The Garden January 2015

As you can see there is not too much going on in the garden. Everything is covered in a thick blanket of snow and ice. It’s pretty difficult right now to picture a lush, thriving garden, but I’ve been trying not to dwell on it too much – it can be pretty easy to get depressed this time of year. I’ve been keeping myself busy with ordering new seeds (the first of the new seeds arrived in the mail this week!), taking inventory of my seed collection, and making list and schedules of things I want to grow this year. I think we’re at 24 tomato varieties and 23 pepper varieties (!!!). And even though my garden is still a few months away from thaw, the weather has been unseasonably warm this week so I’m feeling somewhat optimistic!


Have you been doing any garden planning yet?
