did cauliflower, but it didn’t yeild much and took up a lot of space. So no more cauliflower! I also decided that starting onion seeds is not for me–I prefer the sets. I had TONS of peas last year (it was a really cold spring and the peas grew until July!), so I’m planting two varieties this year.
