I think the zinnias are up... seed list

First seeds up this year look like the zinnia flowers.  And I am here on the last day of my weekend off going through all of the saved seeds and freezer seeds from last year and trying to see what to do next.  It is still mighty early for most things - and I hope I did not plant the beans too soon.  If I did - they were not the last ones of any of those varieties, and it can be tried again.  A lot of the seed I am listing will stay in the freezer packets.  We also like to stock up on the (29 centers) cheap seeds especially for flowers  - I grabbed a lot of the squashes and carrots and herbs that way last year - for this year - as well.

Note to self:
I need to plant the radishes all around the zucchinis this year - it was just after it became too hot for the radishes to grow well that the bugs took off in there last year.  Mark suggests leaving the last crop to bolt so the sharp tasting greens are still in there when the bugs hatch out.

I also have some lavendar and tomatoes which need to be started in the garage.  But, I am not a great one at watering seedlings when they are not in front of my face every day.  Just ask my houseplants!

These are the seeds in the freezer bucket - some are just a very few seeds, half-packets and some are what we bought last year in anticipation for this year.
