It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year...

2011 has not even arrived yet, and already I've put in my seed order for next year's garden. As I have mentioned previously, I did not actually need to order very many seeds. I did quite well with my seed saving last summer, so we're mostly-set for next year. I have been putting my SSE membership to good use this month, ordering Orange Fleshed Purple Smudge tomato seeds and Papa de Rola pole bean seeds from fellow members. We will be growing many varieties from last year's garden, as well as some "new" heirloom introductions. Here's the unofficial 2011 gardening list (The names in bold red are the ones that are new-to-us for 2011):
  • Applegate Valley Heirloom Tomato
  • Cherokee Trail of Tears pole bean
  • Papa de Rola pole bean
  • Dragon's Tongue bush bean
  • Early White Vienna Kohlrabi
  • Bloomsdale Long Standing Spinach
  • Arugula
  • Beauregard and Purple Sweet Potatoes
  • Walla Walla Onions
  • Egyptian Walking Onions
  • Negresse Potato
  • Ajawiri Potato
  • Kennebec Potato
  • Marina di Chiogga winter squash
  • Black Futzu winter squash
  • Ping Tung eggplant

  • Ground Cherry
  • Prescott Fond Blanc Melon
  • Piel de Sapo (aka "Toad Skin") Winter Melon

And of course the usual ridiculous amount of herbs!
