Last Sunday I had just gotten home from church when C looked at me and says “it’s February, we should start thinking about planting”. I turned to him and said “ok, we’ve got $30 to play with, lets head to lowes!”. So we did. We had some 72 well starter greenhouses left over from last year, so we bought more of those, some seeds to go with the ones we had saved, and starter soil.
That was the best feeling in the world. Last year it took us until the end of march to be able to afford to start growing. I know it made C feel good too. I also realize it’s a bit early in the season to be planting, but last year we had such a hard time getting the seeds started we wanted to give ourselves plenty of time this year to work out all the kinks. We planted 6 different kinds of peppers, 3 kinds of tomatoes, spinach, brussel sprouts, ad maybe some other stuff? Our plan is that once it starts to get warmer and we are past the fear of frost we can start planting on the property. We expect to have at least an acre garden this year. We would like to have a yield that will take us through the year.
We have been talking about these plans for so long it’s so surreal…. This is going to be fantastic!
