I cant believe that it is February already! This weather is all over the map for sure! I have started getting my compost for the garden. Since we mostly container garden we need to refresh the soil. Since we have used this soil for 2 years now we are doing a total refresh! Mr. Fix it and Master chef have taken 20 of the tubs and dumped them into a spot that I want to till up to grow onions, beets and radishes. I tilled the spot before they dumped them into the space and have gone back and tilled the used compost all in! I have my list of plants that I want to purchase all ready to go for this season. I know alot of people ask me why i don't start my own. Well i have found a wholesale outlet that will let me purchase flats from them. They charge me $7 a flat, i just have to buy the whole flat and they want me to buy at least 20 flats. It is still cheaper to buy them from them then start them myself, this way i don't have to heat my greenhouse! 

Kidding season is over for us. It was an ok year. Had a few hiccups and now we have all healthy and happy kids! The mommas all look alot happier not being as wide as a tank!

Now is the time to start looking in some places for a final markdown on canning items. They are in the final push to get them out the door before the new items come in. I have found gallons of vinegar for .49¢, Mrs. Wages pickle mixes for .49¢ and also canning jars are marked down! Great time to stock up for that summer canning run!

What is on your planting list? Anything new? old? a go to?
