My one goal today was to order my seeds and seed potatoes. It’s now after 11 pm, and I finally got it done – only because my friend Melanie posted about her order and reminded my sorry self. This post is a copy cat post. Thank you, Melanie.

    After I found the 3 year old “planting” (read dumping) my current stash of seeds into one of the vegetable beds, I need seeds. Fortunately, I was able to rescue my favorite green bean, Jade, from Fedco. Even though I have time, at this point, I may just go to Home Depot and buy organic seeds from them. I’m just not up for paying shipping charges, and I don’t know what I need besides lettuce.

    I also planned on cutting back this year though with the increase in the price of gas which will affect the cost of food, I may end up planting more than I had planned.

      I’ve never ordered seeds before. I usually just buy them from Menards. I also don’t like to pay shipping and I always have Menards rebate money which means I don’t have to pay anything out of pocket for them. This year though, I was motivated to order some…we’ll see how it goes!

    Seed Savers is beautiful, local, and a really good cause. Not that Baker’s Creek isn’t awesome. They are too!

    You have seen the state of “repair” in my house, so you won’t be surprised to learn I rarely step in to a Menards.

    Checking out Trees of Antiquity now. Can’t wait to see your garden!

    This is very timely for me as I need to plan my garden as well. I will probably keep it very small though and only plant maybe 4 things. I am still learning. Plus I plan to do a CSA this year.

    Are you going to see the Laura Ingalls Wilder house while your in Mansfield? You should, it’s really neat (and would be perfect for my 4’7″ sister). I love the Bakers Creek seed catalog, I’ve not been to their place(even though I grew up and lived only an hour away), but may just have to swing in if I have time when we go to Missouri next month.

      You bet we’re heading to Mansfield for Rocky Ridge Farm!! I was there as a very young child and can’t wait to take my kids (and see it again myself). 🙂 My parents live about 3 hours north of Mansfield in Sedalia.
