So you’re probably looking at the title of this post and thinking ‘who is this crazy woman talking about gardening in January?’ Well folks, it’s true, I am pretty crazy. But also? It IS time to start thinking and strategizing your garden for this spring and summer. Right now. Time to plan!
I am bound and determined to have a garden that actually produces something this year. I live in a fickle climate (Northwest Washington) – we never really know what kind of growing season we’re going to have. So I need to do some research and figure out what will actually thrive here. All I have now is kale. Kale is indestructible.
I’ve hit up Pinterest to find some of the best graphics and sites to help with my gardening endeavors – and I’m sharing with you all. I know we’re all on the quest for good health and eating right – and nothing is better for you than home grown vegetables. You know exactly what they were grown in and treated with – and they’re the freshest you can get.
