Typepad kept me from seeing these comments for ages! I'm sorry I'm late in replying.

Lauren, I thought about a salad table too! I live in Slug Land, and growing them directly in the dirt means I would never get a single bite. Container gardens are so much fun and so easy, and I found that certain things do even better in containers than in the ground - Peppers being one of them. They like to be planted in duos, and their productivity soars. Same with the smaller tomatoes. Did you buy plain potting soil? That is what I used last year, before reading that it was a bum idea, but you know what? All my container plants flourished and produced.

Kat, I wish I knew! I'm not from/in Spokane, just threw that out as as random PNW city. I'm sorry.

TBean, they're so good right now. So long, so so long and soft. I read all the reviews and people are pissed about the lengths of everything, but I LOVE it. And tomatoes - okay, so I bought a few new packets of seeds, a few new kinds and then I was like "I should just see if last year's are viable!" so I started every kind I had, at least 3 seeds of each (a rule I followed, and now wish I hadn't). Now it is crazy. I will only end up planting what I have room for, so like six tomato plants and then give away the extras. I'll post the list of everything I started soon, but Green Zebra is on there, so is Pink Brandywine, most of the stuff I planted last year, and some new ones I'm REALLY excited about - Carbon, which is this big 'black' (smokey purple) tomato, and then this Italian paste called Canestrino/Canestrano. I want to get my sauce on this year.


Missed the posts and the recipes!
I had big plans to do some gardening this spring. Ordered seed books, looked into csa's, thought about getting/making a "salad table" but in the end it looks like I'm just going to try some containers. I bought some tomatoes and lettuce but the wrong kind of soil -not potting mix so heading back to lowes
I keep trying yoga, it has yet to become a regular thing maybe one day.


Please tell me where to eat when I'm in Spokane next, after driving there from Seattle I need some grub!
