Let’s Get Growing – West Coast Seeds

As I count down the hours and minutes to spring, I am already picturing my garden boxes and planters overflowing with fresh vegetables and a few berries too.

This year, we plan to get started much earlier with Cantaloupe Seeds. We started some mid-summer last year as a replacement to greens that had finished, and got to the flowering stage before the heat gave out. So, we know we can produce some melons, but with an earlier start.

We also had an abundant tomato crop last season. Several varieties gave us fresh tomato’s until early December, with the last of them ripened on the window sill. But, how we enjoyed that last homegrown fruit!

Learning from our mistakes last year, we’ll do a few things differently this season.

Green peppers did extremely well, as did cucumbers, salad greens, and green beans.

White Salad Radishes also did well, carrots and peas, not so much.

We’ll go forward with what worked best and hope we can increase the amount we put into the food basket this season. Half the fun is getting ready, and we’re almost set now with our West Coast Seeds in hand, our starter pots, soil and some heat domes covering to ensure as early a start as possible. We’ll check in again mid-season and let you know ‘what’s growing’ in our garden. Meantime, most Nutters stores now have a good selection of West Coast Seeds in stock ready for the taking.
