Anyone else getting the bug???? I've already bought a few seeds as an early Christmas present to myself. It's still a bit early, but I'm already planning the projects needing done before

Just starting ... I have a Christmas Amaryllis that bloomed yesterday. We also found a PURPLE sweet potato at the natural grocery store yesterday. It will be used to start some slips.

Any garden has to be better than last years... it sucked.

We got potatoes and some onions. That is all we planted ... other than a few broccoli plants that the hens promptly destroyed. Remember ... I started tomato starts 4 times last year. They kept being dumped over. This year I hope to have a fence around the garden area AND protect those plant starts better.

We got our seeds and starter plants yesterday. Working on the garden boxes today. We did a fall crop of green beans last year and they turned out great. We'll definitely do a fall crop again this year. We also did garlic for the 1st time ever. We planted 48 bulbs and everyone of them made it over the winter and is about 4 inches tall right now. We planted the German White. I think this year we will add carrots to the fall crop. I'm most excited about potatoes this year. We have tried them in the tires 3 years in a row and haven't had anything over a silver dollar yet, and probably only about 10 total potatoes. This year we are using a raised bed and mounds, should be so much better. We also have sweet potatoes left from last summer that are sprouting. We're going to try our own starts from those.
When we bought our potatoes yesterday, the lady at the greenhouse said she would not be getting anymore because the delivery driver said they were doing necessity orders only, she couldn't get extras this year, only what she had previously ordered. If you haven't bought your seeds and such yet, go get them or you may not get any.

I planted 12 pots of romaine yesterday, using the vid from Hollis & Nancy.

That should give you some nice salads in a few weeks RR.
