my seeds arrived this week from Territorial Seed Co. this is my first year really planning out my garden. last spring and summer we were still building the boxes, so i didn't know what i had to work with until it was there. this year i have written out a 12 month garden plan. i placed one big order of seeds and won't need to get anything else, other than a few cherry tomato starts. i'm really excited to start planting! the first batch of seeds go into the ground in a week or two: snap peas, shelling peas and spinach. i can't wait to start checking for them to come up every morning when i go let the chickens out into their run.
i see a little hand that is especially excited to have some broccoli. alas, that broccoli is for overwintering next year...
also, i'm going to a gardening class on saturday that is all about planning your garden. i feel like i have a good idea of what i want to do, but i'm sure i'll learn more tips that will make this year even better. if you're in town, come check it out!
