I'm just wondering what's actually coming up in mine. no planning this year. just through it in.
i'm usually trying to work several years or plantings ahead in my plans too. i don't want to risk all of certain seeds on a single season's efforts/weather - especially when i might have only a few seeds and no way to get any more that i can predict (like when i have a new bean cross show up).Accomplished a couple of things today. It was time to give the big dogs their Ivermectin heartworm treatment. They didn't love it - but its done now. I use .10 of a cc per 100 dog lbs of straight Ivermectin for a heartworm prevention. So much more economical than the vet prescribed drugs.
Got more tilling done in the garden. I'm worried about the health of my tiller... it goes great guns for awhile and then it really needs a break. That's ok - I need a break too. But, I got some beans planted! YaY! Noticed that I got in about 4 miles worth of steps today. Guess going around and around behind the tiller adds up, lol!
Anybody else thinking about next year's garden? I'm working on a seed order that will be, for the most part, for next year. I generally save a bunch of seeds from year to year - but "justincase" we have a bad garden year - I want to be covered. A big portion of my seeds are several seasons old so this is a CYA situation.
Still living in a half-demo'd house and getting quite accustomed to it. At least it doesn't matter if I clean lol.
Much of my seed is old too. I planted some, some came up, some didn't. I NEED a good garden this year. I have cases of empty jars! I love mustard and turnip greens, I have always frozen them. I think I'll try canning them this year.
