Let the Planning begin....
Aaron and I have been chatting a bit about how we plan on setting up the vegetable garden this year and what we want to grow thistime around. We plan on doing things a bit different than last year; last year was our trial run. We haven't come up with a concrete plan yet as we are going to share with a neighbour and so we need to chat with them as well. The neighbour had the idea that we come together and grow different things and just do a swap at harvest times... we of course thought it was an excellent idea. I know we want to do some sore of sauce tomato for canning. We received a bunch of mason jars of all different sizes from a friend of mine and se we plan on doing some caning thisyear with many of our vegetables. I am excited to see how our plans come together. This year I think we will yield much more from the vegetable garden since we should have more time to keep up with the maintenance. We have many seeds left over from last year that should be fine for planting this year so we won't need to purchase much aside from things we didn't grow last year.
I didn't post any of the photos I took last year of the seedlingsand such so here are some from
