Happy New Year and Happy New Garden

Happy 2010!

Crazy to think that a new decade is upon us, no? Well, here's to ten more fantastic years!

One of my personal goals (er, resolutions I suppose?) is to start a big garden. I grew some chives, green onions, a few jalapenos this past year but nothing to be proud of really. Not that I plan on growing a 1200 pound pumpkin or entering contests or anything of that sort ;)

I placed my very first seed order today with Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. I just couldn't wait anymore. Not sure why, since I can't really sow (even indoors) til February or so. But I've never been much of a patient person anyways.

Here's what I ordered!!

Blue Lake bush beans
Cherokee Trail of Tears pole beans
Dragon Tongue bush bean
Hutterite Soup bush bean

Calabrese Green Sprouting Broccoli

Lunar White Carrot
Cosmic Purple carrot

Country Gentlemen Sweet Corn
Dakota Black Popcorn

Delikatasse Cucumber
Marketmore Cucumber

Green leaf gailan- Chinese kale (aka Chinese Broccoli)
Tatsoi (never had but heard it was good in stirfries, same with gailan)
Russian Red or Rugged Jack Kale
Sanguien Ameliore or Strawberry Cabbage Lettuce (very pretty!)
Tom Thumb lettuce

Charentais Melon

Flat of Italy onion (purple/red small cippolinni like)

Hollow Crown Parsnip (cannot wait to make parsnip chips with this, via Alton Brown’s recipe!)

Leutschauer Paprika Pepper (want to try making my own paprika)
California Wonder Pepper, Bell
Sweet Chocolate Pepper, Bell

Tomatillo Verde

Green Zebra Tomato (I don’t like tomatoes, but these are pretty and I figure I’ll make salsas with them, Green Zebra will go perfect with the tomatillos in a salsa or guacomole!)
Black Cherry Tomato
Brandywine Tomato

Sugar Baby Watermelon (seemed like the right size for me & roomies)

Borage (heard it was good for companion planting)
Catnip (for the kitties)
Dill Bouquet
Parsley Giant Of Italy
Thyme

I already have some seeds for radishes, rainbow swiss chard, rosemary, genovese basil, jalapenos and some other peppers, pie pumpkins, cilantro/coriander, pomegranates, and a few others. I did totally forget to order Jarrahdale and Cinderella pumpkins from Baker Creek, so perhaps I can call or email tomorrow morning and add to my order :( Guess I was TOO excited to checkout!

That's going to be quite a garden there, Girly. I don't know why, but I thought you lived in an apartment. You must not. LOL
