Seeds, glorious seeds

It’s official.  The order is ready.  Tomatoes (six varieties including Green Sausage – new to me!) snaps, herbs, ground cherries, kale, cukes, lettuce, beans.  All the good stuff and a few experiments to boot.  Plus – for the first time – ALL BLUE POTATOES!!  Finally.  I found them at The Maine Potato Lady  I’ve been looking for an organic blue variety and there it was!  It’s the little things that make me smile! 

I’ll be heading out to the barn today to do some preparations.  Although our garden beds are covered with four inches of heavy white snow, I’m getting ready anyway.  Not only am I excited to begin planting again, but I need the extra barn space for the TWENTY chicks that will be arriving this spring.  This will be our biggest homesteading adventure yet.  Particularly because these twenty cuties will be living indoors with us until they are ready to move to the barn.  I hope they like our porch.  And I hope the dogs like them – just not too much!

Keep checking for my next installment – Sheep Shearing 101.  Should be interesting since I can’t even cut my daughter’s bangs in a straight line!
