Planning Again


Kind of excited to start my garden plan for this year. Is never written in stone and changed as I plant. This pic is the row of Marigolds I like to start with - they are just colorful. My potatoes are already "growing" in my dry heap in the "back 40". I have more success throwing generous peelings in the pile and letting them sprout. When they are about 2" high, I move them to the potato patch. The very best spuds in town, ha! Have great success with squashes of all kinds - we love Spaghetti and Hubbard. Anyway, I'm going to type up a list of companion plants I have in case it's of use to any of you folks.

Jean...do you save your marigold
seeds from your plants? In the late fall, when the flowers have
dried up, I put them in a paper
bag, leave the bag open for a couple of weeks and then close and
store. We do the same for our
tomatoes, cucs, squash and peppers.
Saves money that I can use for more
"decorative" items in the garden.
I love to put little surprises in
the garden....

Funny you mention that- last year we went on a trip and the plants were still not dried up- by hte time we came home they wwere snow-covered.So this year I pulled them up and tosses in a pile in the garden- shook them. Hope I get some as they were beauties. Thanks for the ideas.Take some pics this year, OK?
