Tomatoes, herbs, and lettuce, planting aplenty

Today was my first planting! A whole lot of seeds (as well as a selection of Tomato Seedlings) are ready to go in the ground

I had been unsure which Tomato Variety to go with, so I took advantage of Burpee’s Tomato Hall of Fame.  This package consists of a selection of different tomato cultivars as listed below (excluding those I gave away)…
Fourth of July The earliest tomato -arrives just in time for family picnics – 49 days.
Sweet Tangerine Bright orange, firm, super sweet favorite. Great for salads – 68 days.
Big Mama The ultimate paste tomato. Enormous fruit, few seeds, profound flavor – 80 days.
Sun Gold Tangiest and sweetest cherry tomato you will ever meet – 65 days.
Brandy Boy The greatest tomato we’ve bred in 50 years. Incredibly tasty pink – 75 days.
Burpee’s Burger Early to fruit; firm yet juicy, perfect slices for hamburgers and sandwiches – 72 days.
Health Kick 50% richer in antioxidants; ideal for tasty sauces; abundant yield – 75 days.

I planted 7 of these in a row in the back half of Bed #1, and gave the other two away to a coworker.
They are looking a little straggly right now as you can see. They are planted in order from left to right as listed above.

I filled the front half of the bed with an assortment of seeds, from left to right as follows:
Chives, Coriander/Cilantro, and three types of Lettuce, (Santa Fe – 55 days, Green Ice Looseleaf – 45 days, and Burpee Bibb Butterhead – 75 days).
