I went to an heirloom seed festival this weekend (I'll share more about it soon) and picked up some seeds for our garden this year. I'm devoting the first part of my week to getting my sunroom cleaned up and getting my seeds planted. I'm totally a learn-as-you-go type person, so in my first year of gardening last year, I kinda just bought some random stuff and stuck it in the ground. I ended up moving plants several times because I was learning along the way, but it was still a great experience. This year I've got books and notes and I intend to plan out my garden a little better. We are adding a third garden box so I can fit all of the green things my heart desires (we ran out of room last year!). I know you don't always have to start with seeds, but I'm excited to start some of my garden bounty with seeds. We grew our cucumbers from seeds last year and they went crazy!
I wanted to thank everyone for commenting and sharing about garden things last year. I learned a lot from you guys as well, so I'm asking: do you have any favorite websites or books that you'd recommend for (smallish) gardening? I want to soak up all the growing knowledge I can! I'll report back soon with my garden plotting notes!
