So, here is a look at the plan for the new beds this year. I still have the same bed on the side of the house as last year, but I will be changing up what is planted in it a little. I am moving the watermelon to the top of the hill with some winter squash and other melons.
Tips on seeds: I bought a LOAD of seeds last fall when the local plant places were about to close down for the winter. I bought most at something like 80% off! Crazy deals, and a lot of them were heirloom. I stored the packets in ziploc bags in the refrigerator and they have been happily waiting until now. I also got wind of an awesome company called Burgess Seeds, which is where I have purchased most of my other plants or seeds. Their prices are just completely unbeatable! I absolutely recommend you check them out before heading to Lowe's or your local planting place. Their shipping is a flat $9.95, which is crazy for the amount of items I just bought. I was super impressed with their seed availability, as well as the other plants offered. I hope that helps offer an economical way to get your garden started this growing season! Remember, "Sluggards do not plow in season; so at harvest time they look but find nothing" (Proverbs 20:4). No matter what size your garden is, now is the time to start planting (whether indoors or out) and getting your ground ready for the coming plants. If you have had great success with your garden, please share! We can all use the encouragement...I know I'm still a newbie with gardening, but I just love the experience of getting intimate with God's creation! What a blessing.
