The garden club at Silas’s school has an annual seed sale.

The seed order forms came yesterday. Joy!

Last year I put in a small raised garden bed. I got it planted late, and the growing season here is only 10 weeks. Not ideal conditions for a bumper crop.

We still got a row of green beans, lots of lettuce, cilantro and basil, a few small tomatoes and a couple cucumbers and baby carrots.

The pumpkins didn’t produce anything. Lots of flowers. No fruit.

The broccoli and the spinach didn’t do anything either. I think they got too much shade from the beans and tomatoes.

This year, I think I’m going to have to double the size of my garden bed.

My picks from the school seed list are:

  • Sugarsnap peas,
  • Green beans,
  • Cucumbers,
  • Spinach,
  • New England Pie pumpkins,
  • Yaya carrots,
  • Lettuce,
  • Broccoli,
  • Basil, and
  • Cosmonaut Volkov Tomatoes

Makes me happy just thinking about it!
