Plotting & Scheming

It's time. By now most of the seed catalogs have found their way to my mailbox and I am ready to turn toward spring and start to plan out the garden for this year! I knew it was time to transition from daydreaming to actual planning when my Membership Renewal arrived in the mail from the Fenway Garden Society last week.
Earlier this week I took a look at the Grown Away seed box to determine what, if anything, will have to be ordered a head of time. For such a small garden space I've built up a fairly good stock of seeds allowing for plenty of variety when planning the garden for this year.

I plan on only ordering a few herb seeds to replenish what is depleted from my supplies, but when looking through the garden catalogs and reading about the grand plans of other gardeners who knows what I will actually end up with!
Once the concrete plans actually take shape I will make an attempt to share them before the fun (hours and hours of weeding) actually begins.

Have you started planning your edible garden yet? Will you try growing anything new or different this season??

I have to get a better storage system for my seeds. Mine is a hot mess. Sometimes I forget to plant something because I forgot I had seeds for them. One thing I definitely want to grow more of this year are herbs.

In the 20+ years I've been gardening, I don't think there has been a year that I haven't tried something new - at least a new variety of an old favorite. Or at least I don't remember one. Often it is weird Asian greens (there are so many). Last year it was celery and fava beans. This year it is going to be sweet potatoes.
