We love to start our plants from seed. The main reason is because it is so much easier on the pocketbook. Since one of the benefits of growing your own fruits and veggies is saving money, we felt like the most responsible way to do that was to buy seed and instead of plants. I invested in a variety of seed from Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company. So, in February, we started several varieties of peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, and ground cherries. I haven't tasted ground cherries before, so I will have to let you know how we like them. They are closely related to tomatillos, but are sweet and can be made into jams and pies. I also started some asparagus plants that need a permanent bed. Hopefully, I'll be able to get that done soon.
I CANNOT wait until I finally get my first tomato sandwich of the summer. YUM!
