Daffodils started blooming this week, and the weather is starting to warm up ever so slightly. I am thinking of the garden...
I want to plant a little bit of everything and a lot of a few things. Including:
Beans of every kind, especially dry beans
Herbs, and lots of them
Potatoes, white and sweet
Popcorn, no sweet corn this year
Winter squashes of every variety
And lots more, I'm sure; that's just what I can come up with a quick spin through the alphabet. I don't know if I will get it all in the ground, but I'm sure gonna try.
Seed starting has been on my mind most today. Primarily, how exactly I am going to do it. My efforts last year were all a flop, so I am back to the drawing board for now. I have a cold frame in mind, hopefully built out of some old windows I will find for free somewhere...
Notice all those tomatoes on there? It is a goal of mine (and always is, although not yet realized) to grow and can enough tomatoes so that we don't have to buy any all year. We eat a can or two a week usually, so I figure I need about, well, a lot. I have high hopes that this is going to be the year.
