As the days grow longer and the winter begins to wane, farmers, gardeners, and beekeepers alike are all gearing up for the growing season ahead. Like many others out there, I have been eagerly planning my garden for the 2016 growing season. More than ever before I am determined to grow as much of my own food as possible─not only to live more sustainably, but also to stretch my bootstrap budget as far as possible.
I’ve ordered my seed-potatoes and onion-plants early, and placed orders for the few seeds I needed/wanted that were not already part of my extensive seed-inventory. One of the perks of working for Johnny’s Selected Seeds is coming in to work to find my order waiting on my desk. Yay seeds!
