Garden Daydreams

January 16, 2014

We had a little garden last year – our first attempt at getting to know the New England growing season.  The first thing we learned was to let go of all the timetables we had grown up knowing in more southerly climes.  Memorial Day can still be a touch early for planting here.

This year we will start some things indoors and probably buy some plants from the local nursery.  It is all so new to me that the entire endeavor is an adventure.

Leeks!

Knowing that we don’t know how much gardening the Kettle Slayer will be able to do, I am not planning on a larger garden.  Just some kitchen-y things.  We’ll add flowers as they catch our eye.

I’ve been sketching out plans, making lists of supplies, and today I ordered the first batch of seeds.  A retired work colleague has offered to be my garden hotline for whatever questions may arise.

Any other New England gardeners dreaming about spring?
