You must post pics when you’re done - vegetable and/or flower?

I love the heirloom varieties, and I start my own from seed.

I grow flats of flowers and veggies down in the basement, under full spectrum lights, and I use a space heater to warm the room where I have them growing. I’ve already finished prepping my flats, and my seed orders are going in this weekend.

Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds is one of my favorite seed houses. The owners are liberals, but I overlook it because they have the best of the best when it comes to heirloom seed stock.

They have three varieties of Iraqi heirloom tomatos in their catalog this year. I’m going to try one, “Ninevah” (Mosul).
