Or ESGU. If Rachael Ray can make annoying acronyms, why can't I? ;)
The weather 'round here is relatively springish, and about 50% of what I want to have in the garden and yard for this year is already out. So far, I've put in -
*Sugar Snap Peas (Cascade & Oregon varieties)
*Strawberries (Hood & Rainier varieties) - These are in addition to last year's returning strawberries.
*Stevia (Giving this a try. It is apparently an annual in these parts, so we'll see how it goes.)
*Carrots (Cosmic Purple, Red-corded Chantenay and "Little Fingers", a stump-rooted variety)
*Potatoes (Yellow Finn, Russett & Yukon Gold)
Still to go -
*Cocozelle Squash (zucchini)
*Cucumbers (Homemade Pickles variety)
*Burgess Buttercup Squash
*Lettuces, Chard, Arugula (still under the grow lights)
The farmers market had tomato plants for sale today, but I'm once bitten, twice shy about putting 'maters out this soon. The weather has been highly unpredictable and I'd hate to waste my time and money, and that poor little plant's life on a foolish gamble against Mother Nature. However long it takes for our first tomato to be ripe, is how long it'll take. I've found that delayed gratification usually results in a better experience in most cases, especially in the case of a backyard tomato.
