Well, fingers crossed that is the end of the snow!!! Warmer weather with rain now in the forecast.
There is an old saying
"Make new friends, but keep the old; one is Silver the other is Gold"
Unfortunately it seems not many of my old friends have been invited to my 2017 Tomato Party ........ but so many exciting new varieties to check out ...... I am still continuing with the Dwarf Tomato Project in search of cherry tomatoes - both Worry and Scary F3 are my experimental focus this year.
Anyhoo, here is my list, planted March 8th and 9th:
Not Purple Strawberry
Purple Bumble Bee
Heart's Delite Black
Dwarf Purple Heart
Dwarf Orange Cream
Worry 5774 F3
Scary 5808 F3
not Russian 117 pink
and two last minute additions:
All for now. I'll write a wee bit more about each variety once I see germination.
Also have started indoors: NC Amethyst bell pepper, Caraflex cabbage, Batavia broccoli, Paladio and Mr. Big peas. Oh, and some onions way back in early February.
Bring on the Spring!!

It has been a while, so here we are in early October and the Plot 5 Dahlias are finally taking off, but the rains have come as well .......... The purple dahlia is "Vancouver", not my usual colour choice, but this was a bonus give away from a local garden store .......
