Get Your Garden Plan Going

Well it may not feel like it, but spring is just around the corner.  And with spring comes the great garden planting. 
Now is a perfect time to plan your garden and start buying seeds.  The seed racks at the local home centers have started carying heirloom and organic seeds.  What you can't find there, you can find online with a simple Google search.  Keep your seeds to heirloom varieties, or at least open polinated varieties.  This way you can save your own seeds from your garden and save a bit of cash in the coming years.
Make a "to do" list of things that need to get done on a yearly basis as well as any extra chores that may need to get done.  Check the condition of raised beds, start a "grocery list" of soil amendments, and start deciding what to plant and where.
Getting organised now can save you time and hassle when the soil reaches that perfect planting temperature.
