Yes, I realize it's January.
Yes, I realize it is way too early to start gardening.
But I am excited! I just got a chunk of the local Community Garden! Actually 2 chunks. 2 - 7'x14' chunks with a 3' space between them.
Here's my dilemma. What should I grow? There are so many things that sound yummy that I want to grow. So here's the list. Anyone have any recommendations?
I am planning on getting seeds from Reimer Seeds, anyone have an opinion on them?
Butternut Squash (these are seeds I saved but I got some to sprout by accident so I figure they will grow)
Larger tomatoes (seeds from tomatoes from last summer, who knows what will grow)
Bell Peppers (these were seeds I saved, not sure if they will grow)
Daffodils (have bulbs)
Here's the list of stuff I definitely plan on getting seeds for:
Sunflowers (Mammoth Gray Stripe)
Here's the list of other stuff I am thinking about:
Some form of Onion (undecided here)
German Winter Thyme
Mint (not sure if I should do peppermint or spearmint)
Pear Tomatoes (red or yellow or both)
Mountain Sweet Yellow Watermelons
Yellow Doll Watermelons
Blushing beauty sweet peppers
Giant Marconi Sweet Peppers
Sweet Banana Sweet Peppers
Imperial 45 Canteloupes
Honey Rock Cantaloupes
Some form of corn (any recommendations?)
Some form of lettuce
