Planning, with a little help from my friends (and my husband)

By Carol Clark

For everything there is a season and this is the season for garden planning. I took out all my gardening books, seed catalogs and last years journal and I have begun planning for SPRING - which can't come too soon.

I know... I just don't like winter after Christmas. If we could just do the white Christmas and have spring by Valentines Day, I would be just fine.














MY plan is to EXPAND the garden area and plant a few fruit trees. However, I have not been able to convince my husband of this and he is my only "hired" help. For several years now we have been wanting to buy a small hobby farm. The only problem is we don't want to go deeper into debt.







He wants to wait for the dream to expand the garden. I know it may be awhile before that dream comes true so why not expand now?? So, my plan is to leave the new seed catalogs where he can't miss them. He will pick them up and get excited enough to EXPAND those garden beds!!





I am open to any other suggestions. I'll let you know how it works out.
