one step closer...

Well, I did it.  I stopped by one of my favorite nursery stores (Wiegand's) and bought veggie seeds for our up-and-coming veggie garden!  YAY!

I think I got everything that I had on the list.  All seeds were 50% off and with every 2 packets you purchased, you'd get a free packet of miscellaneous seeds.  That meant that I didn't have to purchase any tomato seeds, cuz I got a free packet.  Also got a free packet of pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds, then a packet of flower seeds.

Thinking about garden markers and I think that I'll have Jerome laminate the seed envelopes (at work) and then I will punch some holes in the bottom and use the little plastic sign holders that you find on your lawn after Scott's has come and sprayed.  I have a ton of those because I was collecting them for when we plan a road rally and we need to indicate where the next clue is located.

It will still be a while before we are able to begin construction on our garden since we still have a good 12"  (or more) of snowdrift in the garden area.  I really hope we can concentrate on this project and get it done in time for me to plant and for us to harvest (whenever that may be).

This is exciting! Good idea for the laminated markers! Show us when you get them done!

I think veggie gardens this year will be a very good idea.

I look for veggie prices to be sky high because Japan will need veggies and I understand the severe cold has put a squeeze on veggies here in the USA.

Your own veggies are always the best and the healthiest.
