I’m looking at seed websites and getting a tad bit overwhelmed, but that’s good.  It’s causing me to really think through which veggies I will plant this year.  For the first time, I have actually drawn up the crappiest representation of my yard and am planning on where to plant.  I am rotating everything this year, like I’m supposed to.  I am going to try to plant extra zucchini, melons and cucumbers this year and hope those squash beetles don’t come back this year.  I had big hopes and dreams of making my own spicy pickles last year and they flew out the window with those stinky, stupid bugs.

I might just get bold and scan my very interesting yard drawing.  I am debating on doing the companion planting that I did last year, but my husband was NOT a fan of the flowers.  I might do the companion planting sparingly.  Still no sign of the turtle that I neglected to write more about last year. If he comes back I’ll throw a little blog party for him.

I have big expectations for our garden this year and for the blog.  Heidi is about to start a big yard renovation and she promises to blog about it.  On a side note: we are staying in this house so I can focus solely on this yard which is exciting.

Development

We have been given the opportunity to take up a great deal on a bigger house.  The house is fantastic with great views of the empty mesa behind it, and yet only one thing makes me not want to leave this house that we’re in….my garden.  Now, I don’t have the most fabulous looking yard by any means, but it is extremely functional for our lifestyle and for my veggies. I feel like I’m starting to understand my garden beds.  So we lie in wait.

The good thing…the new house doesn’t have a very landscaped yard, so there is room to work.  It looks like they tried, but didn’t have a “plan.”  Now I am faced with the question of whether or not to begin prepping for this backyard or to prepare more of a container garden approach for the new yard.  I’m in the mood for the challenge and it would be great to blog about starting another yard from scratch.
