I finally placed my order to Baker Creek Seed. Their are some old favorites on the order, but most are things I've never grown before. After all that's what makes gardening fun, their is always something new to try.
I'm going to try broccoli for the first time and thought this one would be great since red and purple attract far less cabbage worms. 'Serpente di Sicilia Edible Gourd' also known as Cucuzzi is something I haven't eaten since we would visit my grandparents in Brooklyn. They were commonly grown in the tiny back yards. Red orach should look great in the ornamental borders and supply spinach like leaves well into the summer. 'Butter King' lettuce is supposed to be very heat resistant. 'Charleston Belle' peppers are nematode resistant. The wild strawberries should be fun to grow. Fig leafed hollyhocks are supposed to be rust resistant. Finally think how great those green nicotiana will look with green 'Envy' zinnia's.
Despite the warnings of more snow, I know that spring can't be that far away!
