as some of my readers may know, i moved into a house last july. the previous owners had a tiny little garden in the back yard with tomatoes, herbs, peppers and lots of pretty flowers. i am a city girl, never having had green space of my own. i thought annuals meant that they only bloomed once a year! ha! so when i found out that all of my vegetables that died were not coming back i was so sad. i didn't get to plan out the garden last year, but this year i can and it is the perfect time to start your planning. lettuce and a few other things can even be planted very soon! i found some great vegetable garden designs via domino. (yes, so sad it will be no longer soon!) get to planning guys, even if it is just a single pot of herbs. i feel with a weak economy that people are going to try to be more self sufficient. vegetable gardening is such a great way to start.
i also read up on doing a garden journal via journallife. it's a great way to keep up with plants and what works/doesn't work. you can keep little pockets of seeds with photos to what they go to or just jot down your thoughts. old school blog style!
