garden seed ordered


just got through selecting 2016 garden seed from the seed savers catalog. we have had so much rain the rivers are out, and I think the spring rains have begun. trying a new to me green snap bean, cucumber, 2 sweet peppers, a new tomato, okra, and the same beet. plant starting is not that far off will start getting the grow room back in order next month.

we had around 5" of rain just think of the snow we would be scooping. around here some farm ground along the river was flooded but all the crops were out. some of the larger towns, Des- Moines etc. had some. still around 40 and partly cloudy. I know I'm jumping the gun but I was going through the catalog and thought next year they would be higher soooooooooo I just ordered them. if I need any thing else I can get from the Amish store, I checked with them they didn't have the beans, cucumbers, and peppers I wanted. hoping these will be what I'm looking for. not freezing veggies this year, pressure and hot water bath canning. I canned chili this year it was great no thawing just open the jar. this will leave the freezer for meat. have a great day and think SPRING!

seed came yesterday! Merry Christmas to me, the rest I need can be easily found at the Amish store. bought some new lights for the grow room, will spend January getting it ready. this is the time I really enjoy getting ready to start and the actually starting the seed and of Corse eating. have a great day
