We have been busy with our new garden seedlings this month. Our peppers, tomatoes and flowers are all starting to come up now and it’s only been a few weeks since we planted them in trays! This year we plan to expand our pepper sales at @DadsPeppers as we have a ton of new varieties for 2016. We don’t just sell hot pepper plants we also have sweet peppers and not the same old bell pepper plants you will find in the big box stores.
This year we are growing some new varieties of flowers as well, such as Impatient Balsam, Yellow Cerinthe, Purple Datura, Blue Datura, Euphorbia marginata or another name for the flower plant is called Snow on the Mountain! We don’t sell our flowers but they will look lovely in our yard.
Tomatoes are a new thing for me this year as I planted 12 varieties of tomatoes I thought were popular and I may sell a few plants if people are interested when they are here buying their pepper plants. This is something I have researched but Morgyn really knows more about the tomatoes than I do and has an awesome soil mix for them that’s she’s made over the last few years.
This year our Rhubarb in our garden is doing great! We grew it in a special spot for it to grow for years to come! As well as a Bergamot plant that we transplanted in the same spot. It sure will smell sweet there in the warmer weather coming soon. Our Asparagus is slowly starting new shoots and is loving the mulch over wintering with the compost and manure Morgyn put over it to help it in the winter months. The Raspberries should also come back and yes we will also have more peas and beans this year.
Keep coming back to our blog to see our gardening progress!
