Winter Wonderland

Hello Everyone, 

I hope your holidays were wonderful and that you are enjoying winter! Wishing you all a beautiful, fun and fulfilling 2014!

It feels like ages since I posted an update here. Currently the garden is tucked in, and resting under a thick, white blanket of snow.

I on the other hand am not so good at resting. It makes me antsy. So, I am busy planning, brainstorming and dreaming about the upcoming season. So many ideas are churning and I look forward to sharing them with you soon.

Seed catalogs are arriving in the mail daily and making me so very anxious and excited for the growing season to arrive. 

I had a funny dream the other night. In said dream, it felt like I blinked and it was suddenly May 1st. I had been so busy and distracted that I had completely forgot to seed my veggie starts and did not have anything ready to transplant! I woke up in a bit of a panic and was delighted to realize it was January 3rd, not May 1st. Whew! Note to self, draft seed starting calendar ASAP. 

Alliums (onions, leeks, shallots) will all be seeded very soon. We are hoping to experiment with seeding some of these in the greenhouse beds, letting them grow until April/May, at which time we will dig them up to transplant outside and make room for peppers and tomatoes in the Spring. I love experiments! 

CSA Members, please let me know if you have any special requests this year. Did I miss a vegetable that you would have loved to see in the shares last season? Comment below or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you. 

Have a lovely day!
