Seed Order

Just completed our 2011 seed order. Like last year, we went with Fedco for an awesome variety of seed AND free shipping, bringing the cost of everything below to a whole $36.
Here is our seed order:

Left over seed from last year:
Red Russian Kale
Dragon Langarie Beans

Lavender

We’ll be picking up our seed potatoes, onion sets, and starts of eggplant, tomato, cucumber, and peppers locally, as well as our strawberry plants and raspberry canes.

We have some new layout plans for the kitchen garden and will hopefully be utilizing a community garden plot for our storage and space-intensive crops like squash, potatoes, and onions.

Also have some chicken home-improvement projects that we’ll be diving into within the next few weeks. More on that later.

Hoping to do a lot of food preservation this year. Bring on the growing season!
