Spring Planting

Posted on: January 23rd, 2014 by

It is the middle of January and I am in full gardening mode!

I have been cleaning out my existing garden beds to get ready for the new season.  Usually, I do this in November and December, when things are dying back, but we had an extremely busy holiday season and I let this chore slide.

We have also taken out the tiller and been getting it back up and in running order (it only gets used once or twice a year, so it was in need of a tune up) so I can start my new super-sized garden for my miniature, family and friends, CSA.

Seedlings have been started for tomatoes and bell peppers and I’ll be starting jalapenos, tomatillos, and herbs in the next few weeks.  Already 52 tomatoes have moved from vermiculite into planting medium and paper pots to mature and get ready for moving out to garden in five or six weeks, with more than 30 waiting to get a little stronger, a little taller.

Also, I have ordered seeds, seed potatoes, and transplants for some of my other beds.  Berries will be available, soon, and I will add those to my plan and my days workload.

Is there anything more exciting that the prospects of a new years growing season?

    Hello! My name is Alex and I stumbled upon your site while doing a quick Google search. Before I get into this, I would like to complement your site on the theme that is currently has, simple yet stylish. Back on topic, I really love the posts and the quality of them, most of the sites that write about the same things that you do are very repetitive and boring. I enjoy reading your posts, keep it up. Guess that’s all I’ll be posting, also, feel free to check out my sons site if you have time (I’m still working on mine, not the smartest in tech haha :P) free dj software or if that doesn’t show up, http://free-dj-software.blogspot.com Keep on blogging! -Alex S.

    Hi, Neat post. There’s a problem along with your site in internet explorer, could check this… IE still is the marketplace chief and a huge section of folks will leave out your magnificent writing because of this problem.

    Definitely would love to start a website like yours. Wish I had the time. My site is so amateurish compared to yours, feel free to check it out: http://tinyurl.com/o55af8p Alex 🙂
