Weekend Assignment: Gardening????

Whether you plant your garden in pots, raised beds or in a traditional row garden ... whether your garden is small or large, this is the time of year to get your plan together.

What are you going to plant?

Where are you going to plant it?

When does it need to be planted?

What seeds do you need to purchase?

If you're a gardener, that's your assignment, plan your garden!

  1. Hi Patsy!
    This is a good assignment that time of year is creeping up on us. I am not sure if we will have as large of a garden this year or not? I have already inventoried my home canned goods and know what we do and don't need, but having extra never hurts either way. Cabbage is the one thing I really need a good crop of this year for sure. I have a few seeds I may get, but for the most part we have quite a bit.

    1. Vicky, We're in the process of deciding what we need to plant and where to plant it. Tis the season!

  2. Patsy I planted out corn, spring onion, beetroot, rocket and bak choy seed. All had started to come up. When I went to water last night, all the corn was gone along with most of the beetroot and bak choy. Our neighbour behind us has been having problems with rats in his chook food. I think the rats may have visited for some fresh green shoots. Not happy!

  3. tomatoes, peppers and herbs are definitely on the garden agenda. One year we canned over 25 gallons of tomato juice. I dehydrate herbs. If we have a mild winter the parsley and Rosemary will last the winter, but we had a rough one this year, so I think I will have to replant those. I need to check on the Bee balm, Lemon Balm and mint for teas. Still need to do some cleanup and repair work in the garden.

  6. We staked out our garden plot at our new homestead. I have seeds germinating and herbs ready to transplant. We are off grid so will need to water when the solar panels and wind generator are going . I don't think it will be hard .

  7. Oh how fun! I have lots of seeds. I am hopeful I will have a community garden
    spot this year. If not I will do more planting in pots.
    Blessings,

    1. Patti, we have raised beds, a row garden, plant things in pots and are slowly moving toward landscape gardening (planting garden seeds in and among the landscaping). There are all kinds of ways to garden!

  8. I have all my seeds sorted out and was all set to start off the first February lot last week (I do moon gardening so certain types of seeds have to be planted on certain days), only to find I was out of potting compost. Ooops...

    1. Allegra, I had forgotten about moon gardening, I did it once and had good results. Thank you for the reminder!

  9. Planning and starting seeds is all we are able to do for now, we got another inch of snow today...argghh! I admit I am ready for spring this year. I do the usual every year (tomatoes, beans, lettuce corn etc.) but every year I try something we haven't grown before. This year I think we are going to do spaghetti squash, we will see.
