I started seeds today:

Tomatillo ‘Toma verde’

‘First Lady’
‘Fourth of July’
‘Green Zebra’
‘Bloody Butcher’
‘Early Girl’

I choose tomato varieties from the seeds I had on hand, based on the number of days from transplanting till harvest. All of these varieties mature in less than 60 days.

Cherry Tomato

Some flowers:
Mexican Torch, Tithonia rotundifolia – This fits well with the garden colors
Balsam, Impatiens balsamina – a double Victorian variety called ‘Camellia-flowered’ because I couldn’t resist. I’ll plant it under the rain barrel spouts. It’s a brightly colored tropical annual – maybe it will coordinate? We’ll just have to find out.

Alpine Strawberries ‘Baron Solemacher’

That was all the space I had in two 72-cell trays.

About Mulysa

I love my work as a landscape designer and artist. When I'm not planning homesteads or working in the studio, you'll find me hiking, photographing, gardening, baking, cooking vegetarian meals with friends, reading and working on sustainability issues...with my baby on my hip in Portland, Oregon.
