Before I put in my seed order, I thought I'd better have a look and see what I've got leftover from last year. Here's what I found. (Clockwise from left)
1) French Breakfast Radishes (Scheepers)- these were one of my favorite crops last year. They were sowed early, nice tasting greens when young, and I always leave a few in so I can get some seed pods too. Definitely planting again.
2) Tricolor Bush Beans (Renee's) - these are leftover from some that I planted with my son's class in the school garden. I may plant a few, but as fun as they are to grow, beans just aren't my favorite thing to eat.
3) French Crested Marigolds (Saved) -Part of an experiment. A bunch of these were left in the garden to see if they'd re-seed themselves, too.
4) Echinachea (saved) My first time saving this kind of seed. Will try in my perennial/wild flower patch and hope for the best. May try starting a few indoors.
5) Painted Lady Scarlet Runner Beans (saved from Scheepers) Vigorous! Pretty flowers, but not edible. I'll only plant this if I have extra space. The variegated seeds sure are pretty, though.
6) Morning Glory (Burpee Heirloom) Since I have more vegetable garden space below, I may try some of these on a trellis on my deck.
7) Gooligan pumpkins (Scheepers)- the tiny white ones. Not nearly the yield I'd hoped. I think I got a total of 6 from 5 plants that took up lots of space. May try them at the school in June if extra space is available.
8) Windowbox Basil (Renee's)- I may start this now in a little flower pot inside.
9) Kentucky Wonder Bean (Lake Valley Organics) again, beans are just not my thing, but these shot up really high planted in an earthbox on my deck. Lots and lots of beans from these. I pickled some!
10) Zucchini (Burpee Hybrid) - the location I picked for these last year was too shady, so I'll try them this year in the new beds.
11) Moon Shadow Purple Hyacinth Bean (saved from Scheepers) It took them awhile to appear, but these were some of the prettiest flowers in my garden last year. May combine them on a trellis with Morning Glories.
Now I can start looking at the seed porn (catalogs!)
