Last of early seed starting.
I did the last batch today, so now all my cucurbits/melons/squashes and tomatoes/eggplants/etc. are cozy in their little plastic incubators. I already can see a few germinated pumpkin seeds from the ones I planted Monday! I’ll wait until they actually sprout before proclaiming it a milestone, though 🙂 But still, pumpkins in Finland! I’m so excited.
The full spread on top of the freezer.
These just looked so cute! On a practical note, paprikas can be horribly expensive and not so fresh out here. So it’d be nice to have a supply on hand!
A smaller pumpkin, in case the big ones don’t mature fast enough this summer. No eggs in one basket here.
Another one of those “just wanted to try it” plants. I’ve seen these in the catalogues for a while and just now decided to give it a try. It’ll probably also live in the greenhouse.
I actually don’t like eggplant that much, but these looked so cute that I had to try them out. Who knows, maybe they’ll be better when they’re fresh off the plant. These will probably go into the greenhouse as well.
I love cherry tomatoes. I don’t think you can ever have too many of them, in a huge range of colors. These were a pretty orange variety with the same compact growth that I loved in the ones I had last year, so I’m going to give them a try.
I’m actually not sure why I got these, since they look the same as the Tumbling Toms. Well, guess we’ll find out!
Had these last year and they were so easy that they had to come back. Container-friendly plants will be especially useful since I will probably be keeping all my nightshades in the greenhouse this year. The Finnish summer just seems a bit too cool for their liking and I’m determined to get a huge crop out of these guys.
Watermelons! They’re horribly expensive and we love them. These could be individual serving sized!
These just looked so freakish I had to give them a try.
Another butternut! Wow, I’m going to have a lot of squash.
I’ve never grown spaghetti squash myself, though I’ve brought one home from a school garden before. I think it’s time to get reacquainted with these silly things.
