Today the house has been cleaned from top to bottom, the dinner is well on its way to being finished, and I have a few extra minutes on my hands. I decided to start an inventory on my seeds and make my list for my seed order. I want to place the order in the next few weeks. I know I have enough broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower seeds to get started planting. I am so missing my fresh veggies. I had no idea how much I really depended on them to round out our meals. I also am going to start more lettuce in our makeshift greenhouse. I want to be ready to plant when the weather is ready. I have set a few garden goals for our little farm this year. First is that I want to plant potatoes. I want a large patch of Yukon Golds. This doesn't sound difficult, but I always manage to miss the planting season. The other goal is that I want to plant Sweet Potatoes. We have never grown sweet potatoes before, but I figure that they can't be that hard. I also want to grow our own corn this year. We have done this in times past, but the last few years we have bought corn from a local farmer. His corn is grown organically and it is wonderful, but it does cost a lot of money. I could plant a lot of corn for what I pay him to raise it for us!
grace and peace,
