There is so much to process when you have had your life turned upside down from a weather disaster. But one thing I don’t want to do is live here with one foot down the road. I need to BE here.
So I am.
Here is my January garden. I managed to get a hoop house put up earlier this month during a warm spell. 4 x 20 feet. I’m getting ready to get in there and plant some spinach, carrots and lettuce.
The green patch you can see on the left is wheat that I planted to give the ducks and geese some forage. We moved the duck house, and sold the ducks and geese.. but I’ll be adding some this spring again. I’ll probably till the wheat under, unless I decide to see if I can get a little, bitty wheat crop going on.
My fenced garden plot is 40 x 60 feet, which is huge. I’ll be planting a full garden this year with lots of flowers.
Seed Savers Exchange has a Garden Planner that is awesome. Let’s see,
raspberries, potatoes, sunflowers, zinnias, spinach, zucchini, summer squash, tomatoes, cosmos, strawflowers, head and leaf lettuce, corn, butternut squash, peppers, cilantro, brocolli, basil, oregano, carrots, and who knows what else.
I can hardly wait.
