I have been so busy planning our garden this past few weeks. Ordering, organizing and planning has been the theme around here as of late.
We consulted recently with Hatchet and Seed , and got some great ideas, tips and inspiration and are ready and raring to go.
I’ve been recently chatting with a few friends and family and wondering what they are growing or what varieties they are growing. A few asked what we are growing so I thought I would list what we opted to go with this year.
