Garden Journal {February 2011}

I can't believe the strawberries are already coming on.  I've already lost some of them to bugs, not sure what I'm going to do about that.  Really looking forward to my spring garden!! Harvesting loads of kale and parsnips right now.  Beans just coming up and did cucumber and zuchinni starters last week.  Hoping the snap peas will bud again soon and I have many pepper plants that I am hoping take off for their second year.

After the rain, I found about 8 volunteer tomato plants, so I can save my money there.  I did buy a pot of brandy wine's at the farmers market because they looked so lush and beautiful.  They were about 8 weeks old and I got 3 for $10, hard to pass up.  There is a new farmer's market in Gilbert right by my favorite restaurant, Liberty Market.  It is Saturday mornings, I got to make it over there one of these days.

Just loaded some podcasts on my ipod from Preparedness Radio.  They do a weekly show with Jim Kennard who speaks on the Mittleider Method, which has taught me a lot about gardening.  You can check it out at the Food for Everyone website.

I would really like to put together more gardening classes, there is so much interest.  I need topic ideas.  I am stuck at fertilizing and pruning.  Throw me some ideas if you have them.

  1. I have to say that I am in love with your blog. Every single post I will see what it's about and think, "OH! I'm so glad she posted about this...I've been wanting to learn!" I wish I lived in AZ so I could take some of your classes (I'm in TX). Keep up the awesome work and thank you for the service your blog provides. I love learning new things about healthy eating/living.


It's rude to eat and run. Humor me with conversation please!
