Just drew my SFG plan and started arranging the squares. This year I am changing locations for everything and redoing the trestles to other boxes. If you can see anything from a poorly shot  photo I have a long way to go.

Most of my plan is: snap peas. Tons of 'em. Grew plenty last year and, as is usually the case with tomatoes, it's never enough because I'm a complete fiend for 'em.

Our weather is so incredibly volatile lately (and kinda always, but that's another story) that I'll definitely stagger my plantings.

Okay, peas and lettuce and mustards. Oh, and I've already got some purple sprouting broccoli overwintering, so hopefully it will continue to survive the weather and give me something nice come spring.

Come summer, I'll segue into beans and tomatoes, but slowly, because I found my peas produce a pretty long time. And a few other odds and ends depending how pea-crazy I become and how much room is left. I'm gonna improvise. I'll probably have dead spots between peas as the season goes on, and stick something in there.

I must of gotten in the mood after I drew my garden boxes and started planning. I also ordered the first batch of seeds. I went through all my existing seeds and found I was almost out of eggplant, cuc's, peppers and carrots. This year I went to a local source "farmdirectseed" for the first batch to see if locally grown seed produces any better. Last year was very poor for eggplant and the poblano's were small so I want to see if the seed makes a difference. I still need to order two more tomato types, two more lettuces and one special cuc. that they do not have. Now if the snow would leave and the weather would warm up I could get out there and clean up the beds, refill and replenish them and otherwise do what I was suppose to do last fall. Rolling Eyes
