Right now I am pretty much planting plants I can get locally and some seeds (like for beans, carrots, radishes) buying Heirlooms. I am playing with growing some seeds under grow lights so I can get a better start next year and buying Heirlooms through Southern Seed Exchange. My fall crop will be heirlooms from them. I do have a Cherokee Purple tomato started though, which is an heirloom and Super Sweet 100 which is a hybrid. Also have some volunteer tomatoes from last year (surprise me!).....

The Hugelkultur thing. The bottom half of my two feet deep beds is wood from the forest. Stuff with nice deep roots sucking up minerals from the ground and I will keep mulching with woodland leaves as well. Also got some organic cow manure. ....
