What's Your Winter Gambit?
Finally got busy today doing my winter planting. Kinda different this winter, because the splashers have completely taken over lettuce production - I usually have 2 AG's dedicated to lettuce, and a third to winter flowers...

Flowers - because winter really needs brightening up - mimulus still growing well

Lettuce - replanted 5 splashers worth - more than enough, and still have 2 going from last batch

Tomatoes - Aerogarden slicer tomatoes still going well

Eggplant - planted a fairy tale today

Cukes - socrates and korean white

Weird Greens - a new midget choi, and "water spinach" - member of the sweet potato family

Got an awesome catalog from SeedsNSuch.com - cheap seeds and cheap shipping. I ordered 8 packets for $20 shipped, including (ta-da!!!) a 45-day self-pollinating cuke, 30 seeds for just over $2! Self-pollinating cuke seeds usually cost like $6 for 10 seeds, plus too much in shipping... They carry a vast selection of tomatoes and peppers (even the infamous hot Red Peter Pepper ) , plus 3 cantaloupes and 6 cuke varieties, yet one of their cukes is that one. I like them! So in a few weeks, I'll plant a new cuke, and some 12" potted cherry tomatoes, and a pepper, probably.

What are you growing this winter?

There's a lot to be said for taking your time deciding, and doing less over winter... I tend to go overboard, and then there's too much to keep up with.

 I'm still deciding. I've got the tomato and basil in the AG's. I know I'll be doing a couple of cucs. I need to set up the grow area. A couple of fluorescent light fixtures went out this spring. I'll probably do peppers, too. Depends on how bored I get this winter :-)
