Tiny Tomatoes - I am going for the exotic choices for tiny tomatoes this year - sun dried and gourmet cherry tomatoes. Last year I grew only the red cherry tomatoes - way too traditional and boring!

WHAT ABOUT MONSTROUS AND CLIMBING SPINACH? First of all, I think Spinach is hard to grow. Last year, I started growing Monstrueux de Viroflay from Botanical Interests and had some success in the Spring. The plant is considered monstrous because it can grow to 18″ tall and 24″ in diameter. . .

ZUCCHINI OR SQUASH? SUMMER OR WINTER? When you go to the grocery store, you typically find that zucchini is green and squash is yellow but there are exceptions of course! You will see that there are many varieties if grown from seed. Technically, zucchini is a type of squash. While there are many winter varieties, I typically grow just summer ones. I may try some winter varieties next year. . .

Tomato season is wrapping up and its time to reveal my favorites! They are all new plants that I grew from seed from Botanical Interests. . .

SWEET SCALLIONS! Scallions are also called green onions and bunching onions. They are young, mild onions with a long, thin white or red base that has not yet developed into a bulb and long straight green stalks that look like chives. .

What better way to get a variety, then to use a variety seed pack. See what types of lettuce to grow.
