Oh yeah! Also, my carrots from last spring were finally ready… Well they were probably ready a while back but I never harvested them since the tops hadn’t started dying. But either way the chickens were scratching around in the planter they were in and it reminded me. They looked huge, when I started digging and here’s what i got!

I cannot wait to cook with them! It’s so nice to pick things right out or your garden for dinner, I’m really hoping my garden this year produces a ton more then last year!! We shall see.

What are you planting this spring? Have you started your seeds yet? (I know it’s a bit early for most of the country) Do you start yours inside or out? In pots or straight into the ground ?

Spring 2013 veggie garden

Finally back to my garden! Today I started my spring seeds.

The other day I found seed trays and small plastic starter pots at Dollar Tree (I love that place), I already had lots of seeds, and a bag of organic soil; so I decided to start planting my spring seeds!

I went through my seeds a picked out what I wanted to plant, probably way too much stuff but since I start my seeds in trays outside they don’t always take.

I planted 20 pots and 2-16 hole trays.

I would love to hear what you are planting this spring! If you start from seed or seedling? How you start your seeds? How you prep your garden beds?
