Trick or Treating in University Heights

Halloween is almost here, which in our neck of the woods means it's about time to venture a visit to our neighborly Norbert the Dragon...

Seedlings For the Fall

Beans & Peas


Brassicas (broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts...)

4 seed trays of 72 seedlings each equates to a lot of veggies... too many to fit into our garden. One entire tray is devoted to tomatoes: Cherokee Purple, Beefsteak, Black Krim, Sweetie (cherry), Garden Peach, Martian Giant, Black Plum Paste, Brandywine & Tigerella varieties. What to do with 72 tomato seedlings? Another tray is all legumes: Alaska, Progress #9, Wando, Green Arrow, & Mr. Big peas, as well as Kentucky Wonder, Contender, Blue Lake 274, and Romano beans. I love the names of all the different varieties, and can't wait to compare the results once they start to produce.
