Preparing for gardening this Spring!

I have been thinking about the upcoming gardening season and what I want to grow this year.  I planted 3 kiddie pool gardens last year and I was very pleased with my results!  I want to do that again this year and add a forth kiddie pool garden to plant  herbs.   While blogging this morning I saw this post from V and Co. She has started plant starts for her garden already.  I have decided that I want to do that too!  I have seeds I can use from past gardening attempts.  Last year I bought starts from Wal- Mart but I think it would be more rewarding to start my own this time around.

As for flowers I found a neat blog called Meadow brook farm. She has some great advice on how to mix your annuals with your perennials and lots of other great tips.  A warning though!  The pictures on her blog will give you a giant case of spring fever!  I don't where the rest of you live, but here in Utah the weather still thinks it is Winter in April! :-(


  1. I am so excited to start gardening too...hopefully the snow will stay away! Usually I do some seeds and some starts. I think I will do the majority in starts this year...mostly because the Kenison's are selling them for so cheap. Also because we are doing a smaller garden this year. I love your kiddie pool idea. I bet you don't have ANY weeds!

  2. I noticed a sign in front of the Kenisons house. How much are they selling the starts for?
    You are right about the weeds in the kiddie pool garden. I did not pull one weed last year! I was a very happy camper!
