2012 Our first Veggie Garden



Today I'm going to start keeping my garden notebook online. Instead of buying a new notebook, I'm going to blog about my garden! I found last year's seed packets (2013) from our fist veggie garden so I'm going to start off with a list of last year's seeds any notes I have about them.

All of our zinnias bloomed beautifully. I loved the Candy Cane mix with the stripes. The Cut and Come Again Mix bloomed and bloomed. The more I cut the more they bloomed.
Zinnia Giant Flowered Mix
Zinnia Peppermint Stick Mix
Zinnia Cut and Come Again Mix
Zinnia Candy Cane Red on White
Zinnia Green Envy

Marigold French Dwarf Double Mix -lots of flowers
Sunflower Summer Cutting Mix -planted too late. Didn't bloom.
Sunflower Mamoth Russian -large beautiful blooms and seeds for the birds.
Genovese Basil -The best tasting basil plant.
Pumpkin Small Sugar -planted too late.
Large Bottle Gourd - takes 130 days till harvest. Plant earlier than July next year.
Sugar Daddy Pea- cool weather crop. Next year plant in fall instead of July.
Carrot Kaleidoscope Mix- Next year don't plant so deep. That's why they didn't germinate.
Squash Waltham Butternut -it runs instead of bushing so don't so close. It needs more room.
Clemson Spineless Okra -great. Need to plant again next year.
Blue Lake Green Beans-my favorite of all the veggies.
Zucchini- not sure what variety, package wasn't labeled. Next year find a more disease resistant variety.
Straight Neck Squash- next year find a more disease resistant variety.
Jubilee Watermelon- grow great until the deer ate it.
Ornamental gourds- so cute and perfect thanksgiving centerpiece. Plant again next year.
Hales Best Cantaloupe- didn't grow well, need to research why.
Early Italian Garlic- planted in the fall. Will harvest this spring.
