She is challenging us all to a 4 season garden! Now, that may be all fine and nice for some people, but here, we've got a foot of snow on the ground (although it's melting quickly with the warm up we're having) and we get temps into the negative teens- if not colder on occasion- in the winter. This will definitely be a challenge for me. But, expanding the seasons of the garden was one of my hopes for the year anyway, so this fits right into my plans. Mwahahaha. Good thing I've already been calculating the fall planting dates for things.
But, not only does she challenge us to plant so we can harvest in all 4 seasons, she is throwing down the gauntlet and challenging us to grow at least one new thing each season. Hmmm, things I've never grown before. Well, let's see, This year, I'm planting melons I've never grown- that will be a new thing for the summer. I'm also growing kale for the first time this year so I'm thinking that will be my winter harvest. For fall, hmm, I've got some black radish seeds that I'm going to try. And, I've decided to try my hand at leeks this spring. So, I guess finding new things wasn't as hard as I thought.
Come on, join in. It should be fun.
