Again this year, for my birthday, I have asked for a present of labour from my sons and SIL. I want 6 more raised garden beds. My two gardens produced enough, last year, for the odd meal...and no more. I have decided that I will plant one or two crops at the most per bed, and hopefully I will be able to preserve something for the winter.
The seeds I have are getting old and I am not sure how good they are now. I visited this site and decided to try winter sowing. I set to work washing containers. (Now I have a use for those plastic containers that are used for roasted chickens.) I will puncture holes in the bottom and fill them will soil, and when I have sown my seed, they will be placed outside in the snow. This project excites me!
I am feeling tiptop lately and find that I have more energy. I have busied myself with cleaning house and closet. Spring MUST be on the way!
Is there something that you are looking forward to?
