Today I went to the garden center and bought the starts for my garden. Come harvest time I think I may need to find a food bank, as I don't know if 3 people can use 7 plants worth of tomatoes.
At least there are several different kinds of tomatoes. And to be honest we eat tomatoes in some form at least once a day. Whohead will even just snack on them like an apple if I let her. Anyway, I bought 2 Roma plants, a Grape Tomato & a Sweet 100 which are both miniature varieties. I also purchased a Red Beefsteak, and early fruiting variety called Early Girl and a yellow variety called Jubilee. I had really wanted to find an orange variety as well but didn't have any luck...and now quite frankly I would be out of garden space. I figure if I don't use them all as they ripen we can always have a HUGE pasta cookout with all the neighbors and I can make the red sauce.
I also picked up Sequoia and Allstar varieties in strawberries. Those, along with the raspberries & blackberries I got a couple of weeks ago, should make some great jams if I get really ambitious this fall. Finally I picked up some cilantro & basil plants and for L a couple of snap peas that should grow without having to be staked. If the weather cooperates this week my garden should be planted by the weekend.
