OK, I'll start this one.....I ordered some non GMO/heirloom tomatoe seeds this spring, and will have some to contribute next year.
I will also have some non GMO/organic peppers/4 hot, 1 sweet, onions, carrots, Silver Queen corn, beets.....that is if it all makes. This is my first garden. Wish me luck.
what tips can you share about collecting and saving seed for next year?
What a year! So weird.
Good Grief Everyone! I am harvesting on the solstice. So far we've got 5 "Cherokee Purple" ( one of which could be also known as a whopper) and a good healthy start on the "Krims." I've gotta post some photos.
Hey Spencer, I would like to get some of your tomatoe seeds. A guy at work was talking about purple tomatoes and i thought that you would have them. Also i have some room to put out some indian corn. if you dont have my address let me know
Cherokee purps are pre-blooming!!!
BTW. If anyone wants some Indian corn, I have tons. (Sorry I know this is not the seed x-change but thought I'd ask.)
Instead of mixing my own, I buy "Happy Frog" potting mix(organic) and a product not to be confused with the chealeted iron turfgrass supplement called "Roots". Roots is also an organic option. The downside to not being a fan of the trace heavy metals and other weird compounds found in your more common Miracle Grow or Shultz products, is the "heavy" cost of the mix. Roots goes for about $20/ 1.5 cu. ft. bag. The Happy Frog is only a buck or so less. I will, however the cost, endorse these products. If you'd like to try one, my contact at Trinity Hydro-organics, "Jon," also carries smaller quantities at very competitive prices. And the insight from just the small talk while inside his establishment will more than cover the cost difference of the inferior "big-box-store" poison that some feed their crops...., and eventually family...
Both, traditionally for a "bigun" like "Cherokee," the good 'ole ground would be ideal. We haven't much actual ground to work with, this said, I am using square 2-4 gal. pickle buckets that will bee neatly arranged in rows, not a lot of root room, but should be ok. Most of my stuff will be in these, of course, small herbs and shade tolerating species can go anywhere. I got this idea from indoor techniques that utilize any and all space saving methods of cramming them all in.
Spencer, are you going to transplant them or keep them in the pots? I thought i was getting mine potted up early by doing them this week. WOW your on top of it!
