This year, I'm excited about 'Woodle Orange' tomato from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. I've read so many good things about this heirloom variety... early cropping, great taste, round perfect globe fruit, brilliant tangerine color. Already, they are in their their Big Girl pots, and others, OSU Blue, Wentzell and Mortgage Lifter are lined up waiting.
Radiator Charlie who developed the Mortgage Lifter. Listen while he tells you how he developed it and the story behind it.
A plus in the garden, are the hardy salad greens we are harvesting. You will need a fleece or cold frame/row cover to protect them at night but goodness...they've made big strides. One of our last sunny days, showed the growth this variety 'cool weather' mix has already produced.
Although some folks like to just grow flowers and others are purely food focused..we grow both and couldn't imagine it otherwise. Flowers attract all kinds of beneficial insects and birds that help the vegetables prosper. Bulbs are making a show...amazing the structure and power of this Hyacinth pushing through the soil.
Hope You're having a Great Gardening Day
