... and not of the unhealthy variety.
These came a couple weeks ago and I've been itching to get them started. But it's still early yet. Couple more weeks and I can probably start them inside so they're ready for mid-April planting.
Not pictured are the Truffle Tomatoes (really excited about this hybrid) that I ordered plants for, instead of seeds. I tried doing the tomatoes from seeds last year, and they just wouldn't grow, so I figured I'd allow myself for a head start by purchasing the plants themselves. They get delivered closer to actual planting time, so I'm pretty excited about those! Also, I've decided to grow some herbs - parsley and cilantro, because I use them the most in the kitchen (and I hate when I buy a bunch and it goes bad before I can use it all!).
Any helpful gardening tips? Last year, I ran into the problem of squirrels digging in my soil (fixed that by putting some racks in the soil - unconventional, but hey, improvisation never hurt anyone) and ants. I'm trying to stay as organic as possible, so I didn't use any pesticides last year.
