The Bare Beginnings

Long time, no post!

I've just had too many other things going on in my life, like starting a new job, Christmas, etc. Things are mostly going pretty well in life.

As for my winter gardening activities, they wound up being reduced to growing garlic to be dug up in the Spring.

But the arrival of a seed catalog two or three weeks ago has gotten me thinking about my garden again. In fact, I started my first seeds today! 2 Red Robin tomato plants, which stay small enough to keep inside until after the last frost, and 8 Pink Brandy Wine tomato plants, which I was determined to start extra early this year because last year's P.B.W.s didn't produce until the Fall. They may be leggy by the time I put them in the ground, but I'm willing to dig deep if it'll earn us earlier slicing tomatoes.

I've started planning the dates to start other seeds and have decided on asking Chad to build me at least one more Square Foot Garden. I look forward to getting m y hands in the dirt again!

Oh, long time no post. Good to see you back and can't wait to live through you with your gardening. I so miss having a garden of my own. Take care and cheers to a new year.
