This unseasonably warm weather AND the fact that General Beauregard Lee predicts an early spring for us in the south, has me thinking that I don’t have as much time as I thought to plan my garden for this year.
I don’t want to complain, but I didn’t even have a chance to read my favorite Little House on The Prairie book “The Long Winter”. Which I re-read every year on a really cold and snowy day. Who knows….maybe the weather will change. But just in case, I think it’s time to look at my seed catalogs and plan out what I’m going grow this year.
As some of you know, I enlarged my vegetable garden area last year so I have to build some new raised beds and plan out how I want it to look (besides deciding what to grow). Isn’t the potager from Mias Landiv the most gorgeous vegetable garden ever! I love looking at her garden photos – they’re so inspirational!.
I was working out in the cardio theatre of my health club a few weeks ago and the movie was “It’s Complicated” with Meryl Streep, Alex Baldwin and Steve Martin. O.K. movie but what struck me, besides the gorgeous house, was the beautiful LARGE vegetable garden she has! To die for! Everything is so neat and tidy!
I’m looking at some of my past gardens to decide what worked, what didn’t and what new thing I want to try for this year.
I’m so inspired to make this year’s garden better than last years.
Since I get so many gardening questions, I thought I’d start a little “how to” series next week. So if you have any gardening questions you’d like to see me answer (I’m not an expert but I have been growing vegetables for 15+ years), ask them in the comments section or shoot me an email. I’ll try to answer them and if I don’t know the answer, I’ll try to find someone that does.
As for today, I’m out moving this pile of wood chips into the paths between my raised beds!
