It’s hard to believe another new year is upon us! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. I have been gardening the past few days, planting more broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage seed. I also planted some tomato seeds, preparing for a spring garden. The broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage seed were planted directly in the ground, the tomato seeds I planted in cells to start indoor. It’s not too late to start lettuce, chard, carrots, spinach, cilantro, parsley, kale and arugula.
I also started a worm farm that I received for my birthday!! Here I am just over a month out and have collected some “gold”, worm castings for some of my plantings!

Planting For Fall 2014

YES, it is time to start getting ready for Fall planting!  You can get a head start on your Fall garden by planting seeds of summer squash (zucchini & patty pan), winter squash (butternut & pumpkin), cucumber, gourds, okra, radish, basil, amaranth, just to name a few.  Some plants are even available at local nursery’s.  (Remember to shop locally!)
