It's that time...

One of my favorite winter milestones: time to order the seeds! Even though the process is one we've been perfecting for a few years, there's always fresh research and thought that goes into each year's selection.

A very good site to check out: Say No...

If that doesn't give you plenty to think about, then try a different train of thought: How much?

Actually, since we are playing ketchup, the order has already gone out. We kept the total well under the usual $200 with lots of seed saving and keeping an eye out for free seeds (lots of friends at Cooperative Extension and Master Gardeners).

Now all we need is Spring....

I am still in the experimental stage to see what grows best in my area since this is my second year here.I saved seeds from everything that did well last year.My goal is to save seeds from everything I possibly can!
Good luck with all your garden plans this year!

I have lots of pretty colored post-it notes all over a bunch of seed catalogs. Not sure on the cost yet but I think I have too many tomatoes and squash types and I am determined to grow good cucumbers this year!!!
