2015 Garden Plans
So cold ... so much snow ... hard to concentrate on gardening. Ugh!! I've got the mid-winter blues. Mid-winter?! There's a lot more of this to go still.
I have a lot of plans in my head for the spring - I just hope I can bring them to fruition.
I'm going to build a nice, big compost area with pallets. I'm going to cut down some of the steel bars left from the old collapsed greenhouse to use as support posts in the garden. I'm going to create a few more garden spaces. I'm going to pull some timber from the woodpile to frame in already existing gardens. I'm going to fill my new greenhouse with glorious plants! I'm going to have the most successful gardening season ever!!! ... Or maybe I will have mediocre results, but it will still be a lot of fun.
And it all starts here ... with my seed order. Actually, this is the total plan for the upcoming season, not just the seeds I have recently ordered.
Unlike most gardeners who plan their garden space and buy the seeds to fill out, I impulsively buy whatever interests me and then I figure out where to grow it. I have lots of space, lots of containers if needed and a new greenhouse to play with! To be honest, I'm a bit overwhelmed right now, but I'm confident it will all come together.
So here are all the plants I have planned this year and how I think (?!) I'll get them started. I'll review my plans again when I'm less muddled from the cold weather. It seems rather a large list. :)

It sounds like you have your work cut out for you this summer. I'm one of those that tend to buy without a plan. But I've done it long enough to know mostly what to buy. I always seem to buy something new each year. Sometimes they work out and sometimes not.ReplyDelete
It does seem rather daunting now that I have the list all laid out. Hmm ... I'm still so new at it everything just looks so exciting!Delete
That is quite the list...how exciting! I'm using quite a few seeds from last year so I thought that my "purchase" list wouldn't be that long this year. I've since come realize that having a short seed purchase list is practically impossible for a gardener!ReplyDelete
Same here ... I didn't think my purchases would be so much, but geez, I can't control myself. Oh well ... a bit here, a bit there - I'll get it all in the garden one way or other!Delete
That's an impressive list. I'm like you, hard to resist the catalogs. But only 3 types of tomatoes?ReplyDelete
