Well we are 26 days in and there have already been so many wonderful things happening. 

I have started my tomato and pepper seeds in the house!! I cant wait until it is warm enough to get them in the ground. I have decided this year to do tomato's and peppers in raised beds instead of my garden plot.

I want to save my plot for green beans, squash, cucumbers, and okra. I am really excited about getting all these wonderful veggies started (from seed of course). 

I need to get onion sets pretty quick since they need to be in the ground starting in February. 

As of now my chickens are ruling the garden and the entire yard. I bought ten hens about three weeks ago and I LOVE THEM! They are so fun to watch, their noises and personalities are so funny.  I am getting around three eggs a day so hopefully the others will start laying soon! Once they are in full production I will be selling farm fresh free range eggs at our local wool house. 

This summer my plans are to try to supplement some income with my produce. I want to take fresh veggies and eggs to at least two farmers markets. So I have got to get started making these raised beds and get my soil ready for a productive spring, summer and fall!
