Garden Planning, and Indoor Potato-Growing Update!!

Preliminary Garden Plans
Typically, February is the time when we start milling through seed catalogs, making lists and planning out our garden for the year. Thinking ahead to the Spring in this way really helps us get through those long, dark, final days of winter. This year, we are a few weeks late getting started (January and February were a blur and we're still recovering) but, better late than never, no? This past week we pulled out our Garden Notebook, and we've started a page for 2013! We're making lists of things we want to plant, and drawing our diagrams of what may go where. When making our garden plans, we always look back at our previous years plans, so we can remember what did well in which beds, what didn't, and what needs to be rotated this year. 

While all this planning is going on... our Indoor Potato Experiment continues to thrive! These things are growing like crazy! I'm beginning to think that maybe I put too many in, and they are a bit overcrowded. Something to remember and learn from for next time, I suppose! 
Potato Plants!
I am hoping to start posting more frequently again soon, as we try to settle back into "normal" life. I'm sure I will have much to write about, as this is a very exciting time of year here at The Homestead.
