Note an increased selection of Asian greens and season extending veggies.  I’m also planning on planting a large row of kale and greens for the hens.  No doubt I’ve overlooked something, but I’m close enough to Johnny’s that I can visit the storefront over lunch to pick up anything else I need.

    It certainly looks like a well thought out selection — it won’t be long before we’ll be labouring over all those little seedlings again. At least, that’s what I keep telling myself. :)

    great list! I’ve already got my seeds, and now realize I forgot some. I don’t know sweet woodruff?

    • Ali Says:

      Sweet woodruff is a sweetly-scented flowering groundcover for shady areas. I’ve got some growing in the front bed, under the big spruce, and thought I’d add some more in the fern border under the flowering crab.

  3. Kate@LivingTheFrugalLife Says:

    Dang, you’re early, Ali! Impressive list.

    This makes me totally jealous, by the way: “I’m close enough to Johnny’s that I can visit the storefront over lunch…”

    I still haven’t even gotten my Johnny’s catalog. I’m getting concerned enough that I may have to call them if it isn’t here tomorrow…

  4. Ali Says:

    Hee hee… the Johnny’s people are great, so helpful, and I love that they are employee-owned. Someday I will have to visit Johnny’s farm for a tour and post about it on the blog.

  5. Robin Says:

    I love your profile pic! I’m working on my list and going to study your list while I’m looking for replacements. I haven’t been to Johnny’s yet but plan to…some day.

    Kate, I know a lot of people haven’t received their Johnny’s catalog yet. I don’t remember it being this late last year.

    • Ali Says:

      I haven’t received a Johnny’s catalog in the mail yet, but did my shopping on line. I’m trying lots of new Asian greens and lettuces, trialing them for season extension and deliciousness. It would be great to eat home grown salad all winter…. or even for most of the winter!

  6. julie Says:

    WOW, I am impressed, are you on the ball or what! I need to have a discussion with my “girls” to see what would soothe their palate. Need to keep our feathered friends happy.

    • Ali Says:

      I’ll keep you posted on the row of mixed Kale I’m planning on growing for the girls. They do seem to relish the greens I give them at this time of year. The other day the were very happy to see cabbage, kale and some parsley.

  7. Diana Smth Says:

    Already bought and received all my seeds that I need…the wants are an entirely different list!!! Those glorious catalogs are so enticing. We will probably make a trip over to Baker Creek this month,too, so working on a list for there. It is a great place to visit. Excited about their spring festival since I just retired and now all my weekends are mine to enjoy and since they are only 50 miles away we can be home in time to milk the cow….DEE
