    Today is January 25, 2010. Has Spring Fever hit you yet? Here are a few things to consider this week.
    1. Order seed catalogs. There are so many to choose from but here is a place to begin your search: Internet garden catalog list , this list has over 1000 catalogs in catagories or listed alphabetically.
    Then when you receive your seed catalogs begin to order seeds. If you want to plant peppers, they should be planted by the first of March. So you do have time to begin to choose your seeds.

    2. Plan your garden, decide what to plant where and what changes you want to make. Take out pictures and notes from last year and work on any changes.

    3. Do you want to learn how to save seeds this year? Remember, use only Heirlooms and isolate them from other like plants. Learning how to save seeds is a process, you can learn more about it in catalogs, magazines, books and on the Internet. And don’t forget your gardening buddies.

    4. Plant something new this year, it will be fun. Let your children try something new too. As usual, I will try about 30 new and different plants and 15 new gardening techniques this year. I can’t wait to get started!!!

    5. Begin a garden log. Put your ideas, plans, pictures, information and dreams here. Next year when you begin your garden plans you won’t be disapointed. The cool thing about taking pictures is that if you have your date set correctly in your camera, you can refer back to the picture (go into properties on your computer) and know when you it was taken.

    6. Garden every day. Research, plan, dream, work or think about your garden each and every day. This way your garden won’t overwhelm you and you can have a very sucessful garden.
