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!
I want to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season!
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!)
