I've finished my seed selection & plan for the spring garden. Everything is now ordered & will arrive in time for me to start planting them by Feb 1st. I got a few new varieties of slicing tomatoes, jalapenos, soybeans & basil to try this year.

Spring is in the air & I'm getting exited!!!

Finished filling the peat starter pots with the soil mix. Both varieties of tomatoes & peppers, the basil & the french marigolds will be started this weekend. Everything else will be direct seeded mid-March.

Been spending my days prepping the garden to plant. Today I finally planted the potatoes & leeks . They went in late this year because of a hard freeze & then the rains made the dirt to wet to plant

After that, I prepped the area where I will plant the green onions, radish & cilantro by running the pear burner over it to kill anything sprouting there. I'll plant those seeds tomorrow.

Been a while...

We havested all the potatoes last month & processed them into scalloped potatoes that were then vacuum packed/frozen.

We also harvested all the onions last month. This week they'll be processed (diced) & then vacuum packed/frozen.

Been harvesting green beans & just eating them... same with the jalapenos.

The cucumbers have been going gangbusters & we've been giving a lot of them away. I have another 5 gallon bucket of them in the kitchen that I picked this morning.

Today we made stuffed green peppers that took every bit of the 8 pounds of sirloin that I ground yesterday. They are HUGE this year & there are many more out there!!!
