Finally, the garden is planted. Last year I had almost everything planted by the second weekend of May. Not so this year. It’s just been so darn cold. But finally, on the 25th, I got all my little plants into the ground.

Every year I say I’m going to cut back, then I run over to my neighborhood nursery, Minnehaha Nursery, and all hell breaks loose. Again, I barely had enough space, and I think I have a large garden for a city lot.

Anyway, here’s a list of what was planted:

Herbs include basil, tarragon, parsley, cilantro, dill and sage. My chives and mint came back from last year (is mint supposed to do that?)

Vegetables include three heirloom tomatoes (Mr. Stripey and Green Zebra, because I liked the names, and Brandywine), cherry tomatoes, early girl tomatoes, yellow pear tomatoes and three peppers (jalapeno, anaheim and yellow wax). Oh, and carrots in the carrot box.

Because I have to do something new every year (last year it was kohlrabi and sugar snap peas), I planted Thai Eggplants, bush cucumbers and by seeds, bush green beans.

I’ll post about the garden as it (hopefully) begins to grow. We’ve got more sunlight this year since our neighbors cleared their lot of trees, now we just need some warmth! Is there such a thing is a “warmth dance”?
