Has anyone been starting to think about their garden?

Do you garden? Have you started thinking of what you are going to plant this spring yet?

I wanted to get a garden in last year, but it never happened and this year we WILL get one in. Not sure what things I want to plant yet though other than tomatoes...

I can't wait for gardening season! I do a small one at home, and share one at a friend's house because she has a ton of space.

Oh, I bet that is nice to have both of them! We have a pretty big yard here at my mom's house, just have to figure out where she will let us put it... the thing that held us back last year was that she wanted the garden to be in like an elevated box thing and no one ever got around to building one.

As soon as the two feet of snow on my 'garden' melt, I'm going to get my little one out there. Not sure what flowers we'll put in, but as long as I figure out how to get rid of those damn weeds I'll be happy. I already planted some tulips two falls ago while pregnant. When they bloomed, I cried.

yup. The SIL and I are going into the herb business.  We are also going to try to sell things like red, white and blue potatoes, fancy carrots and other healthy fun veggies.  I also am trying to figure out how many tomato plants and pepper plants I will need this year.  :) can't wait!

Those are nice! :). Now I'm craving fresh from the garden tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and green beans

Yeah we have a billion inches of snow here too - I can't wait for it to go away and get warmer here so we can get this garden in! Are you only doing flowers, or will you do any fruits and veggies too?

I was thinking of doing a couple of herbs too AND potatoes! Never tried potatoes in a garden so a little nervous about those. We want to do peppers too and will probably also do cucumbers... there is so much I want to plant just hope I have room for everything I want lol.
