I have begun sorting through my seeds. The seed catalogs have been coming for a month now. I love looking at them and dreaming. Right now I really can’t justify buying seeds. I have a ton. Although I don’t know if I have basil. That is one herb I use lots of. When I say “I” what is really meant is my husband since he does the majority of the cooking.
I think I am going to bite the bullet and build raised beds this year. I’m hoping to do 9 beds measuring 4 foot x 8 foot. I figure these measurements will work the easiest since most lumber comes cut to 8 foot lengths. My clay soil and my lack of time sure make a mess of my garden. I’m hoping the beds make a little sense out of it.
