With a new house comes all sorts of plans for a spring season of fix-it-ups. I am guessing it does at least, this house was our first. So for me that statement is true. Our biggest plans this year are for the outside. Flowerbeds wil be plowed up and planted, I think we have eight or so in the works and those include herb gardens. A compost pile has already been started. The main goal is to get a vegetable garden going this year. I would expect it to cut down dramatically on what we purchase at the grocery store each week. We have had bell peppers and tomatoes at the house we rented but I tried to keep them in pots. With room for a full-fledged garden I am thinking beans (black beans, pinto beans), carrots, beets, lettuce, celery, onions and garlic. I have a few tricks I am intending to try which I learned from The Organic Gardeners for the short time I had Sirius last month. There are also some rosebushes that came with the house that I must do something with. They seem to be old and in need of pruning. Maybe I should talk to them as well, I hear that works.
