It’s April second and there’s snow on the ground. Temperatures are below normal. I’m usually well into garden clean up by the end of March and I would have some pansies in the ground. Snow is in the forecast for next weekend as well. It’s snowed in April in the past, if I recall correctly, as late as April 10th. But I do not like it…not one little bit.
Some of you shared with me previously that you were starting new/revamping old gardens or renting a community plot for the season. Now that you have a season or two under your belt, I would love to hear how those worked out. What was successful and what do you need to rethink?

I received zero feedback 📝on my anniversary blog improvement post. Not what I was hoping for. So…time to move on…
July has not been kind to the garden. Most plants don’t like living in 100 degrees. Especially when the lady goes on vacation and they don’t get watered. Some of the crops bounced back and some Continue reading “August Garden”

“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” Proverbs 19:21
It’s been a month of winter gardening and things have gone surprisingly well. All of my cool season crops are in the ground either with a cold frame or on their own. We had some snow yesterday, so I put some hoop houses with a frost protection fabric. Continue reading “Winter Gardening: March Garden”

I made my seed purchases today. I have some seeds left from last year as well. I plan on starting cool season crops earlier this year.
I also need to start figuring out how to make a sturdy fence around the garden to keep the deer out that can also be taken down at the end of the season for easy clean up and preparation access.
So what am I planning for this year? Continue reading “This Year’s Garden to Table? Garden Plans Underway.”
