|Tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and tomatillo|
|Weld and chamomile|
Other veggies I will plant this year are corn, squashes and beans. The strawberries that I planted last year from seed are doing well and are growing already, even though the weather has been fairly cold. The salad garden that I planted in March is up as well. I'm still waiting on the asparagus and horseradish to sprout. The rhubarb is growing (I planted more too). The grapes this year seem to be holding off, which is good considering they usually sprout leaves and bunches well before the last frost date and get frozen. Hopefully they hold off a little longer. We still have until mid-May before planting time.
I have a ton of plants for dyeing too. The Calendula is already planted and growing outside. Madder, weld, indigo, anthemis, coreopsis, calliopsis and dahlia are some of the others. I'm sure some of these won't fare as well as others but it is experimental so we'll see.
