I don’t know about the rest of you, but this “winter” has been such a tease! It hasn’t been very cold and there has been a serious lack in the snow department. Normally, I wouldn’t mind. However, now that my garden is set up in the back yard, I’m going stir crazy!
All I can think about is what I’m going to plant this year, the layout that I’m going to use, and how I’m going to design our now vacant front flower bed. I know what I want everything to look like in my head, it’s just transforming the idea into reality that always proves slightly difficult.
Since my salsa and ketchup turned out to be such a hit, I’m seeing a lot of tomato plants in my future. We tried corn last year, and it didn’t grow very well. So I think I may try green beans this year instead of the corn. I also considered a jalapeno plant or two. Perhaps I’ll plant some onions as well. I brought my strawberry plants from last year inside. They’ve continued to make yummy strawberries for us! I’m also trying my hand at growing a pineapple bush. 😀
All of that combined with our peach tree, raspberry and blackberry bushes, hopefully will give us a delicious harvest.
Unfortunately, I have to sit here and wait for it to warm up some more. It would be horrible to plant everything just to have winter finally hit, or a have a big freeze wipe it all out. For now, I will continue to sit here and stare longingly out the window, dreaming of warm weather and homegrown food.
