The vegetable garden is a good place to discuss diversity and inclusion. My mailbox has already been flooded with seed catalogs from several different companies. I enjoy looking through them for new vegetables that I may want to try in my vegetable garden this year. I plan to include at least one new variety to see if I like it better than the old tried and true varieties of the past. Sometimes they are standouts and sometimes not.

I love to look for new varieties of tomatoes that will stand up in the heat and humidity. The problem though for most gardeners is that seeds come in large numbers and need to be started as early as February in some cases. If you have extras, you may want to consider sharing with some of your friends and neighbors who garden as well. Include them in the trial of the new variety and see if it’s just you that has success or if the variety works well for everyone.

I think I’ll also look for a different variety of garden pea and maybe a more heat tolerant variety of beets. I’ll be able to start the peas at the end of January and the beets won’t be far behind in February.
