I helped start seeds today in the seed room and was amazed at how many different peppers and tomatoes we started (along with everything else). It was interesting to read the seed packets and daydream about what all could be done with them once they're ready to harvest. A few that linger in my mind are; chocolate sweet pepper, hot pepper mix, fish peppers, sungold cherry tomato and the orange banana tomato. I started picturing the market stand in my mind....and thought how cool it will be once everything is ready. I also started thinking about Dylan's seed addiction, and his ability to choose the most random varieties of plants...but I decided to leave that alone, since it really seems to work for us here at 47 Daisies.
Once I got back to the house and started entering the numbers into our spreadsheets, I found some amazing statistics;
-We have started 3164 plants to be transplanted already this season
-We have 20 varieties of peppers
-We have 12 varieties of tomatoes
-We have 77 different varieties of plants started...these include flowers and herbs
And those numbers are just for the seedlings from the seed room! This does not include seeds directly planted into the ground, seed potatoes and our existing plants (like asparagus and garlic).
Kind of crazy, and very cool...all at the same time. We definitely have variety.
Dylan and Harmony, whichever of us have the time to sit down and write for a few minutes. : )
