Garden Fever - Seeds

Okay y'all, I admit it - I'm going garden crazy over here.

Today we went to Menards and bought seeds! This is only our third year gardening and our first time to start seeds indoors! (Some of the seeds will be sown directly into the garden.) And, if something doesn't work then I will buy the plant like we usually do. But, we are going to attempt it anyway.

We hope to make small advances every year!

New this year: 
- starting seeds indoors
- hoping to save seeds from heirloom plants
- going to learn to "pickle" peppers
- going to learn to pickle cucumbers
- eggplant
- herbs
- more annual flowers for companions/pest control
- woven wire for climbing beans and peas (or maybe a teepee too!)
- chickens (just as soon as Paul gets the tractor made)
- maybe some fruit trees and berries
- pressure canning
- using a tractor tire as a raised bed ; ) 

Who thinks I'm biting off more than I can chew? (Don't answer that, it was a rhetorical question. *winks*)

Cost of garden so far: $170 top soil + $33 seeds
