It's That Time Of Year Again
One good thing good about living where we do is we have at least seven greenhouses around us that grow starter plants. Some, even grow heirloom plants. We are good friends with a couple that own one of these greenhouses. We get GREAT deals on our plants. If there are certain kinds of plants that we want, we just tell them. They will grow it for us. Now I could start these seeds, but I'm supporting a local business plus, they do a REALLY good job a starting seeds. Since they have the greenhouses and they are all temperature controlled, they can start earlier. Another good thing is they are only 3 miles from our house. It's nice to have friends in "green" places. lol
So in the next few weeks, I'm going to try and figure out what kind of veggies that I want to grow in our garden. I do this by thinking of things that I want to preserve through the summer. I'm thinking tomatoes, of course, cucumbers for pickles, onions and corn. Those are the basics. We still have tons of green beans from last year so I think I'm not going to plant them. That is unless I want to sell them. A half a bushel of beans sold for $37.50 last year. That was the lowest price that we could find. Cha Ching!!!!Haha! I'm sure I'll be planting other things too, just not sure what yet.
I also want to plant some herbs. But, these will be planted in either containers or my herb garden that I'm planning on having started. That is, if I can get a fence put around it. Jack is beginning to be a pain. lol. Well, I was wanting to do it anyway.
So, I'm going to dream away about my busy spring coming up. I just hope I'm not dreaming too big again. lol. What are you planning on planting in YOUR garden?
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl, once again, dreaming.
