Preparing For The Spring Garden Season

The excitement I have for spring is something I can't explain. I've been waiting on spring since September.

this is from last year, these are our blueberries starting to turn colors

And yes, I know there are a few more months until Spring, but for us gardeners, this time of year is when we start preparing the garden so we can have a great spring harvest.


I've already started some seeds indoors.

my thyme and thai basil seedlings

Some of the plants will go outside soon, because they are cool weather crops. I currently have cauliflower, green and red cabbage, collard greens and more in the garden beds. I have more of those growing indoors that I will put in the garden beds after harvesting the previous veggies.

a few of the zucchini I harvested

Then those will be harvest in spring before it gets too hot. But while those are growing, I will start the summer crops, and put those plants in the garden bed once I harvest the spring crops.


You see, it's all about rotation. I really want to stay on top of it this year because I want to make sure I can store enough food to feed the family. I also want to save on our grocery bill.

these are some of my favorite harvests from last year

The wind was so bad yesterday that it destroyed our canopy. It is definitely a goner.

So on top of cleaning up the yard and extending the garden, we are going to build a pergola to replace the canopy. We have a lot of work to do, but it will be worth it. Watching your own food grow and then eating it is one of the most amazing things I have ever done.
