  1. Impressive list!! Looks like a fun and BUSY season ahead. Sure do hope you get plentiful moisture this year.
    Happy planning and enjoy the quiet before the gardening season begins.

    1. Some items will probably get edited out as I go. I need to order some things, but want to scan the seed catalogs some more in case there is something new I just have to try. Ha! All my winter squash died last year. Not sure why. They take up a lot of space. After awhile I just kind of let them take over. So, I need to do some planning on where everything will go.

  2. WOW! Happy Gardening in 2016.

    Love & hugs ~ FlowerLady
