First seed order arrives

My order from Pinetree arrived.

redbor kale
fringed formula kale mix
sweet success cukes
copra onion
red wing onion
white sweet Spanish onion (backordered :-( )
Hungarian yellow wax pepper

esprit mix penstemon
Digitalis excelsior hybrid
crazy daisy chrysanthemum

I'll sow the onions right away in the basement.  They should be large enough to transplant out in April.  I'll also sow a couple of the kales now for spring greens but save most of it for late summer so I'll have kale over winter.

The penstemon and digitalis will provide early forage for the bees as well as give the Spring garden color and vertical interest.  The crazy daisies?  Well, they're just for frilly fun. And lord knows I need a little more of that around here! :-D
