Another wish list...

...the difference, you ask? I have CHRISTMAS MONEY to back this one up! LOL! I spent a bit of time dreamin' of spring on Burpee's website and created this wishlist:

I'll shop around at a few more sites before buying, but the great thing about square foot gardening is that these seeds would last several years following Mel's plan!

Oh how I love square foot gardening! After the first year, we did have to study up on homemade organic fertilizers though, so there are drawbacks. Seeds of Change is the one we drool over every year. Have you heard the "harvesttime blues" song on A Prairie Home Companion?

I just sent for a Seeds of Change catalog! Thanks for the tip!

I am deviating from Mel's soil plan just a bit by adding layers of compost material (food scraps, coffee grounds, egg shells, etc.) to do a bit of composting on site. I'm hoping that will add a bit of nutrients to the soil to boost production...we'll see. When we lived up in northern OK, I had one square I used for a variety of lettuces and LOVED it! I may have to tap your experiences with organic fertilizers, though, at a later time! :-D

I haven't heard harvesttime blues...but I'm heading over to the website to see if I can find it...
