Several weeks ago, we ordered our garden seeds from Seed Savers Exchange. You can check out their website and order a free catalog which contains beautiful pictures of all kinds of beautiful fruits and vegetables and herbs.
Our seeds arrived, and several children prepared the seed trays. Once everything was ready, we started planting some seeds to hopefully get a bit of a head start this year. Next year, we will start earlier! We were thrilled to wake up one morning, a few days later, and see our little seeds sprouting already!
With the ever increasing amount of food we go through and the cost of feeding a large family with health in mind–having a large productive garden is really going to be a huge blessing if we can pull it off! We will see how it works out, being that mom will not be able to be head gardener this year due to her being very great with child.
