Seed Catalogs and Fantasies
The first seed catalogs have already started to arrive.
I usually don't start getting them until January.
These seed catalogs start a chain effect of activity here. First I start planning, then I start planting shortly after holding the first catalog in my hands.
I will probably start growing lettuce in my living room window very soon.
My plan is to grow more squash, melons and pole beans this year in my garden. I will start eradicating chipmunks early this year so they don't destroy my crops like they did last year. Of course with my luck, there will be a new pest destroying the garden next year. In 2011 it was rain, flooding and a gazabillion snails. 2012 it was chipmunks and the drought.
What were your biggest challenges this past summer in your garden ?
Are you already receiving seed catalogs?
Which ones are your absolute favorites and why ?
Which 5 veggies are you going to try or increase in your garden this year ? and Why ?
Got any plans to plant fruit trees or berry bushes ?
