I received the most beautiful seed catalog in the mail last week. It is from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. There are so many unusual varieties to choose from. I love flipping through the pages and dreaming about some day growing every one of them! I've never tried to grow vegetables before, but this spring I am going to give it a try.
Instead of doing a traditional row garden with all the tilling and hoeing, I am going to try a unique and easy garden: bags of topsoil. I got the idea from an article in Mother Earth News. All you do is poke holes in the bottom of a bag of topsoil and cut a hole in the top for the seeds or plants. Sounds simple enough for me.
I've made my list of seeds I want and will order them from Baker Creek soon. My garden will be small this year. If it is successful, I'll expand it next year.
