What am I going to grow this year?

The last couple of years, I’ve been getting my all my plants (flowers, herbs, vegetables, etc.) from a local greenhouse down the road from my house.Well I’ve come to the realization, that I’m at the mercy of the greenhouse, and whatever they grow. So if the greenhouse doesn’t grow it, I’m left to buy whatever they did chose to grow.

So this year, I’m going to do it differently. I’m going all the way and starting all my plants from seeds. So far I’ve spent about $50 for seeds, soil and starting trays. Which is around what I would usually spend on all the seasons plants. And this way I still have all the trays for next years plants.

Here is the break down of this years plants:
