February Seed Shipment

It has been extremely crazy. So when my February Shipment came in- I got a little excited! I am hoping to find the time to plan some garden space this weekend. Also to plan how we are going to build raised beds- or if I am going to till and go straight into the ground. It looks like we will be doing a little of both!

My shipment was awesome- I love tomatoes- and Tooty can’t wait to plant the flowers. More basil- I am excited about turnips- and fennel. And the fava beans remind me of Silence of the Lambs- so I may just have to plant those! Tune in for a future post- I may be doing some seed sharing!

January Seed Shipment

So we are all planning gardens- I am a little late on my planning. My 8 to 5 has been hectic so I am not able to do my planning like I normally have been. It has been extremely crazy. So when my January Shipment came in- I got a little excited! I am hoping to find the time to plan some garden space this weekend. Also to plan how we are going to build raised beds- or if I am going to till and go straight into the ground.

I was very excited about my seeds this month- the peas look so delicious, and watermelon makes me think about summer! I know the chickens and we will enjoy that harvest!

Now the herbs- I can’t wait to try my hand at these- and look into drying them so I can store my own and not have to buy them anymore. Parsley, oregano, and basil- something we all use- and brings together a great Italian seasoning. I am planning my herb garden tonight as I lay awake thinking about harvests. I have a spot laid out- I am going to measure it and then plan which methods I am going to use. After the plan is together I will be sure to share. Maybe someone can hold me accountable!

Thanks Mike the Gardener- I love my little package I get every month! Something to definitely look forward to!
