    I'm not much of a green thumb but this year I'm going to give it a try. I ordered hierloom plum and cherry tomatoe seeds, tiny ornamental hot peppers,crazy looking long peppers, purple peppers,ground cherries, chineese rhubarb,hopefully some wild herbs and lavender. Going to dig up some of my nasty flower bushes I'm allergic too. So what's in your garden this spring?
