Get Your Garden On (Despite the Snow)

garden roundup1

On the eve of winter storm Stella, I’m completely looking forward to doing some more garden planning by the wood stove while the snow comes down. I have to keep my motivation high lest I sneak under the covers until it’s actually green outside, so today I’m sharing some of the things in my garden-to-be scrapbook. It’s my first spring at my first home so yes, I’m excited!

I am reading as much as I can to make sure I don’t go over budget with things I don’t actually need the first time around. We’re planning a small 10′ x 10′ vegetable plot with fencing, and a small flower cutting garden, which is taking up most of my research time. If you have any tips for either endeavors, please share them with me in the comments. Please. I’m in West Virginia in USDA Garden Zone 6A and yes, we have deer. In the meantime, enjoy these decidedly spring treats and the books I’m reading during the big snow. –Caitlin
