Garden Mapping

It's nearing the end of January, and our table has had a pile of seed catalogues with pages marked for some weeks now.  We make our annual pilgrimage to the Guelph Organic Conference at the end of the month, and like to buy most of our seeds there directly from the growers.  We've also had good success with seeds from High Mowing Seeds in Vermont, a small company with great ethics (100% organic and non-GMO) and beautiful selection exceptional greens and unique heirloom varieties.   We have also saved some of our own seeds for planting so each year our needs for purchasing decreases somewhat, as our own get established.

For the locals - please take note to SAVE THE DATE - our 11th annual Organic Seedling Sale is set for Saturday, May 18th from 9 am-12 noon.  More details about plants and vendors to come... (on blog and website).

As we were working on our garden plan and seed lists, our daughter made her own garden map.  She has her own small plot in the yard where she can plant, tend and eat what she wants.  She cut out pictures from old seed catalogues and mapped out what she wanted - this year her garden map has strawberries, corn, beans for climbing on the trellis, and lots of flowers, plus stepping stones and a log for sitting.  We'll see if we can make it all happen!
