Gardening preparation

butternut

I’m missing my garden. It’s winter and I’ve not grown anything since late October. I love to garden. It makes me feel so amazing to grown and prepare my own food. I’m one of those people that live in a subdivision and dream of owning chickens (don’t think I’ve not looked into I have! ) Here’s what I’m doing now to get my gardening fix. 

Planning and purchasing my seeds. I always try to buy the heirloom seeds. If you buy any other seeds at any  store there’s a huge chance you are getting GMO seeds. I do not want modified seeds. I purchase my supplies from Territorial Seed Company. 

Planning what I want to grow and when I can put it in the ground. I would love to be able to plant a cold crop but it’s just not very easy to do here. Plus it’s too much wear and tear on my poor hubby’s body. So here’s what I’m planning to put in the boxes that are cold crops. I’m going to plant some cabbage, kale, and turnips on my back deck. Then in May when I can put it in the ground I’ll plant tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers, squash of all kinds, watermelon, peppers (bell and banana), basil, zuchini, carrots, onions, celery, broccoli, spinach and whatever else I can think of. I’m hoping this will be the year my raspberries really produce. 🙂 I’ll let you know. What do you like to plant in your garden? Are you trying anything new this year?
