Yeee-haaaaw! I am so ready to get started! This is the time of year I get all fired up and start planning and preparing my garden.
All right-- before I begin, let me say a word. In my opinion my garden is small. Some folks may think it is large compared to their 4x4 plot, some folks may laugh and think it is as tiny as a fairy's garden compared to their 2 acre plot. Whatever you think, well, that is what you think. But however small my garden may be, it is still preparing me for something bigger. I have learned so much, and, ya know, ya have to start somewhere. :) I will be posting quite often about the garden, especially come March, April, and May. :)
OK--here come my plans.
Oh, "DS beside a variety or plant stands for "Direct sow" and "SI" stands for "sow indoors"--at least that is what I use. :)
Proposed Garden Plans--2009
-A few new hybrids
Herbs (SI) and (DS)
-Basil (Lemon, sweet, Genovese)
-Mint (spearmint and peppermint)
-St. John's Wort
I have ordered most of my seeds, but there are a few I am still looking for. It can get hard finding all the varieties you want if you are only looking for organic. The best site I have found with the largest selection is Peaceful Valley (www.groworganic.com) Their own organic seeds were fairly priced, and I got a good discount, but their "Seeds of Change" organic seeds were expensive. If anybody knows of any other sites I could look into, I'd love to hear about it. :)
As soon as my orders arrive, I'll be starting my eggplants. Yay!
