It's still January, its cold, snowy, and sometimes feels like the sun and warm weather will never reappear. But, this is the time for planning and making preparations for the growing season.
New seeds have been ordered and delivered. Rough garden plan has been drafted. Planting times have been outlined. And as I write, Paul is building a place in the basement to start growing some plants indoors to harvest before spring. We have also been enjoying reading the book, "The Market Gardener", gleaning all tips we can for improving our garden.
Preparations for the new chicks are well underway. The brooding box is built and ready for the new chicks to arrive next week. I will be traveling tomorrow to pick up our bulk organic feed supply.
All of these preparations make me hopeful and excited for the new growth and sunshine that will come in just a few short months. So what are you preparing for?
