The majority of the vegetables growing in the garden are organic and heirlooms that I started from seed this spring. I do, however, have a handful of store bought plants that are hybrids.
This past winter I let a lot of the winter vegetables go to seed this spring and they took up a lot of planting space when it came time to plant the spring garden. As I harvested some of the seeds and took the plants out of the ground. At that point I wanted to add more veggies but did not have any more seedlings to plant so I decided to turn to things at the nursery.
The eggplant in the photos above was one of the store bought hybrids. I have three other organic eggplants growing, two of which flowered a few days after this hybrid and should be showing their fruit soon. It will be interesting to see how differently the two type develop.
Other hybrids I have planted include:
- cubanelle sweet pepper
- yellow bell peppers
- banana peppers
- zucchini (from a friend)
What types of plants or seeds do you grow?
