There’s Always Time for a Quickie

There’s Always Time for a Quickie

Having just returned home from Kansas after being away for quite a while, helping a very ill family member, I find myself buried in about 7 pages of “to-do’s.”

BUT…I didn’t want to let this week go by without a bit of a “quickie” blog post.

It is hard to believe so much food can come from such a little box.

This post is a gentle reminder about one of the FUN parts of winter….planning your garden and ordering seeds!!

My package containing all of my summer’s bounty arrived while I was in Kansas. …so far I’ve been able to restrain myself from borrowing Dorothy’s “I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore”….oops… ūüėȬ†¬†Just can’t wait to sink my fingers into the dirt and plant those little seeds while thinking of all of the good nutritious¬†foods that will come of them.¬† I’ve made some changes in what I plant this year and am looking forward to gardening with an eye for massive production in small spaces.¬† I’m going as vertical as possible, using the fence around the garden to grow the cucumbers¬†up, for example.¬† Also there will¬†be even more companion gardening, as that was quite successful last year.¬† Growing beans right in between the cornrows was perfect!

If you have any great garden tips, share them!  I love to learn new ways.  ICan@bygonebasics.com

So…..plan that garden….or even just a few container gardens if you don’t have much space.¬† There’s still time to order seeds and get them growing for summer’s bounty.

I officially CAN'T WAIT for Spring now...
