This is the view I am looking forward to in the months ahead. Early spring, many shades of green, a lot of freshly cultivated dirt, an assortment of seeds planted in the garden, a few seedlings reaching for the sky, and visions of fresh produce by the basketful!
Right now, it's unseasonably warm and I'm thinking I should of planted something to take advantage of this crazy weather. But I know that had I planted something, the weather would not be favorable and I'd wish I hadn't planted.
So, it's almost time to start my seeds inside and I can hardly wait. It's been a crazy year for me (with my day job) and I am looking forward to a new year in the garden. It's funny how each year you start everything all over again, and I don't mind at all. I like rotating which beds I plant my different neighborhoods of crops and I like experimenting with new seeds and plants as well as trying different companions within the beds.
It's January 9, 2012, and I am starting to plan my best garden yet!
