The Seed Catalog

The seed catalog has arrived and it is much bigger than I thought it would be.  It is going to take some serious reading to figure out where we are going with this.  I am also attempting to find straw bales as we are going to use those as the borders for the planting beds.  Found this tip on and it makes sense.  You use the bales to hold the garden together, but the bales also compost themselves into the soil.

In the meantime, I found some pretty good prices on organic produce at the supermarket.  I don't really go there very often but it was on my route today and we needed some (rbst-free) milk so I wandered down the produce aisle and was pleasantly surprised.  Some of the organic stuff on special was less expensive than the pesticide-laden food.

While trying to plan our garden, I am in the midst of my daughter's dance competition season and trying to work out a daily, monthly, annual marketing plan for our store, Super Suppers South Bay.  There are a few other things going on with work that I may be able to write about later that are taking up quite a bit of my time, too.  But, I know that this garden will be great for me and my family and I am hoping we will have a bountiful harvest.

Food for thought...a garden is a great leap of faith and I am jumping in with both feet.
