The planting season has begun in our corner of the country.
We are declared officially frost-free as of May 31, but we have always put our seeds in the ground a week or so before that.
Once they all start coming up it is usually after that date anyway.
The plants will be going in the ground next week.
And what a batch a really beautiful plants we have this year.
My daughter started the tomatoes, eggplant, and basil from seeds a couple of months ago.
She only purchased the Heirloom variety seeds, and we are so excited to see how they produce.
She was very careful to watch out for those GMO ones - we are trying to stay away from them as much as possible.
She has some Quarter Century tomato plants, and they are the sturdiest, greenest, healthiest looking plants I have seen in a long time.
The plants are off to a great start and my fingers are crossed for a good growing season in the garden too!
