Time to plan the vegetable garden

Now that Christmas is over the seed catalogues have started rolling in and I have time to think about Spring and start planning the garden. This year is special because I am doing my first community garden! This is something I have always wanted to do and although I'm am starting off on a very small scale, I'm so excited.

I'm going to put in a large garden at a friend's house and three families are going to share in the labor (hopefully equally) and share in the produce. I feel as though it is my mission in life to help people learn to grow their own food and I think this is a good way to teach, even if it is just a few people.

We'll keep our own garden at home, of course. But I need to order seeds pretty soon because I start the tomato and pepper seedlings in March. I love this time of year. It holds so much promise.
