Day 77

Its time.  Our new heritage seeds arrived and its been 6 weeks since we planted out last seeds.

To keep in rotation of our grow beds to ensure we have a continuous crop we decided to pull out the zucchini, the squash and a few other things.  Its so easy and fast to just pull out old plants and put in new seeds,

What I did find in the midst of it all was our eggplants.  No fruit though as I think the plants were not getting much sunlight so I've kept them and transplanted them.  We'll see what the do and if the continue to grow.

So tonight we planted a mix of heritage seeds including Aquadulce Broad Bean,  Purple Podded Pea,  Purple Dragon Carrot, Medio Enana de la Halle Brussel Sprouts,  Cherokee Wax Butter Bean,  Red Russian Kale,  All Red Leaf  Amaranth,  Superschmelz Kohl Rabi,  Autumn Giant Leek and Sicilian Violet Cauliflower.  Its going to be great growing some of these things we've never seen or eaten before.  

We once again mixed the seeds up and scattered the all around.  We are finding its a great way of deterring in pests and helping the plants stay stronger.
