I placed my seeds order yesterday to Pinetree Seeds (superseeds.com), my usual seed source (see Resources). I don’t need many varieties as I have a lot of seed left over from previous years. Here are the vegetable seeds I ordered:
- tomato ‘sungold’
- bean, pole ‘fortex’
- lettuce mix
- beet ‘red ace’
- carrot ‘Napoli’
- squash, summer ‘green tiger zucchini’
I tried ‘fortex’ pole beans last year and liked them. I ran out of seeds for ‘nectar’ cherry tomatoes (which we like) but, since this vendor doesn’t carry that variety, decided to try ‘sungold’ as it is highly recommended. The lettuce, beet, and carrot seeds are old favorites. I’m planning to try growing summer squash in pots this year, like I did with tomatoes and eggplant last year, and ‘green tiger zucchini’ is supposed to work well in a (large) pot.
I also ordered one type of flower seed to grow in a pot:
- petunia ‘tidal wave silver’
And I ordered two biological helpers:
- legume inoculant
Actinovate contains bacteria that protect plants against some types of fungus, while the legume inoculant contains bacteria that help beans and peas obtain nitrogen from the air.
