Some new additions for this year. A few seeds are being recycled from previous years. Nothing too fancy. In fact it is back to basics for the peppers, no fancy varieties that put form before function. Back to basics with some filler plants like marigold , dahlia and nasturtium as well. The abundance of lettuce simply reflects the idea of a DIY vertical planter system that will be populated entirely with lettuce and chard initially.

Will be more rigorous with the fertilizer this year. Last year’s green manure experiment didn’t quite work as intended in the sort of plant cycle that I’ve got so this year it’s mostly horse manure.
Also very excited about some new pole bean varieties but I will move back to the wigwam model again instead of long rows of poles.
Hopefully the tomatoes I picked out will be almost as good as “Sun Gold” but more manageable. “Sun Gold” was almost too sweet for my taste (not enough acidity?), and grew to unmanageable heights (should have cut back) plus the inevitable skin cracking with the skin being too thin.
