Around the Corner


It's 13 degrees outside, -1 with the windchill.  
Got the chickens all closed up in their coop and run. 
 January and February are always the dreariest parts of the winter.  
That's why I love seed catalogs. 
They always show up when you need them too
so you can plan and dream about the Spring.
So, I'm thinking about my garden.
Last year, it sort of got neglected.  I managed to fix the blossom rot problem on my tomatoes only to then have issues with splitting because of the sporadic heavy rains.
Then there were the squash bugs.
I have some ideas for the coming season-
like possibly doing away with rows and going to plant groupings instead.
Ultimately, I hope to can tons of veggies.
Here's to Spring!
