    Decided to head back to the store tomorrow, and double the amount of seeds I already have. I'll store them for next year, 'cause you just never know if you'll be able to find them next year ...

    We've started everything inside this year also, it's been unusually cold with the frost coming and going as it pleases, but we've wanted to get a start on everything so we can have plenty to can.

    made some gardening decisions

    If only it was nice enough to actually START gardening! It's still rather cold out.

    Going to plant 3 fruit trees- dwarf apple, dwarf pear, dwarf 'fruit cocktail' tree (apricots, peaches, nectarines, plums) Those will be planted near my vegetable garden, which I've decided to move a bit in the yard to take advantage of full sun. Planned a place for my compost heap.

    I'll also be purchasing a dwarf orange tree and a dwarf lemon tree. These are potted, but they'll be nice on my sunny front porch during warm weather, and can live in my livingroom during cold months.

    I might do some strawberries in containers on the back deck.

    Hubby is really balking at the idea of raising chickens, but I've kind of scoped out a place for them when I've changed his mind for him. ;)

    Veggies, I've decided on corn, cauliflower, spinach, green beans, peppers, carrots, broccoli, tomatos, cucumbers, onions and potatos. I'll get the seedlings started in the house, then move them to a little plastic greenhouse, then get them in the ground in May.

    I don't expect anything to be able to be done around here until late April, but I'll take plenty of pictures then.

    I'm hoping to dehydrate and can a bunch of fresh fruits and veggies, then next year go bigger and better and add some berry bushes.
