You've Got Mail Monday

Time to start planning that garden for spring. The groundhog telling us that we will have an early spring certainly helped me feel like I better start browsing my gardening catalogs. I've already been thinking about how I can expand the vegetable garden this year. The three raised beds were nice, but not quite enough space. I saw this neat idea online where a gardener had built a slanted support system for her pea plants and planted lettuce underneath it. I think I'll try that this year. My lettuce takes a beating during our hot summers, and it would gain me some space.

Hope you'll share a gardening tip with us, too.

My Gardener's Supply Company catalog arrived last week, as did a new one from GardenersEdge. What trouble I could get into if I had an unlimited budget. Of course, that applies to home decor, too. My FrontGate and Ballard Designs catalogs also arrived, reminding me, I really need to give the house a pick me up.

Only one book this week: Under Shifting Glass by Nicky Singer. It arrived without a prior request. The Lil Diva (11) said it sounded interesting. We might try it out.

That's it from my neck of the woods. Hope you have a great week.

Himself is starting to plan his garden for the year. I don't really know much about the growing; I do the processing
