Ordering seed for winter planting

msmorningsong(SW FL 10A)June 15, 2014

I just ordered (Johnny's Seeds) French melon Savor, Bibb lettuce, Brandywine tomato, Nelson Brussels sprouts (on sale, only 1.50 pkt!) and Flavorburst Bell Peppers for my fall planting.

I'm wondering if any one else is ordering their Fall seed now, and if so, what they are going to be growing?

I didn't pick out any peas because I haven't grown any in so long I don't know which ones are the best. Any suggestions would be welcome, I love peas and really want to add them to my garden this year.

I grow Sugar Snaps (also 'Super' Sugar Snaps). They have nice long vines & no waste.

& thanks for the reminder - I need to do my ordering soon, I thinkâ¦..

Has anyone tried Sugar Lace II? I'm curious as to how well they do in FL.

Ahh, Sugar Snap, that's one I remember that I love, yumm!

No writersblock, but I might try them along with Sugar Snap,
we can compare notes on flavor.

I plan on about 6 raised beds built this Sept., and wait until about October/November, depending upon Mother Nature; to start planting out certain starts.

Peas, of course, could go into late December here, if it's anything like last 'winter.'

I agree with Carol about the Super Sugar Snaps, stalks 5-6' vs. 3' with the others, many more peas but you have to use tall stakes and tie them well or they will break over in the wind....Only two pints of pickled tomatoes left, then on to the pickled Super Sugar Snaps :-) :-(

tomncath,
I would love your recipe for pickled peas. I've never tried that!

I'm a simple fellow, I don't have canning stuff, just the jars so I refrigerator pickle everything. The jars on the right are upside down because I prefer the wide mouth jars so I turn them over every day or two for 10-14 days to assure that all the veggies are exposed sufficiently to the vinegar mix to prevent spoilage. This is the mix I use, makes great pickles out of anything, my fav is pickled okra, one of the few things we can grow here in the summer :-)

Wrong link, sorry. This place is about half the shipping cost of the other...I usually buy 6-12 packets at a time to keep the total cost down.

You won't be sorry, this refrigerator mix is far superior to the refrigerator mix put out by the folks that are famous for their jars ;-)

They have Mrs. Wages at Wally world, too. You can get them in store for about the same price, or you can order a 12pk case for less than $40 with site to store pick up and not pay shipping. ;-)

(Ask me how I know... LOL)

Is that more than 12? I get 12 shipped to my house, including shipping for $28.

Wally World isn't always the cheapest ;-)
