 I have been planning it ever since I received my 1st seed catalog in the mail before Thanksgiving!  It's been driving me crazy because I want to plant my gardens SO BAD!!!!

We will start getting the garden whenever the ground is no longer hard with frost.  It's usually sometime in late April, early May.  After 1 round of having it plowed with the tractor and letting it dry, we have it tilled with the tractor and let it dry.  Then we are ready to plant.  That's usually in mid May.

Yes!  Our school is doing a seed fundraiser.  My garden is going to double this year and am adding a lettuce table.

We do garden recovery and planting the first week of March.We have flowers and a separate veggie garden.It normally gets to hot for tomatoes in July...I LOVE fresh tomatoes...but I read about planting some tomatoes in wheeled containers and keeping them in the shade a certain number of hours a day.I can't wait to see if it really works like the article says.

Yup a lot of our flowers come from fundraisers ;)

I planned to spend today at the garden center but we are getting freezing rain AGAIN.very unusual for us :( go away cold weather I'm itchin for some planting

ZBandMom it sounds like you have a fantastic size garden.Jealous here lol

Not even close to time for us yet. It depends on the last frost which has been late April the past couple of years.

I am. Last year's was a disaster, so we're starting over. We've brought in some manures and things to get the soil ready. I've ordered my seeds, now, but it took me like 4 weeks to decide what I'm getting. I start planting in March.
