My Friday evening was wonderful planning and dreaming. I have a pretty good idea about changes I want to make with the "hardscapes," paths and structures in the garden as well as perennial plantings.
I'm working on my vegetable garden plans this week. A little here and there as I find time. I want to narrow down my decisions and order some seeds soon. Our local extension office has a list of vegetable varieties that do well in our area. I consult the list each year. We haven't liked some of the choices on there, so they've been scratched; and we've tried varieties not listed and had good luck with them. I'm doing better at keeping track of the varieties we like so I can plant them each year. I'm compiling my list and will share it with you soon.
This is the vegetable planting calendar that accompanies the vegetable varieties list. Some vegetables aren't represented and I've found I have good luck planting peas again late in the summer for a fall crop, but it is a great place to start. You plant during the time the boxes are white and harvest during the time the boxes are black. As you can see, there is no vegetable gardening in January, February, November or December.
