I'm late this morning..

Took me awhile to get this blog going..I looked up a couple of seed catalog web sites to put here.
We have to start thinking spring and planting...These two web sites sell organic seed and that is what I would recommend to plant..www.johnnyseeds.com and www.fedcoseeds.com.
Since it is hard to just plant seeds here, very short season. We have to have our plants started now.
My favorite crops are squash, zucchini, tomato, lettuce, roma beans, snap peas, cabbage red/green and potatoes. Sometimes, beets and onions..Lettuce/peas/beans you can plant again in the middle of summer and get a crop in the early fall.
There is nothing more exciting than picking your own veggies. If you have more than enough, you can share with family/ friends and neighbors..When you have taken care of everyone, you can freeze/can the rest..It makes everyone happy and will really make you happy in the winter when you look at all you save by freezing/canning some of your own food..Something very rewarding when you do this..You start to be thankful for things you took for granted.
Till next time, keep looking up..
