It’s Official

January 8th, 2014

I guess when I pull out all my seeds and start going through them the 2014 garden season has officially begun. This is what my coffee table looks like at the moment. I’m being ruthless about what seeds are getting sprouted for chickens and which ones I’m going to actually start this year. No doubt my seed order will be minimal this year in hopes of finally whittling down my seed stash.

I’m also going to be simplifying what I plant a little this year. There are loads of garden chores that need done, and I’d rather spend my time preparing new planting areas for future gardens than tending to a huge variety of vegetables. That’s my main goal for this garden year.

How do your goals for this garden year differ from the last?
