Seeds of Change Giving Garden in first part of transformation!

Gardening is a matter of your enthusiasm holding up until your back gets used to it. ~Author Unknown

Linda and I cleaned out two of the raised beds in January. 
We found a dry day and took advantage of it!  We dug out overgrown
lavendar plants and turned the ground under.
Today, J and I removed the remainder of the old lavendar plants and
worked the remaining beds to get them ready for some "Black Gold"!
...Just like fine wine....aged manure is well worth the wait!
Here is a list of some of the Heirloom Veggies we are planning on growing this year.  Every day I check the mail for my seeds to arrive from Seed Savers Exchange.  They are a non-profit organization of gardeners dedicated to saving and sharing heirloom seeds.The selection of seeds that they have is amazing and through their site you can access forums and blogs about seeds and gardening. (Check them out via the link above)
