Hello from the IL/Wis Boarder

Post  Countryprepper on Sat 08 Dec 2012, 4:23 pm

Hello everyone. I thought I would introduce myself rather than just come in blindly to the forums. I am gardening in zone 5A and started gardening off and on a few years ago..I thought this year I would start my square foot garden...Ya right!!! Nope the drought had better ideas for me..so hopefully next year will be better..so this winter I can look for heirloom seed that I would like to add to my garden and seed storage.
I'm not much of a crafter but would like to take up one someday.What I do enjoy doing is bird watching and pretty much anything outdoors,genealogy,cooking/baking and canning,traveling.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
CountryPrepper.

Welcome to the forum CountryPrepper. I am also in zone 5a here in Maine so we have the same crop choices, except we don't get the droughts you get in your area.
Get your seed catalogs and start marking them. In Feb you can start things like broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower seeds indoors. It seems we have a longer growing season lately with later last frosts so I take chances and start a bit earlier, but have blankets, covers and the like to protect if a frost shows up.
You'll find lots of help here if you need any.
We love pictures, so get your camera ready to post your garden shots when spring comes. Good luck.
