All gardeners love to receive their seed order! Even more so when you're planting the first outside garden in many years.

In the video below I share a seed unboxing and talk about the varieties of vegetables I will soon start to to grow into sets.

Vegetables To Be Planted In 2020

If you're new to this series, I've finally found a place to garden. Ultimately, I want my own rural property, but for several reasons that isn't possible yet. 

However, I'm happy to have a place to garden outside. Microgreens and indoor gardening will still be a large part of my life and business, but adding my own fresh vegetables and selling the extra excites me.

The first article in the series can be read by clicking this link, or you can see all the articles in series by following this link.

Below are most (I give myself permission to change things) of the seeds I'll start to plant in the market garden during the first wave of planting.
