Many have asked about the Seasonal Plan...
We received our first seed catalogs in November. To keep us on track and build a firm foundation for The Country Gardens, we sadly put the catalogs away and focused on other less exciting aspects of starting a garden business.
No more! The catalogs are out and we are dreaming off all the wonderful options we can bring to you. The hybrids, the heirlooms, the herbs...so many choices and so little garden space!
We are looking at the wrinkled pages of old garden calendars to remember the best varieties, comparing harvest dates, balancing diversity with old standbys, determining where we can take a risk and where we need to be cautious. To some you plant potatoes, carrots, beans, tomatoes and corn. We are looking for the very best potato, carrot, bean and corn variety. And the tomatoes...we had over a dozen different varieties in our gardens last year!
We would love to hear if any of you has a favorite variety that does outstanding in Idaho! Maybe we have already grown it or maybe we should add it to the ever growing list....
