2014 Seed Order

The 2014 Seed order has been made and soon the selections will arrive.  I always like to see which one gets here first as I order from companies that are on both the East and West coast.  The Wisconsin company is the slowest and will take almost 2 weeks to get here?!  Below are the selections for this season.  I did go through the old seeds in the garden box and disposed of anything that was more than 4 years old - except for a mini-white zinnias that (are I forget how old ) still seem to germinate - no not a 80% but I do get plants.  
I think we are looking at experimenting with herbs this year as demolition of the greenhouse is in the plan and so seed germination might be tricky if I have to grow and demolish in the same place - time will tell on that one.  But even if the seed list seems extensive - we will have less of many things this coming season - tomatoes for one, and cucumbers for another.  So take a look and post a questions as to reason for selection and I will try to explain.
Happy Gardening
