Seed to Seed

Like so many others, it seems my thoughts have turned to the anticipation of warmer days of Spring and the opportunity it offers to get out and get in the garden. There have been moments when cabin fever has threatened to overwhelm me but I have tried to take advantage and make the most of the down time. It has offered me the opportunity to really get out and evaluate my soil and the lay of my land. This winter I have put more effort in planning for Spring planting than I have in any winter before. I have come up with more concrete goals and devised the steps I need to take to make those plans work.

You may have noticed this little button in my side bar~~

It is a growing challenge that is being hosted by One Green Generation. The rules are simple:

1. Plant at least one new crop from seed, grow it organically, and save the seed to plant next year.

2. Check in here when I post Seed To Seed or
Growing Challenge posts (more or less once/week). Or if you have your own blog*, you can write about your gardening there instead – or in addition. The point of #2 is to learn from one another, inspire one another, and build our growing community. So please share questions, thoughts, and discoveries as they come up.

3. Sign up in the comments!

So I'll keep you up to date on the progress at least once a week.

See this little grassy hillside? I know it doesn't look like much now, but I have big plans for this little spot.......

BIG plans! ~Rhonda

Girl you inspire me. We have a garden spot we have done in years past. It isn't large so we never have room for much. Im thinking with the economy like it is we may need to plant more.

We got some of our seeds just last week. I will be interested in seeing how you do with seed to seed. It sounds difficult to me and I'm a farm rasied girl!

Good luck with the planting, Rhonda. Can't wait to see what you have planned for the hillside.
