The new veggie patch is coming along very nicely so now what to grow..
I was very lucky to receive several gardening books this Christmas which I'm now using to help me decide how to arrange and what to plant in my garden. If my plans work out I should have enough produce to preserve and freeze most of the harvest for use through the winter.
Last year I purchased the BAll Complete book of Home Preserving on Amazon. It has 400 recipes for making jams, sauces, pickles and salsas which I'll use to process my fruit and vegetables.
There are several vegetables I can grow 4-6 weeks before the last frost and for me that can be as early as April 1st. I'll start with leeks and peas and a few weeks after that I'll plant carrots, beets, parsnips, radishes and turnips.
Dagwood is doing much better but still not as active as he used to be. He has about 6 stitches which will have to be removed in about a weeks time.
