New Year: We’ve gotten hit with a crazy snow storm that has hit the Pacific Northwest.  We’ve gotten around 24 inches of snow in the last 3 days.  Thank goodness for a big snow storm.  I’ve been wondering what we’ll do for our summer moisture. 

The garden is completely buried now.  I never did get my gypsum lime on there.  Guess it will have to wait for spring.  All my seed catalogs are coming in and I’m salivating over them.  I’m thinking I’m going to try putting at least one raised bed in this year in my vegetable garden.  I eventually would like to get it all into raised beds and be able to build a green house over about half the garden.  I have a small greenhouse that works well for starting seeds and all but it would be nice to extend my season for my tomatoes especially.  Maybe if I do a greenhouse I could grow some peppers and melons too.

About littlehawkyarns

I'm a gardener that is trying to provide good food for my family to enjoy. I have two children, two dogs, a husband, four chickens, and four cats. In addition gardening I enjoy handwork such as knitting, crochet, and sewing. I'm in the process of trying to learn tatting and embroidery as well. I am soon adding more critters to the collection since we just got property and I spin yarn.
