YES!!! It's time for T on Tuesday again :)
Or coffee as it's what's being served here today :)
Also showing one of my favorite gardening books. Which I have been re-reading this month to brush up on what all I have to do to be ready for the new season. The journal shows one of my faces for 29 Faces in February which I'm trying to keep up with again this year. So far so good!!!
Mini and I checked out the flowerbeds today and things are kind of confused out there with all of the warm weather we've been having.
The Daffodils are up and getting tall...
The Live Forever's are popping out....
The Bee Balm is waking up...
...and the Iris are saying here we are too!
We didn't take any more pictures but there was lots of stuff growing out there already.
I've been working on getting the milk jugs ready to plant in this week. I was really hoping for colder weather so a few will have to go in the spare fridge downstairs in it's freezer as those seed do best when frozen before sprouting.
Here's some of last years jugs ...
Only part of the ones I did. This method of seed starting has worked very well for me the past 3 years and each year I try more kinds of seeds this way.
I ran across an interesting photo of an old
"Victory Garden " garden layout plan that was provided by the government during WWII . Encouraging everyone to grow their own food.
This was a plan for a pretty good sized garden to feed 5 people. I may use it as a guideline for some of my planting. The short season lettuces and things like that.
As you can tell, I'm ramping up for full time garden season and it will be here soon :) Maybe sooner than normal if Mother Nature keeps the heat turned on.
Today's Random Thoughts
Now dash on over to Elizabeth's and see what everyone else is up to this week!
