Garden Planning - Seed order

The planning and preparation for the garden production season is proceeding. Designing new gardens has been fun, and getting house projects done has been necessary, but the production garden feeds us and helps pay the bills so it deserves a bit more attention.

The seed order has been in for a while. Anticipating its arrival is always fun. Here is what we ordered from Johnny's (we order the bulk of our seeds from Johnny's. I like the quality, service, and their stuff seems to do well in our climate.)

That's a LOT of seeds! Should keep you busy for a while. Hope you get great germination.

Like Jodi, I was going to say that's a LOT of seeds. I won't change it though because, it is, indeed, a LOT!

A lot of work too. Hope you have a good, enjoyable and productive year.

Do you have a Rogation Festival where you live? (Like Harvest Festival only for the beginning of the season - the sowing of seeds instead of the harvesting.)

It is a LOT of seeds. I'll be busier than a one armed paper hanger come spring. Some of the quantities are also quite large, but that is to accommodate all the successions. Most of our salad items will be planted about every two weeks to keep high quality products available for the farmers market all season. The flowers, peas, beans, and carrots will also be succession planted.

Don't have a Rogation Festival here that I know of. Something I should explore for the future.

Wow, you are going to have a magnificent garden this year! And...not to be too whiny here, but I wish you had included what type of vegetables you have ordered. For example, I have NO idea what any of your veggies actually are, except for the "onion collection" - lol.
