My “to do” list is overwhelming and the customers are keeping me busy (hooray!), so the best I can produce for the blog right now is photos of plants I have not grown before. I am a huge fan of pansies and they are flourishing this year.
Basil and rosemary are probably the two best selling herbs here. In the foreground of the following photo is a new variety I am trying, 'Nufar' basil. This is the first fusarium resistant variety of basil and it has a sturdier habit than the other sweet (Genovese) basil I grow from Fedco seeds.
Cascadia Bicolor purple is a variegated and vegetatively grown petunia. It scores high points for the consistency of variegation in the bloom, but the stems are fleshy and more upright than I like, so I will probably not grow this one again.
It is 5:30 am Saturday morning and I must go finish loading the trucks for St. Johnsbury Farmers' Market.
