One of the things I plan to RECLAIM this year is my garden. I've been gardening since I was a little girl. My dad was an avid gardener and he always tilled up a little space for me.
In 2018 we went on vacation at the end of April and I was booked with living estate sales during prime planting time. We did get the garden planted, but then got busy with my sales. It was also a weird weather year. I feel that I didn't have enough time to spend in the garden and my spirit and emotional health felt it!
My friend Renee, has an incredible garden! She reaps more in hers than I do with double the space. This year she grew these amazing squash called Lakota. They were beautiful! Those squash led me to Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. I just received my 2019 seed book! First, the pictures - wow! Then I found their YouTube channel. Each video is a 2-5 minute history lesson on each variety. I'm hooked!
It's January in Wisconsin, what do gardeners do? We dream and plan. I have an area on the south side of our house that was set up like a little patio. Since becoming empty nesters, we really don't use it. Then it hit me, that space could be a project for a post as an area to RECLAIM. Today, I'm making plans for cold frames, creative containers and of course seeds!
What does your garden look like in January? What types of seeds do you want to plant in 2019?
